Our financial stewardship of charitable gifts
To maintain our program’s Christian principles and independence from government influence, Eagle Ranch Children's Home relies primarily on private donations to support our annual budget. We also accept Memorial and Honor Gift donations and many Employer Matching donation programs. Georgia income tax payers can now receive a dollar-for-dollar education tax credit for contributions to the Eagle Ranch School scholarship fund.
More than 79 percent of charitable contributions goes directly to children’s programs, a percentage that far exceeds the 65 percent standard set under national ethics guidelines for U.S. charities.
Every dollar of donation to Eagle Ranch – a 501(c)(3) organization and member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) – is carefully monitored. Our financial records are audited annually by an independent accounting firm with additional ongoing review by the finance committee of the Eagle Ranch Board of Directors.
Eagle Ranch spends no money on new capital projects (such as construction of a children’s home) until all funding is secured. That means not one penny of contributions ever goes toward interest payments on debt. Here is more information on planned giving and you can also make a charitable donation to Eagle Ranch online.
