Thank you for your compassionate willingness to offer much needed assistance to disaster victims. However your gift arrives, we will be sure to use these funds as instructed. It is the standing policy of Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief that all funds given through the TBC be used as directed by the donor. Funds given for victim assistance include transportation of equipment, vehicles, volunteers, and other materials to the relief site, purchasing food supplies and other materials used in the response and to provide direct support to disaster victims. Often this support may continue for several years through rebuild efforts. Funds given to General Disaster Relief go to the purchase and maintenance of equipment and preparation for the next disaster. No designated gifts are used for salaries or other general administrative expenses. Staff salaries and general operational expenses are provided for through the gifts of Tennessee Baptist Churches through the Cooperative Program.
