A group of ministers from Ohio through their organization Clergy Voice has complained to the IRS and urged it to investigate the Fellowship Foundation, a religious group that organizes the National Prayer Breakfast. The reason is that the Fellowship Foundation received money from an Islamic organization six years ago with alleged links to terrorist groups.

By receiving the money, the ministers say that the organization violated its tax exempt status. On its part, the Fellowship Foundation admitted to receiving two checks for $25,000 in May and June 2004 from the Missouri based Islamic American Relief Agency. This relief agency was listed in a State Finance Committee list as a terrorist financing organization in January of that year.
