Things aren't looking so good for Derick Dillard and therefore Jill Duggar these days. The former missionaries had their non-profit organization officially dissolved by board members, after announcing last August that they would no longer be accepting donations. 

  • A source revealed to Radar Online that Dillard Family Ministries is finally, officially no more. 

    "The company was dissolved on February 8, 2018 by the Board of Directors,” a spokesperson for Arkansas Secretary of State revealed to the site. Jill and Derick have been the subject of much ire from fans over the years, as many people didn't feel they were very accountable for the donations that they received.

  • Yup, before he was irritating fans with his wildly offensive rants on social media, Derick was pissing people off by shamelessly asking them to send money. 

    The Dillards served as on-and-off missionaries in El Salvador for nearly two years, making frequent and prolonged trips home to the states. Fans questioned the validity of their mission, especially since they weren't endorsed by their own home church

    They were still asking fans to send money as recently as last August, after they had already settled back home in Arkansas for good. Derick also started another GoFundMe account asking for $10,000 in November, but that was quickly shut down as well. 

  • It's a mystery as to how Derick plans on supporting his family from here on out, as he was fired from TLC after bullying a teen trans girl online.

    Although he maintains that he was never fired, and that he was never paid anyway for his years as a key character on Counting On, the fact remains that Derick is currently unemployed. Jill seems to have recently started her own business, but given the shady circumstances, we're not sure exactly how long that's going to last.

  • We feel really bad for Jill, and miss her a lot on the show.

    But dang, here's to hoping that she's actually standing up to her husband behind the scenes, and not just condoning his actions. It's one thing to have religious conviction, but entirely another to be rude and downright awful to people because they don't believe the same way that you do. 

    Here's to hoping that the Dillard family's charity being shut down is a wakeup call to the couple to start acting out of love an compassion, rather than judgement condemnation. We won't hold our breath.
