Maintaining Financial Transparency

Since your Evansville Rescue Mission is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, our ministry relies on the generosity of private, tax-deductible donations from a variety of funding sources. We do not receive funding from the federal or state government and are not a United Way agency.

To maintain fiscal responsibility, the Rescue Mission is annually audited by Kemper CPA Group, LLP. For a much more thorough analysis of our finances, you can view our most recent 990 by clicking here.


Your Evansville Rescue Mission is a proud member of the Evangelical Council For Financial Accountability (ECFA), is working toward being highlighted as Better Business Bureau charity, and is recognized as a Certified Mission as a member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM).
