God is the One who meets all our needs (Phil 4:19)
So we seek to present the needs of the ministry openly and honestly to God's people and then trust the Holy Spirit to touch the hearts of those whom He wants to participate in meeting those needs. When donors respond we recognize our accountability both to God and to our donors.
We have a responsibility to be faithful stewards and to maintain integrity and openness in our financial practices.
Spending of funds is confined to board approved programs and projects. Each restricted contribution toward a board approved program or project will be used as designated, with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the board, the remaining restricted contributions designated for such program or project will be used where needed most.

We hold ourselves accountable to Christ, to governing authorities, to CCCC, to donors, and to the public.
We agree to provide a copy of our most recent audited financial statements to anyone who requests them.
We follow a commitment to excellence in resource management, donor relationships, program evaluation, and governance.
We recognize that our donors are people. We commit to respecting the interests and dignity of the donor in every interaction.
We will welcome your questions, respect your complaints, and provide prompt answers.
