Footer Seal Guidestar


Orphan Outreach has secured the level of Gold Seal for non-profit transparency by Candid’s GuideStar program. A Gold Seal status is the leading symbol of non-profit transparency and accountability, presented by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of non-profit information. Each year, millions of people use GuideStar information to make decisions about nonprofits and the work they do. Donors explore charities and issues they want to support. Nonprofit leaders benchmark their organizations against their peers. Funders research grantees. We strive to provide the highest-quality, most complete nonprofit information available.

Less than five percent of non-profits registered with GuideStar have been recognized with a Gold Seal. More than 8 million visitors per year rely on GuideStar for their charitable giving and to learn about non-profits.

Footer Seal Ecfa 1


Orphan Outreach is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). The ECFA enhances trust in Christ-centered churches and ministries by establishing and applying Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™ to accredited organizations.

Founded in 1979, ECFA provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, transparency, fundraising, and board governance. The Christ-centered ministries accredited by ECFA include churches, denominations, educational institutions, rescue missions, camps, and many other types of tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations. Collectively, these organizations represent over $29 billion in annual revenue.

Management Fee

At Orphan Outreach, we are committed to providing services to children and families of the utmost quality and delivered with the utmost care. The program staff in our US office works tirelessly to provide guidance, mentoring, and training to our international partners. As well, they work closely with the international teams in building annual operational plans, budgeting, program design and management, project management, legal matters and construction project management. As a result, (no more) up to 20% of your program donation may be used to help cover our US program costs.  These US program funds may also be used to fund direct international program expenses as needed, as the international program budget may not be fully funded but is fully committed by Orphan Outreach. 

As our programs have grown in both size and impact, the cost of these programs have gone up. Quality programs with quality staff and quality outreach require significant investment. Our goal is to make sure every dollar is making a difference in the life of a child so we run a lean machine without sacrificing substance. The admin/vision fee allows us to provide quality care to each and every child.
