They have accumulated almost $10 million in assets as of 12/31/16. Why aren’t they spending more on program services/

I gave to the Preemptive Love Coalition in immediate response to the crisis and sorrow of broken Aleppo. Two years ago, founder Jeremy Courtney came to my church to speak on the crisis in the Middle East. Prior to his insight, I was unintentionally ignorant to the facts. Through this organization, I have seen lives of refugees restored with hope. As we witness countless news articles and stories about refugees fleeing from their homes, it becomes hard to know who to trust and which organizations have a direct impact. Jeremy and the Preemptive Love Coalition is on the grounds providing warm meals and other resources to over 20,000 refugees every day. The story doesn't end there though. This organization equips these beautiful people with necessary skills to make a greater impact. I cannot state how much good PLC is doing in a small post but I know giving of any amount makes an immediate impact to families who need it most in Syria and Middle East. Thank you!

I have served as the Corporate Secretary for the Preemptive Love Coalition (PLC) since its founding, and also have provided this organization with pro bono legal services. All of the individuals associated with the PLC are people of the utmost integrity and the organization truly does great work.

I am also a regular donor to this organization, and I know that the money I give will be used properly and wisely.

This organization conducts operations with transparency and integrity. Moreover, each year they produce a Failure Report on lessons learned in Iraq where they provide heart surgeries for children. Their impact is personal, relationship, and physical!

Excellent organization. I've visited their operations in Iraq and fell in love with the children they serve and the "lean" model by which they have incredible impact.

I have followed Preemptive Love Coalition since 2009 and became a donor in 2011. They have made amazing strides towards their goal of pacifying communities through offering lifesaving heart surgeries. There is so much criticism for organizations, governments, and public figures involved in Iraq because everyone wants to see Iraq become something different. Despite this, PLC has earned the support of both the Iraqi community and the Iraqi government. They have done so much to not just remedy the backlog of heart surgeries in Iraq, but also to train Iraqi doctors and surgeons to perform these surgeries in local hospitals. I have set aside a monthly allotment for 4 years, and I know that every cent is worth it. I know my money is going towards building a stable Iraq, and I only wish I could offer more. Everyone in PLC is open, honest, and committed to this cause. I'm honored to support them.

After reviewing the group's Form 990's from 2012 and 2011, this group is far from being transparent.

I am usually very critical of nonprofits, but this one stands out considerably.
What draws me to PLC is their earnest and genuine heart in the task at hand. What shines through about them in comparison to many others is their honesty and transparency, not only in their advances and success, but in how they are growing and what they are learning.
Due to their small, local nature they also have lower overhead costs and they are literally on the ground, living in Iraq. I believe this gives them the ability to be more relevant and transparent with their focus and operation. There are no strings attached. There are no personal gains. There is just love.

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised to still be so optimistic and impressed by PLC. I will continue to support their genuine, love-filled efforts.
