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.

CharityWatch is unable to provide a letter grade rating for TIME'S UP Now at this time in consideration of its November 19, 2021 announcement of an organizational "reset" that will include the interim CEO stepping down by the end of 2021, and severance packages for its staff through March 2022. For this reason, CharityWatch has assigned TIME's UP Now a rating of "?" for its fiscal year ended 12/31/2019. CharityWatch contacted TIME's UP Now on November 22, 2021 to request a copy of its audited financial statements and IRS Tax Form 990 for the fiscal year ended 12/31/2020. As of November 23, 2021 we have not yet received a response. In 2019 the organization reported raising cash contributions of more than $1.6 million, according to its audited financial statements of the same fiscal year. 

The TIME's UP organization released an operational audit dated November 16, 2021, in conjunction with its reset announcement. Widely reported governance issues at the nonprofit in 2021 have included the majority of its board members stepping down and a dissolution of its advisory board.   

TIME's UP Now is the 501(c)(4) social welfare arm of the TIME's Up organization. CharityWatch has also assigned a "?" rating to the 501(c)(3) public charity arm, TIME's UP Foundation, for which we provide a separate rating for its fiscal year ended 2019. 

CharityWatch does provide a letter grade rating for National Women's Law Center, which administers and operates the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund through the National Women's Law Center Fund, LLC. TIME'S UP Now supported the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund in the past, according to the Statement of Program Service Accomplishments in Part III of the TIME'S UP Now Form 990 filing for the year ended 12/31/2019. At this time CharityWatch does not have information indicating whether or not this arrangement will continue in light of TIMES's UP Now's organizational "reset."
