NEW GAS REPORT….. UPDATE YOUR FILES (follow link)
A new version of the Gaming Account Summary Report has been published. The changes to the form were in Section 9 – Community Benefit where the language has been updated to help us measure recipients’ performances. Specifically, we’re hoping that more organizations provide a better summary of their year-end community benefit, including statistics on number of participants, events, hours etc. These sections are generally poorly done, which does not allow us to promote the benefits of the program as much as we’d like.
Most organizations will access the new GASR online. Some organizations may have an old copy saved on their computer. There will not be a punishment for using the old form, but we’re hoping the new one will be widely used within a year.
