Financial accountability

Donations are much more than dollars and cents. They're a sign that the one who gives them:

  • Cares about those in greatest need.
  • Believes that together with God we can rekindle hope in broken hearts.
  • Trusts in our stewardship.

We take this seriously. That's why you can trust that we'll use every dollar to achieve the greatest impact.

Our pledge to you:

Your information will be kept private:
We'll never sell, rent or divulge any of your personal information to another organization or individual, except as required by law. Read our complete privacy policy.

Your gift will be spent wisely:
We've developed a lean and efficient staffing structure so your gift will have the greatest impact possible.

You'll receive your receipt promptly:
We'll promptly receipt all donations and personally acknowledge your generosity.
