Your Guide to Creating a Modern Nonprofit Annual Report:
An annual report is a complex beast of a project…or is it? A lot of meetings, stress, and far too many words are often put into these temporary snapshots of a nonprofit’s work. This guide breaks down these intimidating reports into an easy-to-follow guide while using the “5 W’s”: Who, What, When, Where, and Why. Taking a cue from our good friend, Simon Sinek, we’re going to start with what matters most:
- Why send an annual report?
- Who should receive your annual report?
- What do you put in an annual report?
- When should your nonprofit send its annual report?
- Where does a nonprofit’s annual report come into play?
- Nonprofit annual report FAQs
- Examples of nonprofit annual reports
Like any project your nonprofit organization takes on, an annual report should have a clear ROI and goals. Understanding the report’s mission and purpose will help you prepare a communication that dazzles while also informing readers. Whether your organization is just getting started, wrapping things up, or wants to see some examples of nonprofit annual reports that perform, this guide will help!
