The Form 990 is a key document for learning relevant financial information about any nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status. All organizations granted tax-free status must submit this form annually.
A Form 990 will include financial statements, information about significant employees of the organization, and disclosure of conflicts of interest.
Searching for newspaper, magazine, and trade publication articles are a great way to find information about the nonprofit organization you are applying to. This information can be used in crafting a custom cover letter or to brainstorm questions to ask during an interview. The better informed you are about a business, the more interested you will appear to prospective employers.
