Standards of Accountability

We are committed to these standards of accountability:
We are governed by a responsible Board of Directors, who are not staff members or their relatives. Our Board meets at least four times annually to establish policies, set budgets, oversee operations, and review ministry accomplishments.

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. We obtain an annual audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards by an independent public accounting firm. Copies of our current audited financial statements are made available online.

Our fund-raising appeals clearly identify the purpose and programs to which donations will be applied, and we ensure that donations are used for the purposes for which they were raised. Our Board has directed that all contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to ten percent to be used for administering the gift. Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need. Contributions to the ministry are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Out of respect for individuals’ privacy, we do not sell or rent our mailing list to other groups wishing to use the names and addresses of our supporters. We maintain tight security on our list of friends and supporters.
