Yes we're broke
Comfort Canines for Christ is a 501(c)(3) charitable ministry. All donations are tax deductible. Initial operating costs and approximately 90% of the first three years expenses of Comfort Canines for Christ were personally absorbed by the directors. However, as the ministry has become better known, requests for services have surged well beyond current funding and personnel capabilities. Disaster relief response alone is a tremendous fiscal strain. To meet demands Comfort Canines for Christ is actively recruiting more canine and handler teams as well as additional proportional funding. Bringing a canine up to therapy dog standards entails two years of training and socialization. Purchasing a fully trained therapy dog would cost approximately $15,000, but Comfort Canines For Christ avoids this expense by training our own dogs. Based on three years of operations the annual overall cost for a canine in service is roughly $5,000.
“It’s About Stewardship”
Comfort Canines for Christ's fiscal policy is based upon a single verse from the Bible:
Titus 1:7 - For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach.
Our practice within financial decisions is “must be above even the appearance of giving rise to reproach.” All donations are utilized in the continuing desire to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Our bylaws specify that no board members or volunteers will receive any compensation or financially benefit from their work with Comfort Canines for Christ. All donations will be handled with biblical principles of stewardship.
