Annual Report

annual report

lWe believe in providing the upmost transparency and accuracy with our numbers and metrics of operations. We're also happy to have the pleasure of serving the local Orting Community as a 501c3 Non-Profit. In this section you will find our average stats and non-profit tax information.


The most asked question we get is "How do you obtain your funding". Our primary support in terms of dollars come in a variety of ways such as; local grants, building rental income, fundraising, and community donations. Here at The Haven we are a 100% volunteer based organization.


We also believe in having an open line of communication if anyone should have any questions in regards to these matters. Please feel to reach out through the contact information below and we thank you so much for your interest and support! 

We have a third-party CPA that specializes in non-profits to review our books and file our annual taxes each year to ensure accuracy and to maintain transparency
