Joyce Meyer Ministries is and has been above board for as long as I have been a donor (years).
They have the seal of approval from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) which is not easy to attain.
They are also transparent as far as where all your donations go.
I believe its 85% of the money donated goes directly to the medical supplies, water, food, orphanages, disaster relief, etc...the other goes to necessaries for running a large ministry such as hers. Employees, electricity for the building and the like. I've also learned that Joyce herself takes a salary from the money she makes as an author not from donations.
For all that, I give Joyce Meyer Ministries a 5 star! It's refreshing to know there is a ministry out there that takes care to use the hard earned money people donate to actually help those it's intended for.

Joyce Meyer Ministries is one of the best organizations out there. Joyce teaches the truth of God's word and her efforts to help others far exceeds what many of us will ever be able to do. I applaud her and her ministry for all the wonderful, honest work they do! Keep teaching Joyce you continue to change lives!
Review from Guidestar
JMM does a great deal of valuable work world-wide, and when I was a contributor to this organization, I received reports of where the money went along with amounts spent for overhead. Although the other reviewer criticizes (without providing supporting documentation) the use of a corporate jet, this person should also consider the issues involved with travel on commercial airlines. As a business flyer, I cannot tell you how many times I have had to re-schedule meetings due to airline issues. As a public speaker with thousands of people waiting for each appearance, Joyce Meyer does not really have the luxury of saying "oops - the airline bumped me, guess I won't be there." This ministry has made a positive difference in my life and in the lives of people world-wide. The recordings of those public appearances (most of which are free to attendees) offer hope and direction to a struggling world. I stopped donating to this ministry for financial reasons, but still receive their monthly magazine and occasional free offers even though I no longer send any money to support them.
Review from Guidestar
I understand Joyce has a private jet to fly her around the country, You can build a lot of oprhanages and feed a lot of hungry people with that money. Costs just to operate these jets are in the thousands of dollars per hour of flight time in addition to their purchase price which for a jet like Joyces is in the 20 to 25 million dollar range. The Bible tells us to shed our worldly belongings and follow Him. Joyce should reread that section. Joyce, fly commercial and feed tens of thousands of children every year.
