Funding and tax exemption

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is highly rated by the American Institute of Philanthropy, a nonprofit charity watchdog organization. MCC is registered as a nonprofit charitable organization in both Canada and the United States, making donations to MCC tax deductible.

Much of MCC’s support comes from a variety of generous individuals and churches. "This donation is just a drop in the bucket," one donor wrote, "but perhaps you will receive many other drops and then have enough to help." MCC is strongly supported by Mennonite, Mennonite Brethren, Brethren in Christ and Amish communities of faith, as well as by many churches and individuals who are not Anabaptist.

In the United States and Canada, MCC thrift shops and relief sales provide more than 23 percent of MCC’s total contributions. Volunteer-initiated events from bike rides to bake sales provide consistent ongoing financial support. Gifts in kind include donations of items such as school, relief and health kits, blankets and other material aid.
