Evaluation Conclusions

              

Faith & Deliverance Home does not meet the following 7 Standards for Charity Accountability.

Standard 1: Oversight of Operations and Staff - Organizations shall have a board of directors that provides adequate oversight of the charity's operations and its staff. Indication of adequate oversight includes, but is not limited to, regularly scheduled appraisals of the CEO's performance, evidence of disbursement controls such as board approval of the budget, fund raising practices, establishment of a conflict of interest policy, and establishment of accounting procedures sufficient to safeguard charity finances.

  • This organization does not meet this Standard because it does not have a board-approved budget.
  • This organization does not meet this Standard because it does not have a board-approved conflict of interest policy.

Standard 3: Frequency and Attendance of Board Meetings - An organization shall have a minimum of three evenly spaced meetings per year of the full governing body with a majority in attendance, with face-to-face participation. A conference call of the full board can substitute for one of the three meetings of the governing body. For all meetings, alternative modes of participation are acceptable for those with physical disabilities.

  • The organization does not meet the meeting frequency provision of this Standard for meetings held in the past fiscal year.

Standard 4: Compensated Board Members - Not more than one or 10% (whichever is greater) directly or indirectly compensated person(s) serving as voting member(s) of the board. Compensated members shall not serve as the board's chair or treasurer.

  • The organization does not meet this Standard since the paid chief executive officer (CEO) also serves as the chair of the board.
  • The organization does not meet this Standard since the treasurer of the board is compensated either directly or indirectly.

Standard 12: Detailed Functional Breakdown of Expenses - Include in the financial statements a breakdown of expenses (e.g., salaries, travel, postage, etc.) that shows what portion of these expenses was allocated to program, fund raising, and administrative activities. If the charity has more than one major program category, the schedule should provide a breakdown for each category.

  • This organization does not meet this Standard because its financial statements did not include a detailed functional breakdown of expenses by natural classification (e.g., salaries, travel, postage, etc.) that shows what portion of these expenses was allocated to program, fund raising, and administrative activities.

Standard 13: Accuracy of Expenses in Financial Statements - Accurately report the charity's expenses, including any joint cost allocations, in its financial statements. For example, audited or unaudited statements which inaccurately claim zero fund raising expenses or otherwise understate the amount a charity spends on fund raising, and/or overstate the amount it spends on programs will not meet this standard.

  • This organization does not meet this Standard because its IRS Form 990-EZ for the fiscal year ended February 6, 2006 reports the organization had no administrative expenses.

Standard 14: Budget - Have a board-approved annual budget for its current fiscal year, outlining projected expenses for major program activities, fund raising, and administration.

  • This organization does not meet this Standard because it states that it does not have a budget for the current fiscal year.

Standard 16: Annual Report - Have an annual report available to all, on request, that includes: (a) the organization's mission statement, (b) a summary of the past year's program service accomplishments, (c) a roster of the officers and members of the board of directors, (d) financial information that includes (i) total income in the past fiscal year, (ii) expenses in the same program, fund raising and administrative categories as in the financial statements, and (iii) ending net assets.

  • The organization does not meet this Standard because it states it does not have an annual report covering activities conducted in the past year.
In addition, the BBB of Chicago & Northern Illinois requested but did not receive complete information on the organization’s finances and is unable to verify the organization's compliance with the following 3Standards for Charity Accountability: 8, 9, and 10.
Faith & Deliverance Home meets the remaining 10 Standards for Charity Accountability.
