(New video about why we investigate televangelists)
Recently we initiated a new project that will captivate national news media, and attempt to send shock waves through America’s church community and beyond.
We want to go for real impact: The digital equivalent of Luther’s 95 thesis on the Wittenberg Castle Cathedral door.
Trinity Foundation’s new investigative project takes aim at a particular method of fraud used in televangelist fundraising. We are developing a strategy to expose this fraud so that potential donors won’t be deceived by the dishonest words of religious conmen.
To accomplish this goal, we need to bring new people on board. Trinity Foundation needs to hire an additional investigator or two, but currently we lack the financial means to do so.
Our new personnel would assist in updating our “Governance Project”; will research the assets of televangelists and mega-church pastors; and will research legal strategies for establishing precedent-setting civil and criminal court cases to protect the public from religious fraud.
Our founder, Ole Anthony, called for a 3rd wave of Christianity, but first the church at large needs to be held accountable and re-introduce transparency, accountability, and integrity—something that is sorely lacking in large media ministries and mega-churches.
Our team excels in open-source investigations, digging through online data for possible fraud, money laundering, and self-dealing. We track ministry and televangelist aircraft and verify ownership. Preacher Planes—a new Trinity Foundation daily blog on Instagram and Twitter—keeps this in the public’s eye.
We’ve created this GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for the new project and attempt to cover our entire 2022 budget. Please consider financially supporting our investigations.
GoFundMe donors will receive periodic updates about the project and our investigations.
