  • Outside Accountant #1: The Borgen Project’s bookkeeping and financial tracking is managed by an outside Accountant (not a staff member).
  • Outside Accountant #2: An accounting firm, separate from the Accountant who handles the day-to-day financials, reviews and files The Borgen Project’s annual report to the IRS (Form 990).
  • IRS: As with all nonprofit organizations, The Borgen Project reports annually to the IRS.
  • Secretary of State: As an organization based in the state of Washington, The Borgen Project also submits financial information annually to Washington’s Secretary of State for review.
  • Board of Directors: The Board of Directors also reviews financial information at every Board Meeting.
