And these organizations Are under growing pressure to give donors More information about the Way contributions Are spent. Here in the first of a five part series is a look at the move toward financial disclosure by charities. By Louise Cook associated press writer representatives of the nations top evangelical associations Are meeting in Chicago later this week to talk about Money and to try to decide How much they. Should Tell the Public about the Way contributions Are spent. The religious charities traditionally have been the strongest opponents of efforts to Force non profit organizations to disclose information about their financial operations. Some spokesmen contend that legislation on financial disclosure would be a violation of the principle of separation of Church and state. The arguments and the fears remain. But a growing number of religious leaders say they must set up a voluntary system for financial disclosure to avoid a mandatory one. In a recent meeting in Washington d.c., roman Catholic Bishops approved strict new standards governing fund raising in the Church. The standards intended for use by All Catholic dioceses and religious orders in the United states require full accountability to contributors with regular audited reports setting Forth the amounts collected the costs of the fund raising and the purposes and uses of the Money. The evangelical leaders a about three dozen of them a were invited to Chicago by w. Stanley Mooneyham president of world Nisi of which a spokesman describes As a a non profit interdenominational outreach of christians concerned with the physical and spiritual needs of people around the world vision has been one of the few religious groups which has always been willing to provide financial information to donors who asked. In july officials of world vision and about half a dozen other religious charities met in the office of . Sen. Mark 0. Hatfield r-ore., who is a member of the world vision Board. Among the subjects under discussion was a Bill proposed by . Rep. Charles h. Wilson d-calif., which would require most major charities to provide a breakdown of where and How their Money is spent. Speaking in support of his Bill Vilson said it represented a a a Golden Opportunity to take a positive step that will insure that the vital work done by legitimate charitable organizations can be continued in the future in an environment that is not tainted by frequent at about the same time As Wilson was speaking Hatfield was talking to the religious leaders. Richard a Watson director of for world vision said Hatfield told them a if Christian agencies done to take the Bull by the horns and come up with some kind of organization of their own that voluntarily provides information then Congress is going to do it. A we agreed with sen. Hatfield. We Felt Christian agencies ought to do something Watson said world vision supports the idea of financial disclosure but is opposed to making it mandatory. There had been pressure for financial disclosure from other sources As Well. Published or arts said that the Billy Graham evangelistic association was not in compliance with a Minnesota Law requiring registration and annual reports on annuity Plains sold in the state. The problem a which Graham blamed on postal and other errors a was cleared up and the association subsequently provided for the first time a full Public breakdown of its spending. The Issue of financial disclosure is not a new one religious organizations in particular have come under attack Ever since the scandal within the pallet Tine fathers of Baltimore a roman Catholic order which raised $20 million in a two year period but spent less than 5 percent of the funds on charitable purposes. Some states already limit the amount charities can spend on fund raising. Others require charities to include a financial state ment along with appeals. Advertisements for the save the children foundation of Westport conn., include a Section which asks potential donors a do you wish verification of save the children credentials a the Section says that 78.1 per cent of the organizations Money is used for direct Aid and support of the Charity itself. An annual report and audit statement Are available on request. World vision tells contributors a Over the past three years world vision invested More than $43.9 million on its ministries while total overhead has averaged 17.1 a Complete financial report is sent to anyone who requests it. Like other charities religious organizations Are covered by a portion of the internal Revenue service code which provides tax exempt status to a corporations or any Community Chest fund or foundation organized and operated exclusively for religious charitable scientific testing for Public safety literary or educational purposes or for the prevention of cruelty to children or under the code none of the net earnings of the group can go to any private shareholder or individual. Tax exempt groups also Are prohibited from a carrying on propaganda or otherwise attempting to influence there Are some 250,000 tax exempt organizations in the United states. Most of them Are required to file financial reports with the 1rs.
