Our Finances

We are committed to financial integrity. We know that every dollar given to us is because someone wants to help a child in Nicaragua. Maximizing the stewardship of gifts entrusted to us is an extremely high priority. In 2016, 87% of every dollar invested in our ministry went to our work in Nicaragua. 

The following steps ensure our transparency:

  • We are an established 501(c)(3) with ECFA Accreditation (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability).
  • We are recognized as an official NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) in Nicaragua.
  • The Nicaraguan Government audits the accounting of our Nicaraguan office – the first audit was performed in 2013 and we received a score of 100%!
  • We are guided by an independent Board of Directors with measures in place to ensure financial transparency and integrity.
  • We work closely with our partner churches and organizations both in the United States and in Nicaragua.
  • We work with each Nicaraguan partner to plan and develop their annual operating and capital budgets.
  • We receive and review regular financial statements from each orphanage and Local Church Initiative to ensure spending is consistent with their budgets.
  • We are members of the Christian Alliance for Orphans.
  • We are a 4-star Charity on Charity Navigator
  • We are listed on Guide Star and our Form 990 is available to the public.
