Financial Accountability

Our pledge to you

InterVarsity/USA maintains the highest standards of financial integrity in all our business dealings. We hold the highest possible rating (4-stars) from Charity Navigator for accountability and transparency, and for sound fiscal management. InterVarsity is also a charter member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). The ECFA is an accreditation agency for leading Christian non-profit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, fundraising, and board governance. 

It is our pledge to you to maintain the highest ethical standards of financial accountability and reporting consistent with responsible Christian faith and practice.  In order to maintain your trust and support, an independent audit of our financial records is conducted annually.  A free copy of that audit is available here or by writing to:  InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, Accounting Services, PO Box 7895, Madison, WI 53707-7895.

InterVarsity is a tax exempt nonprofit organization under 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. We are also classified as a public charity under Section 509(a)(2) of the Code. We are qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the Code.

According to IRS guidelines, InterVarsity/USA must maintain sole control and discretion over the use of the funds once a tax-deductible receipt is issued. Tax deductible gifts are non-refundable. In the event that changes occur in InterVarsity staff, ministries or projects, all tax-deductible gifts remain non-refundable.
