Ignatian Volunteer Corps ® (IVC) is a reflection of the faith and trust of those who support the organization’s work: our volunteers, partners, donors, regional councils, clergy, board and staff. We understand that, without you, we would not be able to do the work we have all been called to do.
IVC is a 501(c)(3) charity registered with the US Internal Revenue Service under the umbrella of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). Since IVC is categorized as a religious organization, it is exempt from filing a Form 990 with the IRS. However, we place the highest value on transparency and accountability, so we not only file returns with the IRS, we also provide complete financial information on our website every year. We invite you to read our financial reports [see the list of documents on the sidebar menu, on the left side of this page]. It is important to us that you understand how IVC is spending the money that you donate to support our mission, and that you have the opportunity to hold us accountable for the results that we achieve.
Beyond financial reporting, we publish a monthly e-newsletter , presenting stories of those who have volunteered to serve and those who are served, to show how donations are being used to transform lives in the communities in which we operate. Additional stories are featured on the IVC Website , the IVC Facebook page , and in other publications and channels as opportunities arise.
