Victory Ministries of Alaska has historically reported fundraising expenses on their federal tax return called the Form 990. However, Victory Ministries of Alaska’s most recent Form 990 for 09/2019 does not list fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities are only rarely able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We have reached out to Victory Ministries of Alaska for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.

The nature of the atypical financial reporting issues identified are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with information that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.

2010-12 07/01/2013 --Donor Advisory

This donor advisory was published on Monday, July 1, 2013

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for Victory Ministries of Alaska on December 1, 2014 because the Donor Advisory was in place for more than one year (since July 1, 2013) and because the issue that prompted the Donor Advisory has been resolved. Specifically:

  • The charity filed amended Forms 990 for FY 2011, 2012 and 2013 indicating fundraising expenses incurred.

Charity Navigator had published a Donor Advisory for this charity because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • Victory Ministries of Alaska had historically reported fundraising expenses on their Form 990.  But it had not listed fundraising expenses on recent Forms. Based on our experience, charities only rarely are able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We reached out to Victory Ministries of Alaska for clarification, but did not received an adequate explanation. We were therefore unable to evaluate Victory Ministries of Alaska and thus issued a Donor Advisory.
