The IRS Form 990 is titled "Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax." It is submitted by tax-exempt organizations to provide the IRS with annual financial information. The Form 990 also provides the public with information about organizations that serve their community and offers donors an opportunity to gauge an organization's stability and credibility.

AVRE and FVRE are committed to upholding the Donor Bill of Rights and we strongly urge donors and potential donors to be prudent when investing in any organization.
