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 Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger audit of June 30, 2023 (Note 12, Concentration Risk):

"The majority of the Organization's contributions and grants are received from corporations, foundations, and individuals and from agencies located throughout the state of California. As such, the Organization's ability to generate resources via contributions and grants is dependent upon the economic health of that area and of the state of California. An economic downturn could cause a decrease in contributions and grants that coincides with an increase in demand for the Organization's services."

According to the Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger audit of June 30, 2023 (Note 7, Employment Contract):

"The Organization has an employment contract with its Chief Executive Officer that provides for salary and benefits through June 30, 2027. As of June 30, 2023, the total remaining commitment for this contract was approximately $1,186,747."
