The Society of St. Andrew seeks continually to merit the trust and respect of the general public and to ensure that our donors can have full confidence in us.
Significantly more than 90% of each donated dollar goes to our programs that feed the hungry. Less than ten percent goes toward fundraising and administration. For comparison, the American Institute of Philanthropy, a national charity watchdog service, will give a high grade to charities that spend as much as 25% on raising money.
We are incorporated as “The Society of Saint Andrew,”a 501(c)3 tax exempt, nonprofit corporation. We are recognized as an Advance Special mission project of the United Methodist Church (#801600). We also meet the requirements to be included in the annual Combined Federal Campaign.
Each year we are independently audited and will gladly disclose detailed financial records on request.
