Honoring Donors Wishes...
PAAR honors the intentions of donors by spending restricted funds for the expenses that meet the donor-imposed restrictions. The executive director forwards all contracts and restricted grant and contribution letters to the directors of finance and planning & development. All expenses are tracked individually on transmittal sheets and separated into categories. The directors then ensure that restricted revenue and expense transactions are segregated by code when entered into the financial accounting system. Reports are generated by the financial system and sent to each of the different donors per their specific requests. As part of the annual audit, PAAR's independent auditors review all grant and contribution-related correspondence and review the financial transactions to ensure that any restrictions imposed were met.
With the support of the community and people like you, Pittsburgh Action Against Rape is able to provide counseling to victims of sexual violence, and educate the community to prevent sexual violence. Thank you for donating to PAAR.
