Many countries demand that charities publish a yearly summary of their finances.
Where I live (Netherlands), charities must publish these statements themselves, and JW do this at JW-anbi.nl. (I'm quite certain almost no JW knows about that site btw.)
Anyway I've been working on automatically harvesting data from all the congregation finance statements to gain more insight in how the Borg is doing over time.
Now it occured to me that I could do this analysis for more countries and get an even bigger picture. A big issue though is that it's not easy to find where these statements are published.
So please help me out by answering these questions:
- Does your country require charities to publish yearly financial statements
- If so, do you know where these are published for JW?
Please don't forget to include what country you're answering for :-)
What I got so far (I'll update once more information comes in):
- The Netherlands: http://JW-anbi.nl
- United Kingdom: http://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Showcharity/RegisterOfCharities/registerhomepage.aspx
