Annual Revenue

During 2014, we elected to change our fiscal year end from December 31 to September 30. The fiscal year was changed to better monitor the Museum’s revenue cycle and was approved by the Board of Trustees effective January 1, 2014. Our revenue, expenses and 990 forms for 2014 reflect the nine-month period of January 1, 2014 – September 30, 2014.
