Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team

Our Financial Records

The Mission of the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team is to protect and preserve wildlife habitat as well as to educate and inspire our youth and our community members to become stewards of our planet.  An important step in our journey is to readily provide our financial status and reports to those who support our mission and our vision (or are considering support) including... members, donors, grantors, sponsors, and program participants. By providing clear information about what we do with the income we receive from these sources, we hope to further gain and keep your trust so we can have a broader reach and thereby a greater impact on the health of our planet.

  • The Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team is proud to announce we have reached the 2024 Platinum Seal of Transparency with Candid - formerly known as GuideStar!

    This is the second year we've achieved Platinum rating, and six prior years with Gold rating. The Candid Platinum seal is the highest possible rating and indicates that we exceed nonprofit industry standards. This exceptional designation sets us apart and demonstrates our trustworthiness to the public.

    Candid is the world's largest database of nonprofit organizations. It provides donors with the information necessary to make smart decisions. With this 2024 Platinum "Seal of Transparency", you can feel confident your donation is going toward important education and conservation initiatives.

    The seal links directly to our profile on Candid so our supporters can easily see and verify our accomplishments. They complete IRS compliance checkups to make sure nonprofits are up-to-date and are following requirements. Interested grantors and donors can request a Charity Check Report and a Pro Report that provides an excellent summary about us all in one neat bundle.

    It helps knowing you can protect and improve our little neck-of-the woods through a 501(c)(3) tax deductible donation to the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team.
