MEBO is a 501(c)(3) organization and a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) in good standing. Contributions to MEBO represent the combined efforts of the Western Church and the Global Church – the gifts of individual donors, foundations and churches making up a significant part of a diversified funding stream – and are stewarded carefully to support the ministry of our partners on the ground in the Middle East.
MEBO operates well below the standard percentage for operations to support a non-profit. MEBO supports the following family of ministries within the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development: The Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS), the Dar Manhal Al Hayat (DMAH) publishing house, Beirut Baptist School (BBS), the SKILD Center (Smart Kids with Individual Learning Differences), Baptist Children and Youth Ministry (BCYM), and MERATH (Middle East Revive and THrive).
