COMMITTEE TO SAVE NEW YORK, INC. NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS December 31, 2011 NOTE 1 NATURE OF ORGANIZATION: Committee to Save New York, Inc, ("CSNY") is a 501(c)(4) Not-far-Profit Organization created for the purpose of promoting and maintaining sound fiscal planning in the New York state government Contributions are used to fund public awareness campaigns through grassroots and direct lobbying efforts with respect to issues important to New Yorkers. NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES: BaSis of Accounting The financial statements of CSNY have been prepared on the accrual basis in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Basis of Presentation All financial transactions have been recorded and reported as either unrestricted or temporarily restricted net assets: Unrestricted net assets consist of investments and otherwise unrestricted amounts that are available for use in carrying out the objectives of CSNY, Temporarily restricted net assets represent those amounts which are donor restricted for specific purposes. When a donor restriction expires, that is, when a stipulated time restriction ends or a purpose restriction is accomplished, temporarily restricted net assets are reclassified to unrestricted net assets and reported on the statement of activities as net assets released from restriction. Permanently restricted net assets result from contributions from donors who place restrictions on the use of the funds which mandate that the original principal be invested in perpetuity. This original principal is reported as a permanently restricted net asset, the income from which may either be temporarily restricted or unrestricted, depending on the donor's specifications. In the absence of donor restriction, contributions and bequests are considered to be available for unrestricted use. All unconditional income is recognized in the period when the contribution, pledge, or unconditional promise to give is received. CSNY records donor-restricted contributions whose restrictions are met in the same reporting period as unrestricted support. Cash and Cash Equivalents CSNY has adopted the indirect method of presenting the statement of cash flows. All highly liquid investment instruments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase are considered to be cash equivalents for the purpose of the statement of cash flows,

COMMITTEE TO SAVE NEW YORK, INC. NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS December 31, 2011 NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED): Income Taxes CSNY is a tax-exempt organization under existing provisions of the Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(4), and its related income is not subject to federal, state or local income taxes. CSNY recognizes the effect of income tax positions only if they are more likely than not to be sustained. Management has determined that CSNY had no uncertain tax positions that would require financial statement recognition or disclosure. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates. Advertising Costs Advertising costs are charged to operations when incurred. Concentration of Credit Risk CSNY's financial instruments that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash. Cash balances are held with various financial institutions, which are evaluated periodically by management to minimize the risk associated with the balances. NOTE 3 RELATED PARTY: Tishman Speyer Properties, LP ("Tishman Speyer") was deemed to be a "related party" from the formation of CSNY until January 3, 2011, because the three governing members of CSNY were all employed by Tishman Speyer during that period. Effective January 3, 2011, prior to any operational activities by CSNY, two board members employed by Tishman Speyer were replaced by two unrelated individuals, as a result of which Tishman Speyer was and is no longer a related party of CSNY. NOTE 4 GOING CONCERN: The members of CSNY expect to continue to receive contribution revenues in pursuit of its objectives. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if CSNY is unable to raise adequate contributions for their objectives. NOTE 5 SUBSEQUENT EVENTS: Subseq uent events have been evaluated throu gh May 11, 2012, the date the financial statements were issued. No events have occurred subsequent to the statement of financial position date and through the date of issuance that would require adjustment to or disclosure in the accompanying financial statements.
