Evaluation Conclusions

              

Reliv Kalogris Foundation (RK ) does not meet the following Standard for Charity Accountability.

Standard 11: Financial Statements - Make available to all, on request, complete annual financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. When total annual gross income exceeds $500,000, these statements should be audited in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. For charities whose annual gross income is less than $500,000, a review by a certified public accountant is sufficient to meet this standard. For charities whose annual gross income is less than $250,000, an internally produced, complete financial statement is sufficient to meet this standard.

This organization does not meet this Standard because its audited financial statements were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

Reliv Kalogris Foundation (RK ) meets the remaining 19 Standards for Charity Accountability.
