Many States require charities soliciting funds within a State to register with the State agency responsible for regulating charities. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is registered in each State where it is required to do so. As a religious organization, several States exempt our ministry from solicitation registration.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is a 501(c)(3) organization, and all gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is audited annually by an independent public accounting firm, and our audited financial statements are available upon request at: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, 1 Billy Graham Parkway, Charlotte, NC 28201, Attention Finance Department, or by calling 704-401-2432. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has complete control over the use of all donated funds. Our board approved policy is that all gifts designated for a specific project be applied to the project with up to 10% used for administrative and fund-raising expenses.
