In the 2015 tax form, which is the most recent filing available on GuideStar, obtained by The Sun, the foundation states that it started off the year with $52,153.
According to the 990 tax form, the foundation received just $5,231 in contributions, gifts, grants and more.

According to ProPublica, the Amy Roloff Charity Foundation had total assets of $34,455 and brought in $273,893, thanks to a golf tournament and lavish dinner/auction gala in 2012.
But after expenses of $264,303, the net income that year was only $9,590.
CHARITY CHAPTER CLOSES
The Amy Roloff Foundation website is no longer active and a Facebook account for the non-profit shows the most recent activity was December 29, 2018.
Amy’s website currently reads: “Amy recently made the very hard and tough decision to end her Charity Foundation in 2020. However, helping and giving to others is still at her core and she very much continues to attend and make appearances to support and advocate for charities and foundations that truly make a difference to enrich the lives of children, youth and families as much as she can.
“Thank you ALL that have given to ARCF over the years. Together we made a BIG difference and will continue to do so.”
On December 10, 2019, VP Lisa Dixon revealed where some of the donated money was going in a tweet: “Amy Roloff Charity Foundation (ARCF) just purchased and delivered a large amount of gift cards for homeless teens-Human Solutions Holiday Store.”
