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 National Military Family Association (NMFA) audit of December 31, 2020 (Note 11, Risks and Uncertainties):

"NMFA continues to feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic declared by the World Health Organization in early 2020. Due to the highly contagious nature of the virus, the requirement for social distancing, limits on gatherings, and restrictions on travel, planning for in-person events, including Operation Purple (camps / family retreats) require more flexibility. Our revenue and expenses also continue to remain uncertain, due to the pandemic. In addition, both domestic and international equity markets have experienced significant fluctuations since March 2020. The ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the amount and likelihood of loss is unknown and depends on future developments."
