Financial Audit

COS has worked with an independent accounting firm each year to conduct an audit of our financial records, and to prepare statements and disclosures for 20132014201520162017, 2018, and 2019.

COS has been very fortunate to receive increasing sponsorship each subsequent year, and has used these new investments to grow programs and operations in pursuit of our mission. Our community has responded enthusiastically to new tools and services and we are now pursuing strategies to sustain these services as public goods.
