Derick and Jill Dillard have received some backlash after financial supporters of their Dillard Family Ministries began questioning why the family has spent so little time in the mission field. The Dillard family announced that they would be moving to Central America for “long-term”mission work; however, before making the move they setup a nonprofit organization for Dillard Family Ministries. The pair then began soliciting donations via their website. However, after just two months in Central America, the Dillard family was back in the United States. With few details provided about how the funds would be utilized by the ministry, fans began to question whether the Dillards were using the money for travel between the US and Central America. As a result, many demanded answers. Now it seems the Dillards are providing at least one option to unhappy donors, a refund.

The Dillard Family website has a donation page for fans to become “financial supports” for the Dillard Family Ministries. The ministries has been recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that accepts tax-deductible donations. Despite the recognition, the Dillards website offers few details on how funds will be spent. In fact, the only place on the website that outlined the work of Dillard Family Ministries has been removed from main bar on the website. The website formerly had a tab noted as “Ministry,” which has since been removed.
