Governance and Financial Accountability
Children’s HopeChest is deeply committed to financial integrity and ensuring that our donors’ dollars are carefully managed and leveraged for the most impact possible.
We are a member in good standing of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. In accordance with their standards and principles, we are governed by a Board of Directors. Our board has full fiduciary responsibility for the organization and takes active steps to safeguard our financial, spiritual, and programmatic integrity.
In accordance with best practices, the board has established an Audit Committee to oversee our annual audit and preparation of our IRS Form-990 tax return. Those documents are posted here in PDF format for your review. Some of these files are large, so they may take a few moments to load in your browser.

In January of each year, we will prepare annual reports of giving in the prior year for all donors who contributed $250 or more. The giving reports will be mailed by January 31 each year. Please consult with your tax preparer or accountant to determine the tax-deductible value of your gifts.
