Organizational Documents

COS is governed by board-adopted by-laws. View our Financial Conflict of Interest Policy.

Our 501(c)(3) status allows for charitable contributions to be tax deductible.


Form 990s

Our annual tax returns (990) for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.


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 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.

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.
