We strive to be transparent in the use of the donations entrusted to us. We have provided links to our latest 2014 990 filing, our 2013 990 Report and our 2013 Audit Report. In addition, we offer this additional information on how we handle Miracles in Action income:
- 100% of donations go directly to projects in Guatemala. Administrative overhead in the U.S. is funded through two “angel donors” and from handicraft sales profits.
- Donations made to specific projects or program areas (backpacks, stoves, water filters, schools, etc.) are restricted to projects in the designated area.
Handicrafts – handicraft sales income is used in a variety of ways:
- Payment to the artisans in Guatemala who depend on this income to provide for their families
- Funding for additional support for these artisans, such as holiday food baskets, school supplies for their children, water filters, etc.
- Other projects in Guatemala — used where needed most
- A portion is used to cover handicraft sales expenses and other unfunded U.S. operating expenses.
