Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organisation providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organisation serves the Church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Financial Accountability

We believe that all we have comes from God and we give it out of His hand (1 Chronicles 29:14b, Dutch paraphrase).

We have a responsibility to be faithful stewards and to maintain integrity and openness in our financial practices. Therefore, we are committed to fulfilling sound, Biblical standards.

We present needs to God’s people, then trust the Holy Spirit to touch the hearts of those whom He wants to participate in meeting those needs.

2023 Trustees' Report & Financial Statements


Highest of Standards

Because the Lord supplies us with resources for ministry through individual contributions, we recognise our accountability both to Him and to our donors. We have a responsibility to be faithful stewards and to maintain integrity and openness in our financial practices. Therefore, we are committed to fulfilling the following standards:

  • We subscribe to a written statement of faith clearly affirming our commitment to the evangelical Christian doctrine. Advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the singular objective of our financial conduct.
  • We are governed by a responsible Board of Directors, none of whom are staff members or their relatives. Our Board meets to establish policies, approve budgets, and review operational results and ministry accomplishments.
  • Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. We obtain an annual audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards by an independent accounting firm, Mazars LLP. Copies of our current audited financial statements are available upon request or can be downloaded from this website (see links above).
  • Our Board appoints an audit committee to review the annual audit and report its findings to the Board.
  • We seek to conduct our activities with the highest standards of integrity and to avoid conflicts of interest. Because we believe that it is God’s place to prompt a response to our fund-raising appeals, we shun high-pressure or manipulative fund-raising tactics.

Purpose in Every Expense

Our fund-raising appeals clearly identify the purpose and programmes to which donations will be applied, and we ensure that donations are used for the purposes for which they were raised. Our Board has directed that all contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to 10 percent to be used for administering the gift. Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need. Our policy is to meet the needs God lays before us, so that Christ is lifted up and the Gospel advanced.

We will not operate this ministry with indebtedness that dishonours the cause of Christ and hinders the work of the Gospel. When we make a purchase, we pay the approved invoice within 30 days. We do not intend to use the vendor’s money. While we may occasionally borrow funds for capital expenditures, we promptly repay those loans.

Out of respect for individuals’ privacy, we do not sell or rent our mailing list to other groups wishing to use the names and addresses of our supporters. We maintain tight security on our list of friends and supporters.
