Las Trampas supports adults with developmental disabilities to discover their capabilities and to lead full lives in their home, at work, and in the community.


Las Trampas prides itself on fiscal responsibility to assure that services to the people served by the agency will be able to continue far into the future.  As a non-profit serving adults with developmental disabilities, our primary funding source is the Regional Center of the East Bay, which is funded by the California Department of Developmental Services.  Thus, most of our funding is dependent upon State and Federal programs.  With such funding increasingly in question, we rely on donations and community support to bridge the gap between State mandated rates for services and the increased costs of providing quality services.

Our fiscal year starts on July 1st of each year and continues to the following year ending on June 30th to align with the fiscal year of the State of California and our primary funding sources.  Each year, Las Trampas engages an independent auditor to review our financial information and our accounting practices as well as prepare and submit our annual tax return.   This audit usually takes 4 to 5 months to complete after the closure of the fiscal year and information will be updated upon its completion.

Below, you will be able to review key financial information for the most recently ended fiscal year of which an audit has been completed.  In the column to the right, you will find key financial information for prior years.
