Foundation reports are designed to reflect activity within the Foundation's various Fund types and include financial information at various levels of account detail by Fund and Organization. Fund and Organization selections may be made for either an individual Fund or Organization code, or for one of the hierarchical "roll-up" Cost Center, Division, or Department group codes. If a group code is selected, all areas within that group will be reported individually with totals for each division. Any information returned will always be based on authorized Fund/Organization access.
