Gifts Handled with Care

At ICF, we are committed to being good stewards of our talents and our resources. We take our responsibility as a Christian charity very seriously and work diligently to identify the most efficient and cost effective means of delivering help to those in greatest need.

For more than 35 years we have earned the trust of tens of thousands of caring donors. They support ICF because of the good work we do and the highly efficient, cost effective manner in which we do it. Noteworthy are our:

  • Low-overhead Costs — Virtually all ICF staff members volunteer their time without compensation, resulting in fundraising and administrative costs during 2016-2017 of less than 2% of total contributions.
  • Local Indigenous Ministers — by working through local Christian missionaries we make certain that resources move directly to those in greatest need, with minimal loss due to transport, logistics, theft and graft.

Because of our financial strength and efficient operation, Charity Navigator, a premier watchdog agency, awarded us with a three-star rating for the 2016-17 fiscal year.  The Charity Navigator 2.1 launch included the following changes to the methodology:

  • Averaging 3 most recent 990s for most ratios
  • Applying a conversion scale to the program expense ratio making it possible for charities to receive a full 10 points in that metric
  • Removing the revenue growth metric
  • Adding a metric measuring a charity’s total liabilities to total assets

In addition to its efficiency, ICF is committed to maintaining a high standard of financial reporting and transparency. We are audited annually by the accounting firm of Wipfli CPAs and Consultants.  They are one of the top accounting firms and a leading provider of tax, audit and accounting services solutions, and business consulting in the US.  (current info is available at the links below.)
