Only a fraction of every dollar contributed to Focus on the Family comes from the sale of home-strengthening materials or other sources. So we must rely on the generosity of friends like you who benefit from family ministry. That's why we're very serious about earning your trust by using your support carefully and conservatively. If you find value in this ministry, please prayerfully consider supporting us now.
Every dollar you give to help support family is stretched to provide maximum impact and efficiency. We will honor your gifts — many of which we know are sacrificial — by being wise and careful stewards.
In fact, more than 80% of Focus on the Family's efforts are delivered directly to families through pure and direct ministry that depends on the generosity of friends like you, including:

We will never sell, rent or share our list of friends and donors. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide with Focus on the Family wholly-owned affiliated organizations or Focus's foreign Associate offices. We will only share personal data with entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf. However, in those situations where we retain third parties to perform processing tasks or other activities, and transfer personal data to those partners or to any of our foreign Associate offices, we require that these groups to provide at least an equivalent level of protection. We will maintain the highest security for that list, donor gift records and online giving systems. Our policy and promise to you extends to all personal information you provide to us; online and offline. Rest assured, your personal information is safe and secure.
Every gift to support Focus on the Family is used wisely and conservatively to help provide a wide variety of ministries to families, ranging from radio programs to, publications, books and even counseling — especially those that cannot afford the help they need.
