Thank you for your help, Robin. I visited your website and started to
update the profile for Friends of Dragon Run. I saw that you've picked up
our 2016 Form 990, and now we're being asked to post the 2017 Form 990.
But we haven't been able to file that yet. We are a very small
organization, and our volunteer accountant who prepares that for us
encountered health issues this year, so he filed for an extension until
November 2018, which was approved by the IRS. Can Guidestar flag our
profile that says the IRS gave us an extension to file our 2017 Form 990?
In the meantime, I have the financial statements from our Treasurer that he
provides to our accountant. I started to enter that information, but I
don't understand your expense categories, so I couldn't finish it. Can you
explain where I can find the definitions of "program expenses" and
"administration expenses"? Thanks so much.
Janice Moore, President

Program expenses would be defined as all monies dedicated to your organization's programs. Administration expenses could be broken down into two categories: direct and indirect.
Direct expenses are those which can be specifically identified with a particular activity and include compensation and travel expenses of employees and officers; the cost of materials and supplies; and fees paid to outside firms and individuals.
Indirect (overhead) expenses are not specifically identifiable with a particular activity. They relate to the direct costs incurred in conducting the activity. Examples of indirect expenses are occupying expenses (except depreciation), supervisory and clerical compensation, repair, rental and maintenance of equipment, expenses of other departments, such as accounting, personnel, and payroll that serve the department or function that incurs the direct expenses of conducting an exempt activity.
