Special note on donations:
AFM Works hard to be as efficient as possible and we keep our costs low. Typically 90% or more reach our end ministers in need. We are much more efficient than fundraising websites that are in the business of making money on people's donations. Sites like GoFundMe will tell you that they charge about 8% to 9.25% (plus it is not tax deductible) of the funds you send, and AFM absorbs none for personal use, and out bank card transactions only cost about 3.5%, donate by check it cost us zero and by e-check 1% per transaction. The additional costs that GoFundMe type sites don't make you aware of are the transfer fees it takes to get the money overseas and that varies on how it is sent and the amounts. GoFundMe and sites like that do not provide that service. Someone in the USA will have to collect it and send it and be liable for personal taxes on it all! Cash transfer services can run as high as 10 to 20% in many cases especially if you don't know the best methods when you take into account the conversion rates and fees! AFM combines funds and minimizes costs going out to our ministry partners, and we are experienced at finding the lowest options; thus we can keep the costs from 5 to 7% in total incoming and outgoing fees and about 3% for our operating costs. 90 to 95 percent net to the ministry partner in most cases and in many cases if we have enough general funds to cover costs, 100% is sent to end ministers when we are able. If you are wanting to send a very large gift of 1000 or more, contact us at email@example.com and we will ensure that highest possible portion will be received. If our pastors used GoFundMe to raise funds it would net cost them minimum 15% at best take a very long time to get to them and most likely cost more like 25% or more in the end, plus it would not be deductible to you. Fundraising sites cost much more, because they are not a charity, but a business trying to make a profit. We pay no salaries and we do this in love of God and his call, not for profit.
We do our best to always honor givers designation wishes. According to IRS rules AFM Ministry must reserve the right to apply funds as we deem necessary, in order to maintain our 501C3 public charity status. IRS will not allow forced designations that benefit donors to prevent tax evasion and money laundering. When we do fundraisers for specific needs and more money comes in than what we actually need for that project or pastor, we will apply the surplus to our general fund and use it to fill in a likewise similar critical need that God has led us to do. In some cases of larger amounts we may consult with the giver to see if they have a preference to the change of use. In all cases, we value that you put your trust in us to manage best all donations to AFM as valuable resources that belong to God and thus must honor Christ in all we do. We want to be good stewards of all resources God entrusts to us. Sponsorship donations for an individual children in an orphan or indigent care program are put into the pool of funds going to the pastor in charge of that child to utilize the funds for all the children in his care, as is the loving thing to do and are not stockpiled only for that one child. Thank you, and God bless you for taking part in serving God and our fellow man by partnering with us financially any time you can or on a regular basis!
