Annual Reports and Financials
At Rescue:Freedom International, we take great care to ensure the funds our donors entrust us with are used with the greatest effectiveness and efficiency. We make sure every dollar is stretched as far as it can be to help restore lives broken by sexual slavery.
You won’t find elaborate expense accounts or fancy lunch buffets around here. We use economical office space (that was funded by a generous donor), fly coach (though we take free upgrades when we get them), and work hard to utilize our passionate and skilled volunteers. We ask people to make sacrifices to help end the atrocities that we see every day and we believe that we have to make those sacrifices too.
We have a highly engaged board of directors with great diversity of backgrounds and expertise. These skilled professionals approve our budget and review the financial records and procedures of RFI on a quarterly basis. The RFI board has a great heart for the work that we do and take pride in ensuring that donated funds have the maximum impact for the people we exist to serve.
Clark Nuber PS serves as our accounting firm, and they are one of the most respected in the industry (Bowman’s Accounting Report and Inside Public Accounting have selected Clark Nuber as one of the top 25 accounting firms in America for 7 of the past 14 years). Clark Nuber accountants thoroughly review R:FI finances and procedures as they prepare our form 990 and carefully review our financial statements as part of this process. Clark Nuber is particularly well known for their expertise in non-profit accounting and the Northwest’s most respected non-profit organizations turn to them for their tax, audit, accounting, and consulting needs.
We work very hard to keep our operating costs low. Over this past year, 80% of our expenses went to programs that directly helped restore those rescued from sexual slavery. We are thrilled to see this number increase each year as we find more ways to drive funds directly into programs.
Rescue:Freedom International is not only an industry leader in the work of restoring the lives of those broken by sexual slavery, we also do it efficiently and effectively. You can donate with confidence that your funds will be stewarded wisely and carefully to have the maximum impact in the very lives of the women and children we serve!
