We desire to maintain the highest level of financial accountability and transparency. Although we are essentially a network of small churches, we chose to incorporate and operate our finances as a 501c3 nonprofit because of the higher level of accountability and transparency required by that status. To review our Cost Allocation Report of administrative, fundraising, and program costs, and to examine our line by line expenses, please click on the respective links below.
Because Wildfire Network exists to serve missions and mission leaders, We organize our general budget according to the service platforms that we provide. Our financial model is dependent on the generosity of God's people to give towards the general budget, by staff support fundraising, and by keeping our costs and expenses as low as possible.
