Association Finances

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, SLA annually submits IRS Form 990, which describes the association’s finances and activities for the previous year. You can find a copy of the most recently filed Form 990 here and the 990-T here. You can also examine earlier 990 submissions from Websites such as the Foundation Center.

In addition, the SLA treasurer reports on the association’s finances each year at the annual business meeting. These presentations are available afterward to SLA members (requires member login). Please note that the text comments for some presentations have accompanying slides that are available from a link on the same page. Here are links to the most recent reports by the SLA treasurer:

SLA members may also request the annual financial statements prepared by our auditors, which serve as the basis for our Form 990 filings. These statements are available by request to any SLA member who agrees to sign a confidentiality pledge that the statements will not be redistributed nor the information transmitted in any way. This arrangement allows SLA members to obtain any financial information they wish, while protecting the commercial interests of the association. SLA members should download a copy of the confidentiality agreement, sign it, and return it to:
