What Happened to the Promise Keepers?

Remember The Promise Keepers? The organization was a religious, cultural, and even political phenomenon in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Now, as it launches another major endeavor, the organization seems to have lost its hold on the public zeitgeist. Though financial statements cannot tell the entire story of an organization and its trajectory, they are often informative. And, as they like to say, a few pictures are worth a few thousands words. With this in mind, below are presented four financial indicators for the organization since 2001, along with trendlines ...

(Amounts reflect gifts, grants, and contributions received from the Form 990 Support Schedule)
(Amounts reflect total assets from the Form 990 Balance Sheet)
(Amounts reflect compensation from trustees, officers, or key employees from the Form 990 list)
(Amounts reflect Other Salaries and Wages from the Form 990 Statement of Functional Expenses)


  1. It would be fun to see a graph of the runup in contributions and salaries in previous 5 or 7 years. I think we would see a mountain.

    1. I suspect you're right. I wasn't able to find 990s from that far back, but will keep an eye out.
