Company Websites

Google Web Search

Often you can find financial data (including annual reports) online on the company website.  However, it's not usually found on the public-facing web page, which is usually intended for sales.  Search for your company's website and see if you find a link that says something like Inc., Investors or Investor Relations, Company Information, or Corporate Information; if your company is nonprofit, check for the label About Us.  This link is usually somewhere in the footer of the public website (or sometimes in the header or left-side navigation) and will take you to the website for the company's shareholders or donors.
