We take seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of the funds entrusted to us. We are accountable to our donors, the recipients of our ministry and God to use them wisely.

We continually strive to keep our overhead low without sacrificing the structures and staff needed to maintain a high level of ministry. We use nearly 85 percent of our total revenue to benefit ministry recipients.

Overhead is only one consideration in choosing a charity to support. Much more important is the charity’s mission and how effectively it accomplishes that mission. Results, impact, efficient management, and fiscal controls all are factors in a mission’s effectiveness. Despite the implied message by Internet rating groups, the most effective charity is not necessarily the one with the lowest overhead rate. A reasonable amount of overhead is needed to achieve ministry objectives.

While we openly share our overhead rate, we recognise that overhead rates alone are inadequate for evaluating a ministry. Accounting practices and the method of delivering programs vary, making an across-the-board comparison based on overhead impossible.

As a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), we adhere to high standards for fund raising and responsible stewardship. Youth for Christ International Ministries' member profile is viewable by clicking here
