ReSurge International operates in an environment of transparency, accountability
and integrity to fulfill its mission and to uphold and earn donors’ trust
and support. Its board of directors—composed of 23 medical, legal and
business leaders—understands its financial responsibilities to ensure the
exclusive and effective use of all assets for charitable purposes.
Every year, ReSurge receives an independent audit of its financial statements
and operations in compliance with the California Nonprofit Integrity Act. You may find our audited financials here. In
addition, ReSurge files a Form 990 with the Internal Revenue Service annually. You can also download our 2012 annual report here.
Moreover, ReSurge International’s financials and operations are reviewed
each year for its continuing membership in InterAction, the largest alliance
of U.S.-based international development and humanitarian NGOs;
InterAction’s standards address programmatic performance, fundraising and
Charity Navigator assigns ReSurge a 3-star rating, the second highest rating
possible. ReSurge appreciates this excellent rating, but believes that Charity
Navigator’s star ranking of nonprofit organizations tells only part of the story.
Charity Navigator’s methodology measures only cash donations. ReSurge
depends greatly on donated medical services from our medical volunteers, as
well as donated medical supplies from many health care corporations. While
these donated goods and services account for 67 percent of ReSurge’s total
revenue, Charity Navigator measures only cash donations in determining how
efficiently an organization is run.
