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 Good360 2021 audit and tax filing, Good360 received in-kind donated product contributions in 2021 on which it placed a total value of $1,663,992,329.

On April 27, 2021, SBA approved Good360's application for forgiveness of the PPP loan. As a result, Good360 recognized the forgiveness of the loan principal in the amount of $789,337 and interest of $7,981 in the accompanying [audited] statement of activities for the year ended December 31, 2021.

"On June 29, 2020, Good360 entered into a SBA loan under the Economic [Injury] Disaster Loan program for the amount of $150,000. The loan is set to mature on June 29, 2050. Monthly payments of principal and interest of $641 commenced on June 29, 2021 with an interest rate of 2.75% per annum."
