Rural Neighborhoods is deeply committed to good stewardship because every resource entrusted to us can change the lives of the working families we serve.
Our volunteer board and management carefully monitor and review programs and costs, use donations, grants, debt and equity capital for their intended purposes and look for ways to leverage funds for maximum impact. Our integrity and effectiveness has earned the trust and support of many donors, corporations, institutions and government agencies.
We are deeply committed to limiting overhead cost. For each of the past three fiscal years less than 20 percent of every dollar spent was used for management and fundraising costs and more than 80 percent of every dollar spent was invested in actions that help people in need.
The organization has a comprehensive budget which includes all sources and uses of funds for all aspects of operation. The board of directors and its committees authorize the annual budget with their detailed understanding. The board of directors play a significant role in directing unrestricted funds.
We encourage you to investigate before you donate. If you have any questions, we’d love to answer them. CONTACT US.
We are committed to be 100% financially transparent. Our financial documents below are available for download. These include Rural Neighborhoods’ Audited Financial Statements and IRS Form 990.
