FFI Charter Clubs Annual Report

FFI Charter Clubs

Welcome FFI Charter Clubs!  Thank you for being a vital part of FFI and its mission - you are our feet in the streams!  This page is has all the information you need to file the annual report for your club. If you don't see what you are looking for contact or call 406-222-9369 Ext 2.

Annual Report

Welcome to your guide to completing the annual report.  Clubs are required to upload all necessary forms to the report. 


Do you submit the online report for a 990N or for the Group Return? Review the 990N Cheat Sheet and Annual Report Instructions document to determine.

If you choose to file your own 990N, you are STILL REQUIRED to provide financial reporting to FFI and complete the Annual Report Form.


  1. READ THROUGH AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION/CHEAT SHEET DOCUMENTS to prepare!  ALL DOCUMENTS ARE IN THE LINKS BELOW.  Do not try to rush through the report process and have everything prepared before clicking the Online Report Form link.
  2. Get all your documents prepared and saved to your computer so they will be ready to upload where indicated in the online form.  Some people find it helpful to also print them to follow along. 
    About the documents:
    • Review the Instruction document first.
    • Review the applicable cheat sheet(s).
    • Make sure you have a reconciled year-end bank statement.
    • The "BoardMbrList_IRS-Report_UploadDoc".  This is a required document for those submitting the Group Return that you will upload where indicated in the online report form (this is NOT the same as updating your FFI profile).  
  3. There is a single link to the ONLINE REPORT FORM that will guide you through the necessary steps to complete the annual report. 
  4. Please do not go to the link until you are ready.  There is no time limit to complete the online form, but once you start, you need to complete it through the final "Submit" button. If you exit, you will not be able to go back to it later and you will have to resubmit everything again.  You can use the previous page and next page buttons without losing info.
  5. At the end, you must click the "Submit" button to complete the report, (you will follow the "Report Completion Instructions" provided).
  6. Update your club profile (use the "Council-Club-Info_Worksheet" to prepare, instruction tutorial link below). This is not part of the online report form but a separate step to update your information and must be done on an annual basis as well as when any club information changes.  You need to login as the Club to make these updates.  Tutorial, worksheet, and login link below.
