We have corrected our form to reflect the correct line is 32 and not 33 (an older 990 form was used, causing the discrepancy). If your Financial Questionnaire form reflects the 990 reference line as 33, please disregard the 33 and reference line 32 from your most recent 990 as a guide for completing this information.
Additionally, some non-profits may have other additional financial factors, such as endowments, that may be reported differently and cause the financial information to not align specifically with the 990 information represented on the Financial Questionnaire. Please complete the questionnaire to the best of your ability and feel free to add explanations statements to the form or attach explanations as a separate sheet. Please be sure to upload as one PDF document. If you need to merge two PDF documents, a free application website at IlovePDF.com allows you to do that. iLovePDF | Online PDF tools for PDF lovers
