2014 NOTE - with changes caused by the Andy Blair tragedy (see Shocker) as well as SMA grantees' resultant reduced compliance with our Transparency and Continuity requirements, it now appears that we will NOT be making perpetual distributions to SMA grantees that require any future reporting.  Instead we expect to issue one-time cash grants in accordance with the explanations on our allocations webpage.   As a result, some of the below information may now be no longer applicable.

Use the below ENDOWMENT TEMPLATE for your annual report of beginning of year Endowment assets (use previous year's "end of year" information as a starting "beginning" point), enter all of the year's transactions that reconcile the individual beginning valuations with the ending valuations that occurred during the year, and then create the mathematically-proved (AND consistent with actual physical presence in the Endowment account labeled appropriately) listing of end of year assets.   Refer to the webpage how to do it for examples of how to both do this AND handle mergers, splits, purchases, sales, etc.  

Preparation notes:  If necessary, additional blank lines may be added or unnecessary lines deleted.  The below table is only a TEMPLATE which should be used for COPYING and then filled in and sent.

The below statements form the "Report of the Endowment Assets" for the (insert name of San Miguel organization) for the 12-months ended ____/____/20__)  It should probably best be prepared on a spreadsheet whose format can be re-used when copied from year to year.

We certify that these assets are kept physically segregated from all other assets and are kept in a completely separate brokerage account at _______________(insert name, address) _____________ (the brokerage statements for all of the year's transactions as well as the end of year statement are also attached).   This statement has been prepared by _________insert name, position)____________ and was completed on ____date____.  Both the physical presence and the mathematical accuracy of the below information was verified by _____(name, position)______.  The reconciliation of the beginning valuation to the ending valuation is at the bottom.
