This policy sets guidelines for the creation and dissemination of financial reports, including balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements, and budget-to-actual comparisons. These reports are prepared and distributed at regular intervals, such as monthly, quarterly, or annually, with interim reports created as needed.

Key stakeholders, including the Board of Directors, Executive Director, Finance Committee, internal staff, and external stakeholders, are the recipients of these reports, ensuring they are kept informed of your organization's financial standing. The policy also provides that financial reports are to be clear, concise, and readily understandable to foster transparency and facilitate effective decision-making. Regular reviews and updates are conducted to ensure the policy aligns with your organization's needs, best practices, and evolving regulatory requirements.
