The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is a 501(c)(3) organization. All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. 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. Occasionally we receive more contributions for a given project than can wisely be applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need. We do not provide goods or services in consideration for contributions.
BGEA is audited annually by an independent public accounting firm. Descriptions of BGEA’s programs and activities, and its audited financial statements, are available upon request at: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Attention Finance Department, 1 Billy Graham Parkway, Charlotte, NC 28201, or by calling 704-401-2432. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that BGEA has complete control over the use of all donated funds.
Some States require organizations soliciting funds to register with an agency responsible for regulating charities. Several States exempt faith-based, religious organizations from solicitation registration. BGEA is registered where required. For Virginia residents, a financial statement is available upon request from the State Division of Consumer Affairs in the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. West Virginia residents may obtain information by writing the Secretary of State, the State Capitol, Charleston, WV 25305. REGISTRATION WITH A STATE DOES NOT IMPLY ENDORSEMENT, APPROVAL, OR RECOMMENDATION BY SUCH STATE.
BGEA is a charter member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
