Meant as a form for nonprofits, Form 990 breaks down revenue into four categories: “Contributions and grants,” “Program service revenue,” “Investment income,” and “Other revenue.”

Under “Investment income,” TBN listed approximately $17.2 million in 2011, versus about $4.9 million in 2012, or a loss of about $12 million.
