Our commitment is to you…our NSDA community.

As a non-profit organization, we appreciate the support of every donor and provide this information to ensure that we are operating with transpancery. The NSDA fiscal year runs April 1 thru March 31. Our financial statements are audited by an independent auditing firm each year and the 990 tax return prepared prior to the annual NSDA Board of Directors meeting in early May. The previous year’s audited financials and/or tax returns are available upon request by emailing NSDA@dysphonia.org.

At this time 87% of the donations received are used to fund programs of research, education, awareness, and support for spasmodic dysphonia and related voice disorders.

The NSDA has been awarded the Gold Seal of Transparency by Guidestar.org, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations.

Charity Navigator rates nonprofits based on the amount of money they spend on management and general expenses and the threshold for their rating is revenue of $1 million dollars or more. At this time the NSDA does not qualify for an official rating, however, if an organization’s spending is between 10% to 15% it receives the top score of 10. The NSDA is currently at 13% for these expenses.
