Arizona Baptist Children's Services & Family Ministries (ABCS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
We pursue financial integrity through transparency and stewardship, which stem from our core values:
- Honor God in all we do.
- Build relationships through trust and respect.
- Be good stewards with what we have been given.
- Do everything with excellence.
ABCS is accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and abides by their Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship. The accreditation is reviewed on a yearly basis.
We know you have many choices when it comes to supporting ministries and charitable organizations, and we are grateful for your interest in ABCS. Contributions made to ABCS are used wherever the need is greatest, unless a specific ministry is designated. Funds stay locally in the region where the contribution is given.
