Financial Responsibility

Faithfulness and stewardship are two key concepts that have characterized The Gideons International since its inception in 1899. The Association remains faithful to God’s call and direction in maintaining its singular objective of winning others for Christ while observing a level of stewardship focused on properly using the resources entrusted to it.

These two key characteristics are especially evident in the handling of the donations received by The Gideons International.

Per the audited financial statements for fiscal year ending May 31, 2021, the Association received US$111 million (net of US$16 million for use in 13 National Association countries) in total Operating Support and Revenue of which US$33 million was used for the purchase and placement of Bibles and New Testaments worldwide. An additional US$45 million is restricted for purchase and placements of Bibles and New Testaments in the next fiscal year. In addition, $20.1 million was used for other program services funded by donations of individual members and other resources not designated for Scriptures.
