- Assets first rise and then decline annually because this is a 501(c)(3) public benefit charity, not a foundation. Foundations accumulate assets in order to periodically disgorge the earnings. Charities passed them through to their beneficiaries via their programs. When a charity's assets rise it means good people and good companies are moving assets into the Organization to be used for its programs. When the charity's assets decline it shows they are being moved into the programs benefiting the Organization's beneficiaries in the ratios shown.
