...Although the report does not come to any conclusions about whether the current spate of audits are politically motivated, it does find the threat alone has a sinister chilling effect: “The important thing is that the audits themselves – and the mere perception that they may be targeted – are clearly silencing charities that have much to offer society.”

"...some of these issues can torture small and even larger organizations unless they are addressed forthrightly. We do not believe that these problems are ultimately the donor’s issue.
