Statement of Financial Accountability
At EMERGE, we adhere to the highest standards of financial accountability. We pride ourselves on careful stewardship of your gifts.
Every year our financial statements are audited by an independent auditor. In addition, we contract with nonprofit MACC Commonwealth, a third party, for our financial services. Their daily work with our finances provides an additional level of accountability.
Here are our IRS Form 990s from the past four years.

Additional information is also available on the Guidestar website.
We want you to know that we are committed to using the vast majority of your gift to improve the lives of people facing significant obstacles. Here is an accounting of our expenses last year.
Last year EMERGE has directed 84% of our funds towards Programming, with 12% going towards Administrative and 4% towards Fundraising.
We also have other endorsements that validate our good stewardship practices. Every year, multiple discerning foundations, corporate donors and government entities entrust us with growing amounts of financial support, after examining our financial records.
EMERGE is a 501c3 and your gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Thank you for working with us as we create better jobs, better lives, and better community.
