Derick Dillard fundraiser shut down by Pure Charity website

Derick Dillard fundraiser shut down

The day after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, Counting On star Derick Dillard launched a fundraising campaign in hopes of raising $6,500 “for various missions opportunities…including trips for Gospel-advancement and humanitarian work in Northwest Arkansas, North America, and abroad.” Within just a few days, the campaign was removed — apparently by the hosting website due to a violation of their terms of use.

Here is the message displayed by when you attempt to view Derick Dillard’s fundraising page:

This fundraiser is no longer available.

This fundraiser was removed because of violations of our Terms of Use for Registered User Conduct.

We have removed the fundraiser and have informed the nonprofit of this decision.

Derick and Jill Dillard asking for donations

I read through the site’s Terms of Use and ran across this specification:

Private foundations, individuals and disqualified supporting organizations are not considered Charitable Organizations eligible to receive Distributions of Fund Assets.

Although the money being raised would eventually go to the Cross Church School of Ministry, which I am guessing is an eligible charity organization, the money was being raised for Derick himself to pay for his “one-year, ministry, residency experience” there. It is purely speculation on my part, but this might be the reason the campaign was removed.

There was also a clause that specified that users cannot “impersonate any person or entity, including, but not limited to, a Pure Charity official, forum leader, guide or host, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity.” That had me wondering if perhaps the campaign was fake — but then I remembered that both Derick and Jill’s verified Twitter accounts shared links:

Neither Derick nor Jill have addressed the shutting down of the fundraising campaign. Also quiet is the Cross Church School of Ministry.

The premature demise of his fundraising campaign is just the latest bad news for Derick Dillard, who is reportedly falling out of favor at TLC after his comments about I Am Jazz star Jazz Jennings. Derick called the “reality” show an oxymoron before adding: “‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.”

I’m thinking Derick could save a little face if he went down to the coastal region of Texas or Louisiana and did the Lord’s work by helping those in need after Hurricane Harvey.

  • kate

    oh please, this guy is the last thing hurricane victims need. “you can have this blanket, but only after you sit through 2 hours of preaching and agree to bring 2 friends next week.”

    • Trash TV

      Nonono! Don’t take a blanket from a Duggar.
      God knows who has been ‘blanket trained’ on it.
      (Blanket training is hitting a baby with a wooden spoon every time the baby crawl off the blanket. They do that until the child stays on the blanket, so it learns to obey the mother an father nomatter what. Michelle has talked openly about doing it.)

      • kate

        of course blankets aren’t for keeping warm, they’re for abusing–excuse me, TRAINING–babies.

  • BreeMorey

    These people give God a bad name….So many rules to follow for god to accept you lol I’ll pass

  • TA

    Perhaps this charity should change its policy to state “Individuals with a profitable reality TV show cannot ask for donations for their own ministry work”.
    So glad to see this shut down, that family thinks they’re above all the rules.

  • Natalia

    Oh no, they might actually have to spend their own money for their next vacation…. I mean mission.

  • emmajams

    Derick Dillard and his Stepford Wife…two true pieces of garbage trying yet again to hit trailer trash up for money when they already rake in thousands from their “reality show”. Typical fundies. A lot like that other POS Joel Osteen. Derick Dillard looks like a drug addict. I wouldn’t be surprised. They already have a child molester in the family so the druggie is just a natural addition. This family is vile.

  • Charla

    How about they get jobs and take care of themselves? You know, how republicans say people should live. Stop being hypocrites and living off other ppl. The internet is out there if people want to find Jesus. They don’t need your help to do so.

  • Ml555

    What he do to his face? Yuck when he was first on the show his teeth weren’t that big they were very different. It changed the whole look of his face those giant straight teeth. Think they we a lil crooked before but at least they fit in his mouth. Eww and eww for fundraising for your own personal use. Bleh

  • Dude Please

    Asking for money to live in Arkansas, where they live! Basically, pay our bills so we don’t have to work. Greedy and gross. Get a job Derrick.

  • Upside-down Flower

    If he truly wanted to school for ministry learning he would get off his lazy grifting ass and get a job and stop conning people into supporting his and his wife’s easy living lifestyle that TLC took away.

    He’s not a true Christian (imho) if he isn’t willing to struggle making his own money to do something he want to do (which I think basically is nothing and have TLC or others (gullible fans) pay for it. He’s young, healthy, able and capable of working. No excuses except being lazy and entitled.

  • Just Call Me Amanda

    ALL of the Duggars (and extended family) feel they’re “entitled”. I’m so sick of them acting as if they don’t have money. Derrick has always seemed shady to me… all the “mission” trips he and Jill have gone on to stay a few weeks and return how’re! Most people call those kind of trips…vacations! Frankly I wish they had zero tv programs on air!

  • wow

    He just tweeted that they are looking into this and trying to get it fixed so people can “donate.” The grifting continues and so does the nerve of this dirt bag. He look like a meth addict. DON’T donate to these con artists.
