Financial Accountability

Heart for Lebanon is governed by and accountable to a responsible Board of Directors that governs by establishing policies and reviewing ministry accomplishments. Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. We seek to conduct our activities with the highest standards of integrity and to avoid conflicts of interest.

Contributions to the ministry are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Audited financial statements are available upon written request to the International office.  If we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need.
