Proving It: Every Dollar Renews Bihar

 

Simply put, the Jesus' Economy financial model is 100% to the Developing World. Every single dollar you donate goes exactly where you designate. For example, if you give $100 to planting churches in India, your full $100 goes to India and will be used only for planting churches. We raise our U.S. costs separately from developing world projects. We then go one step further by being completely financially transparent. We even prove our 100% model via grant receipts.

Proving It with Grant Receipts

Here are the details of the second installment of our grant to our partner in Northeast India for our Renew Bihar, India project.

Grant Receipt

This grant was issued to our partner in Northeast India, Transformation India Movement. In everything we do, partnership is the key and Transformation India Movement has allowed for us to execute our work in India through indigenous leaders. Our work in India is led by, ran by, and executed by people from India.

Grant Details

The second installment of our grant for the Renew Bihar, India project was issued in the amount of $7,431.20. This grant covered the costs of:

  • $1,000 for drilling our Third Water Well
  • $1,000 for drilling our Fourth Water Well
  • $2,715.60 for funding Church Planter Santhosh for his second year of sponsorship
    • $2,316 ($193 per month) for the church planter's direct costs, including salary, medical fund, retirement fund, travel costs, and annual Christmas gift
    • $399.60 ($33.30 per month) for administrative support in Bihar of Santhosh's efforts
  • $2,715.60 for funding Church Planting Efforts by Vinod and now Veer (who took over planting efforts in Vinod's region).
    • $2,316 ($193 per month) for the church planter's direct costs, including salary, medical fund, retirement fund, travel costs, and annual Christmas gift
    • $399.60 ($33.30 per month) for administrative support in Bihar of Vinod and Veer's efforts

Proving It with Field Reports

We have already issued the field reports related to this grant. View the water well field reports here. View the church planting field reports here. The administrative support per planter, detailed above, helps cover the costs of our partner in India generating the initial versions of these reports. It also allows for our partner to visit each church planter and offer them ongoing mentorship, accountability, and training. Furthermore, it allows for our partner to facilitate everything organizationally needed for a church planting effort, such as bookkeeping and issuing paychecks and reimbursements.
