About Our Finances

Our financial records are examined monthly by our Treasurer Clay Mobley and are reviewed each year by David Pelliccione, C.P.A. and audited by the Georgia Advocacy Office. Our reviewed financial statements are available upon request. Our Form 990s are available on Guidestar.org as well.

Over the years our financial strategy has been to increase local grassroots donations and decrease our dependence on government support. We no longer apply for a City of Savannah grant and our largest donor is the Georgia Advocacy Office, with whom we contract to provide protection and advocacy for people with developmental disabilities in Chatham County using the citizen advocacy model. The rest of our financial support comes from local individuals, businesses, churches and synagogues, family foundations and civic clubs. For this we are truly grateful.

Our revenue sources for Fiscal Year 2021 (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021) were:

Georgia Advocacy Office:  $90,000

Local Individuals: $ 58,000

Local Foundations: $ 28,000

Local Businesses: $16,000
