When you contribute to a nonprofit organization, you expect your gifts to advance the organization’s mission. You expect the organization to observe any restrictions you place on your gifts and to use your gift wisely and cost effectively. Your expectations deserve to be treated with respect.
Sadly the world of philanthropy is rife with examples of organizations that have broken faith with their donors. It is a problem so serious that it bears a common name: the problem of donor intent.
At Florida TaxWatch, we believe that we have an obligation to respect your philanthropic intent as donor. We believe we are strictly accountable to you, and we pledge always to respect your philanthropic intent.
To that end:
- Florida TaxWatch Board of Trustees meets each year to revisit, review and recommit to the values and core vision, mission, and activities of the organization.
- Florida TaxWatch prepares and presents a quarterly report to the executive committee of the Board of Trustees regarding the use and attainment of funds.
- Florida TaxWatch employs an independent auditing firm to review and comment on the sources and proper uses of donor funds annually.
- Florida TaxWatch meets with donors to review and account for the expenditure of your funds in the previous year.
- The President & CEO of Florida TaxWatch is personally responsible for answering major donor questions and reporting expenditures of donor funds.
We pledge to you, our donors, our friends, our supporters, and members of team TaxWatch that the Board of Trustees and the leadership of Florida TaxWatch will always respect your philanthropic intent and will always hold ourselves accountable to you in the wise use of your generous contributions.
