FINANCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY

Our Accountability to You

We believe in trusting God to meet our needs while honestly sharing opportunities to help with our friends. We promise never to treat our friends as “cash machines.” Instead, we want to add real meaning and value to the lives of men.

Since 1994, Promise Keepers has been a member in good standing of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. We firmly hold to ECFA’s Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship.

When Coach McCartney blessed Ken Harrison with the mantle to lead Promise Keepers, Ken’s first question was, “Why me, Lord?” In the first month of giving after he took leadership, Ken noticed envelopes full of change or stuffed with a single dollar bill coming in. In fact, the average gift was $3.40. Promise Keepers staff began calling long-time givers to ask their stories. We spoke to many people who were sacrificially giving out of the little they had. Each had a story about how the Lord had used Promise Keeper’s to change their lives.

One woman, who had given $5 per month for over 20 years, said that after her husband came back from a PK event, he was so utterly transformed as a man that she committed to giving every penny she could to Promise Keepers for the rest of her life. “I hope you aren’t calling to ask for more money,” she said, “I’m giving everything I have.”

It was at that moment that Ken Harrison committed to take no pay from Promise Keepers. “Every dollar that comes into this ministry is someone’s sacrificial giving,” he said. “They could have given it to feed the poor, or fight disease. They chose to give it to Promise Keepers and will honor that choice by being extremely careful with the money they entrusted to us. We will be accountable for every cent we spend as people who must give a report to our Father for what he has given us.”
