I have collated reports published by EA organizations from 13 September 2013 to 12 March 2014. I commend all of these organizations on their transparency and quote Holden Karnofsky:

I believe that nonprofits sometimes mimic for-profits in ways that don’t make sense given their missions... They keep information confidential rather than publishing it as a public good. And they exaggerate successes and downplay shortcomings, while being more honest would help the rest of the world learn and thus ultimately promote their mission (if not their organization).

This post begins with some highlights from the activities of EA organizations and concludes with a list of links to their reports.
