The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches (FSYR) must be responsible to the donors who fund our charitable work with the children and families of Florida. We must earn your trust each and every day. Our credibility rests on a foundation of honesty, accountability, integrity, and high quality service to the children and families of Florida.
FSYR has once again earned the highest audit rating, known as an “unqualified opinion,” from the external audit firm of Batts, Morrison, Wales and Lee Certified Public Accountants.
FSYR is in a strong financial position with no debt.
FSYR is very conservative in the allocation of expenses. No portion of our direct mail appeals, donor correspondence or publications are considered “educational or program related” expense. Furthermore, we do not hire professional fund-raising companies; nor do we conduct any telephone solicitations.
FSYR was the first in the state to be issued a Charitable Gift Annuity permit in 1974 and we maintain reserves in this fund equal to or exceeding the state standards.
