DESC is chartered by the State of Florida as a charitable agency. It is governed by a Board of Directors who represent the founding churches, as well as other churches, organizations and individuals interested in our ministry. Contributions from sponsoring churches contribute 15% of our operating expenses, with the majority of our support and funding coming from foundations, grants, fundraising activities and individual contributions.
