Global Scholars is committed to maintaining the highest standards of financial accountability and integrity. These standards make it possible to put more of your resources to work impacting the lives of students worldwide.

Our standards are made clear through many third parties including:

  • Global Scholars has been a member in good standing of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) since 1989.
  • Global Scholars earned the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information, which was earned through providing extensive information about our organization including, in-depth financial information, quantitative information about our goals, strategies, and progress towards our mission.
  • We are audited annually by RubinBrown LLC, an independent accounting agency.

Global Scholars is governed by a qualified Board of Directors who meet regularly to establish policies that enable the organization to fulfill its purpose responsibly and with integrity.

Global Scholars has no debt. We do not borrow money but trust in God’s provision to accomplish His will. We realize that our donors give freely out of their own means, often sacrificially. We honor this by maintaining a record of careful stewardship of the funds that God supplies through our donors. We honor the donor’s preference for the use of gifts for specific projects and professors as much as possible while maintaining prayerful control of all gifts in accordance with the ministry purposes of the organization and IRS regulations. In the event that a project becomes fully funded, remaining funds will be used for a similar project if at all possible. A small percentage of each gift is used for the administration of the project.

As a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, contributions to the ministry are tax- deductible to the full extent allowable by law.
