Our operating expenses for 2009 were less than 2%.  This percentage substantially surpasses guidelines established by leading charity watchdog groups.

Every effort is made to minimize overhead—so we can make the most of every dollar we receive.

 

Your support is so important to accomplish the mission of Gospel Outreach. As a ministry totally dependant on donations voluntarily given to assist in telling the world of the Gospel Story of Jesus love. We are keenly aware of our responsibility to Christ as well as to our donors in addition to the cities, town, villages around the world who will be blessed by your giving.

 

We have financial and program accountability checks  in place to monitor and measure the effective use of funds. From initial planning to the actual delivery of these monies.   The native evangelists, Bible workers and the literacy teachers and other ministry personnel that Gospel Outreach sponsors are paid from the funds that Gospel Outreach forwards to the different Seventh Day Adventist conferences for their support.  Gospel Outreach monitors and constantly evaluates how the funds being expending are being used in outreach for Christ so that the funds are used as efficiently as possible.
