Statement of Financial Responsibility:
Our philosophy on giving and financial responsibility is based on 1 Chronicles 29:14 (Easy-to-Read version, ERV): “All these things didn’t come from me and my people. All these things come from you. We are only giving back to you things that came from you.”
Therefore, (a) we strive to be faithful stewards and to maintain integrity and openness in our financial practices; (b) we are governed by a responsible Board of Directors, the majority of whom are not staff members or their relatives. Our Board meets to establish policies, approve budgets, and review operational results and ministry accomplishments. It also appoints an executive/finance committee, the majority of whom are not staff members or their relatives, to review the annual audit of our financial records, and report its findings to the Board; (c) we seek to conduct our activities with the highest standards of integrity and to avoid conflicts of interest, and (d) because we believe that it is God’s place to prompt a response to our fund-raising appeals, we avoid high-pressure or manipulative fund-raising tactics.
