Jews for Jesus is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We trust God for the funding of Jews for Jesus, and He has provided through caring Christians. Each missionary raises his or her own support. We ask our Christian friends to support their local churches first. Then we ask people to prayerfully consider giving to our ministry as well. We welcome the support of all Christians, though we particularly appreciate those who include our ministry in their regular missions giving. For those wishing to support our work, we have provided a secure online donation page here.
The Jews for Jesus work year is based on the Jewish calendar, which begins in early fall. Our fiscal year is January 1-December 31. We issue tax deductible receipts for each donation, or individuals may request to have a single receipt for all their gifts issued at the end of each year.
The two charts below describe the sources of our Jews for Jesus support and how that income is spent. While these charts were calculated according to United States figures, they are generally applicable to our work around the world.
Accountability: We are governed by a board of directors that meets quarterly. We have a U.S. board, as well as Canadian, South African and European boards of directors.
The executive director is advised by the Jews for Jesus Council, consisting of nine senior missionaries, elected by their peers. They discuss and vote upon strategy and personnel.
We are charter members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability and are also members of the Interdenominational Foreign Mission Association, both of which hold high standards for financial integrity (more Associations and Memberships).
Any Jews for Jesus contributor can request our last audited financial statement. An independent auditing firm of certified public accountants, Eckhoff Accountancy of San Rafael, California, conducts our yearly audit. We usually receive our audit in the month of May.
