FY 2016 Annual Report

ReSurge International operates in an environment of transparency, accountability and integrity to fulfill its mission and to uphold and earn donors' trust and support. Its board of directors—composed of medical, legal and business leaders—understands its financial responsibilities to ensure the exclusive and effective use of all assets for charitable purposes.

Every year, ReSurge receives an independent audit of its financial statements and operations in compliance with the California Nonprofit Integrity Act.

Our financials and operations are also reviewed each year for our continuing membership in InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based international development and humanitarian NGOs. InterAction's standards address programmatic performance, fundraising and financial management.

Charity Navigator assigns ReSurge a 2-star rating. ReSurge appreciates this good rating, but believes that Charity Navigator's star ranking of nonprofit organizations tells only part of the story. Charity Navigator's methodology measures only cash donations. ReSurge depends greatly on donated medical services from our medical volunteers, as well as donated medical supplies from a range of health care corporations. While these donated goods and services account for 40 percent of ReSurge's total revenue, Charity Navigator measures only cash donations in determining how efficiently an organization is run. We encourage donors and potential donors to view our complete financial picture. Please contact us at 408-737-8743 or info@resurge.org to learn more.

This year, we celebrated an enormous milestone: our 100,000th surgery. Our journey began in 1969 with the simple act of saving one child from a life of disfigurement and shame. This report tells just some of the stories of hope that ReSurge has brought to children and adults around the world.
