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.
|According to the Africare audit of June 30, 2017 (Note 11, Contingency):
"On October 17, 2016, Africare received a letter from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) claiming approximately $1,273,738 is due back to the agency for questioned costs resulting from Africare's 2015 fiscal year compliance audit. For the year ended June 30, 2017, management of Africare has obtained the supporting documentation to address the questioned costs totaling $1,226,311, leaving a remaining questioned costs balance of $47,427. The amount is recorded as a liability in the June 30, 2017 financial statements.
"The ability of Africare to continue as a going concern is dependent on the success of Africare's Board and management in raising unrestricted funding during the coming fiscal year and subsequent years to ensure that expenditures do not continue to exceed available funds. The [audited] financial statements have been prepared assuming that Africare will continue as a going concern. Management of Africare plans to cut costs and has demonstrated that they will have future commitments to sustain operations from donors for fiscal year 2018."
|According to the Africare audit of June 30, 2017 (Note 12, Litigation):
"As of June 30, 2017, Africare is the defendant in a number of legal actions in various countries. These lawsuits were filed in previous years against Africare for failure to properly abide by laws in the country for payroll and other fringe compensations entitled to local employees. Africare has accrued $291,100 for those lawsuits that are considered to be probable loss and estimable. While the final outcome cannot be determined at this time, management is of the opinion that the ultimate liability, if any, from the final resolution of these matters will not have a material effect on Africare's financial statements."
|According to the Africare audit of June 30, 2017 (Note 15, Accordia Merger):
"Effective July 16, 2016, Africare and Accordia Global Health Foundation (Accordia) merged. Africare acquired staff, a portfolio of programs and cash from Accordia's existing programs. The cash received totaled $549,248... There were no other remaining assets or liabilities on Accordia's financial records."
|According to the Africare audit of June 30, 2017 (Note 13, Loss Due to Misappropriation of Assets):
"During the year ended June 30, 2016, Africare recorded a loss due to misappropriation of assets. Africare's Tanzania program had payments totaling 751,802,879 Tanzania Shillings (equivalent $349,676) that were initially scheduled to be made to the Tanzania Revenue Authority but were rerouted to a fictitious company. In addition, Africare owes the Tanzania Revenue Authority interest and fees due to nonpayment totaling 174,557,608 Tanzania Shillings (equivalent $81,269). As of June 30, 2017, Africare had a remaining liability totaling $78,815 to the Tanzania Revenue Authority, which was paid subsequent to year end. Legal matters initiated by Africare against the former employee continue."
