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 Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) audit of May 31, 2019 (Note 9, Contributed services and gifts-in-kind):

RAINN received contributed services and gifts-in-kind in fiscal 2019 on which it placed a total value of $1,759,398. Of this amount, $1,018,378 consisted of donated legal services, and $538,375 consisted of donated technology services and web hosting. 

[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.]

According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) audit of May 31, 2019 (Note 11, Concentration of revenue):

"The contract with the Department of Defense comprises 26% and 42% of total revenue for the fiscal years ended May 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively."

According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) audit of May 31, 2019 (Note 10, Related party transactions):

"RAINN entered into a contracting agreement with A&I Publishing for their services to RAINN. A&I Publishing is wholly owned by the President of RAINN. During the years ended May 31, 2019 and 2018, RAINN incurred expenses of $421,800 and $342,417, respectively, under this agreement. In addition, RAINN reimbursed A&I Publishing approximately $12,110 and $4,395 for the years ended May 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, for costs incurred by A&I Publishing on behalf of RAINN. The amount due to A&I Publishing as of May 31, 2019 and 2018 was $79,518 and $73,870, respectively..."


In addition, according to the RAINN audit of May 31, 2019 (Note 8, Note payable):

"Since 1994, RAINN has used the services of a company (A&I Publishing) that is wholly owned by the President of RAINN (see Note 10 [cited above]). Fees for these services were covered by operational agreements on which payment was deferred due to limited cash available to RAINN. As a settlement  for the past due amounts, RAINN entered into a note payable agreement for the estimated value of these services. The note in the original amount of $159,478 was due in 2019 and bore interest at 5%. The annual payment of principal and interest was $36,830. 

"The note was paid in full as of May 31, 2019.
