VIRGINIA BEACH — Pat Robertson’s television ministry continues to ride a wave of ever-mounting contributions, which have almost doubled in less than a decade.
Donors gave $160 million to Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network, according to tax statements for the year ending in March 2005, an increase of 21 percent from the previous year. Contributions to CBN have increased steadily since 1997, when it received $84 million, filings with the Internal Revenue Service show.
Donations from viewers and supporters account for most of the network’s overall revenue of $236 million ."
