Notes to the Financial Statements
Note 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
A.

Nature of Organization

SAE Foundation (the Foundation) is organized as a division of SAE International (SAE),
a not-for-profit organization incorporated under the laws of Pennsylvania. The Foundation
was created to facilitate financial contributions from members and others to provide an
additional source of income, beyond those sources normally available to SAE, for activities
in support of SAE's purpose, missions and goals. The Foundation operates under the
direction of a Board of Trustees, with administrative support provided by SAE, and reports
directly to the SAE Board of Directors. The Internal Revenue Service has granted SAE taxexempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and SAE is not a
private foundation under Section 509(a)(1). As a division of SAE, the activities of the
Foundation are included in SAE's Form 990.
SAE Foundation Canada is organized as a separate entity under the laws of Canada. It
was formed to manage the activities, missions and goals in support of SAE in Canada,
which requires SAE Foundation Canada's solicitation and receipt of specific funding from
individuals, public or private corporations, foundations, or government agencies. SAE
Foundation Canada operates under the direction of a Board of Directors. The relationship
between the Foundation and SAE Foundation Canada does not meet the criteria requiring
consolidation in the accompanying financial statements.
B.

Basis of Accounting

The accompanying financial statements are prepared on the accrual basis of accounting
in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
Net asset classifications and changes in each of those classes are reported in the financial
statements, and detailed information regarding the purpose of temporarily and permanently
restricted net assets are disclosed in Note 6.
C.

Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates
and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets
and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the
financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the
reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
