Where our money comes from and where it goes
BRF’s charitable work is funded by income we generate through our charitable activities and by donations from individuals, churches and charitable trusts.
Sales of our books and resources, along with fees from events and training and our other charitable activities, generate generate a significant portion of BRF’s income (38%). However, to provide all that we offer across BRF’s ministries, especially through Anna Chaplaincy, Living Faith, Messy Church and Parenting for Faith, we depend on the support of people like you.
Our work is only possible because of people who stand alongside us in ministry and care about what we do. Last year, 4,664 individuals, 138 churches and 32 charitable trusts helped us to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people, both young and old.
We’d love you to join us.
BRF’s financial statements provide a detailed review of the year of the charity. On pages 4-8 of the annual report it summarises the highlights of the year for each of our areas of work.
BRF’s funding comes from a combination of the income we are able to generate through our charitable activities and the generous support of individuals, churches and charitable trusts.
Previous financial statements are available on the Charity Commission website. Our charity number is 233280.
