In the US, every non-profit has to file an annual financial report on
form 990 or, for small ones, 990-EZ.  These are by law open to public
inspection, and if you call, write, fax or e-mail them and ask for a
copy they better send you one.

The Foundation Center has a fairly good online 990 database:
