Stewardship Report

Stand to Reason is committed to wise financial stewardship. At least 80% of expenditures go directly to ministry activity to fulfill STR's mission:  to train and equip Christians to think more clearly about their faith and to make an even-handed, incisive, yet gracious defense for classical Christianity and classical Christian values in the public square. ??STR has been recognized by third-party organizations that monitor non-profit fiscal management.
