The NBA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with charitable, tax-exempt status. The support for our mission and programs come from the Disciples Mission Fund (DMF) of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), foundations, endowments, and unrestricted gifts from many generous donors. Thank you!

In accordance with the bylaws of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and with guidelines established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the NBA's consolidated financial records are audited by independent auditors. Our most recent audit report is available here.
