CharityWatch Analysts perform an in-depth analysis of charities' audited financial statements and IRS tax filings, and often review other documents such as state filings, annual reports, and fundraising contracts during their evaluations. Below are select notes that CharityWatch believes may be of interest to donors.

CharityWatch's rating of 350.org is for the 501(c)(3) public charity. The rating does not include the financial activities of the related 501(c)(4) tax-exempt, social welfare organization, 350.org Action Fund, for which CharityWatch does not provide a separate rating at this time.

According to the 350.org audit of September 30, 2022 (Note 4, Related Party Transactions):

"The Organization shares office space and other related expenses and services with 350.Org Action Fund (the Fund), a nonprofit organization exempt under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code. Costs have been allocated between the Organization and the Fund based upon salaries and other contractual arrangements. Total expenses allocated to the Fund for the year ended September 30, 2022, were approximately $17,000. Subsequent to year end, the September 30, 2022 balance owed to the Organization was paid.”

According to the charity’s Statement of Activities for its fiscal year ended 9/30/2022, 350.org reports receiving PPP Contributions in the amounts of $1,291,827 and $1,299,898 for its fiscal years 2022 and 2021, respectively.

According to Audit Note 5, Response to COVID-19:

“During the years ended September 20,2021 and 2020, the Organization received two Small Business Administration (SBA) loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

The PPP loans were waived by the Small Business Administration (SBA) during the year ended September 30, 2022, and as such, the loan proceeds are included as PPP contribution without donor restrictions on the statement of activities for the year ended September 30, 2022.”

According to the 350.org audit of September 30, 2022 (Note 11, Donated Services), 350.org received in-kind donated legal services and software licenses on which it placed a value of approximately $97,400.

[Note: CharityWatch generally excludes the value of in-kind (non-cash) donations of goods and services from its calculations of Program % and Cost to Raise $100. More information on how grades are calculated and the treatment of in-kind donations can be found on the Our Process page.]
