All gifts to Answers in Genesis, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Gifts given to a specific program will be used for that program unless we receive more contributions than can wisely be used for that program.
Answers in Genesis recognizes that financial integrity is foremost in a ministry as it uses supporters’ donations wisely. For this reason, AiG has sought to maintain the highest standard when it comes to our financial affairs, stewardship, and accountability. Below are a few of the actions that AiG has taken to achieve this goal:
Answers in Genesis is an accredited charity of (BBB®). The overarching principle of the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability is full disclosure to donors and potential donors at the time of solicitation and thereafter. However, where indicated, the standards recommend ethical practices beyond the act of disclosure in order to ensure public confidence and encourage giving. As voluntary standards, they also go beyond the requirements of local, state, and federal laws and regulations.
Your BBB also encourages charities to maintain an organizational commitment to accountability that transcends specific standards and places a priority on openness and ethical behavior in the charity's programs and activities.
