Annual Report & Financials

Building a global community and demonstrating unparalleled financial stewardship summarizes our Fiscal Year 2018. Together, we are raising a generation of young people who will go on to make our businesses healthier, our global economy stronger, and our society more resilient. This Report summarizes over a decade of data and research showing that exposing kids to fun, hands-on FIRST programs greatly increases their motivation to seek education and careers in STEM fields. In terms of financial stewardship, FIRST achieved its 13th consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator, certifying our continued commitment to accountability, transparency, and sound fiscal management. This places FIRST in the top one percent of all U.S. charities evaluated by Charity Navigator. Learn more about our impact and stewardship from our 2018 Annual Impact Report and our FIRST Audited Financials below.
