OUR PLEDGE OF FINANCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY:

Mars Hill Broadcasting Co. Inc. is a listener supported Christian broadcasting ministry, dedicated to the spread of the Biblical message of God’s love and redemption. We are a New York State non-profit corporation located at 4044 Makyes Road, Syracuse, NY 13215. Mars Hill Broadcasting Co. Inc. has been classified as taxexempt under section 501(c (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Gifts to the Mars Hill Broadcasting Co. Inc. are deductible as charitable contributions for Federal income tax purposes. Mars Hill Broadcasting Co. Inc is a member in good standing of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability(ECFA) www.ecfa.org. As such, we are in full compliance with the financial management and reporting standards of ECFA.  Instructions for obtaining our financial disclosure documents are available through our office. The Board of Directors and staff of Mars Hill Broadcasting Co. Inc take very seriously the trust you put in us when you send a gift. We stand accountable to you, before God, to honor your trust…Therefore we pledge:

• To use your gift carefully and wisely in the fulfillment of our mission.
• To use your gift as you have designated
• To never ask for contributions that are not needed
• To never exchange, loan, rent or sell our donor mailing lists
• To have our financial records annually audited by an independent, certified public accountant
• To abide by the strict financial management and disclosure requirements of ECFA, including governance by an outside-controlled board of directors, appropriate use of funds, adequate financial disclosure and integrity in fund-raising.

“Wasn’t he actually speaking to us?  Yes, it was written for us, so that the one who plows and the one who threshes the grain might both expect a share of the harvest.” – 1 Corinthians 9:10

For those who itemize their deductions on their taxes:
 Stocks and mutual funds held in a taxable brokerage account can be donated directly to Mars Hill. This avoids any taxes due on the liquidation inside the account, while allowing a tax deductible donation for the current value.
 Other tax deductible giving strategies include Donor Advised Funds and Trusts.

For those who do not itemize their deductions on their taxes:
 Retired supporters of Mars Hill with Traditional IRA’s can use a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to contribute directly to this ministry. A QCD has no taxes withheld, potentially increasing the amount to be used for the Lord’s work, and not increasing taxable income for the donor.

We believe that all Christians are called first to support their local church. Therefore, we ask that you give to the Mars Hill Network only after you have fulfilled your biblical responsibility to your church. In addition to pledging as a yearly “Friend” of the Mars Hill Network, we would like to share the following investment giving opportunities.
