We remain committed to the careful stewardship of all that is entrusted to us: from the boys and girls we serve to the contributions of faithful supporters. Children are the priority at Eagle Ranch, and we believe that excellence of our business operations is crucial to their care; therefore, we are committed to a debt-free status and financial independence.
We have remained debt-free since our inception and no loans or financing have ever been used to acquire land or pay for construction. No money ever goes toward paying interest on debt. To maintain Christian principles and independence from government influence, our annual budget is funded solely through only private donations.
Each year, the budget process is started from scratch, with all expenses reviewed before the annual budget is approved. Eagle Ranch is accredited through the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), which provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations. In addition to the oversight of the ECFA, Eagle Ranch’s financial records are audited annually by an independent accounting firm, and the Finance Committee of the Eagle Ranch Board of Directors provides ongoing financial oversight.
- We accept children regardless of economic status, making our program accessible to many low-to-moderate income families who might not otherwise be able to afford the types of services provided by Eagle Ranch.
- Eagle Ranch receives no government funding and has been entirely debt-free since inception.
- Over half of our program and operational revenue comes from individuals; the other half comes from foundations, businesses, churches and civic clubs.
- Our strong financial standing has earned Eagle Ranch a top (4-star) rating with Charity Navigator for three consecutive years, as well as accreditation by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
