ELPC’s financial support is diverse and growing. Our annual revenues of about $6 million are raised from more than 165 foundation and individual major donors (> $1,000) and many supportive members across the Midwest. We appreciate and value the support of all of ELPC’s donors, who help enable our successful advocacy to improve environmental quality and advance economic development.
ELPC Receives Clean Audits Every Year
We don’t take that as a given, and neither should you. Clean audit opinions from independent auditors confirm that ELPC is managing our finances and accounting properly. We think that this is important, and we expect that our donors do as well. You may download our most recent audit (FY2017). ELPC’s current and prior 990 tax forms and fiscal data can be found online with Guidestar.
