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 International Medical Corps (IMC) tax filing for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, IMC reports receiving donated in-kind goods in fiscal 2017 on which it placed a value of approximately $3.4 million (IRS Form 990, Schedule M).

IMC also reports receiving donated medical services in fiscal 2017 on which it placed a value of $156,986 (IMC audited Statement of Activities for the year ended June 30, 2017).

[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.]
