We use every dollar exactly as you intend. This means that if you donate $100 towards a sewing machine in Bihar, India—for a training center—we ensure that a full $100 goes towards that sewing machine. We don’t take operations costs out of that $100 or credit card fees—we send the full $100.
With Jesus' Economy, your money always goes where you designate. And as you can imagine, we have some pretty complex accounting to make this happen. But because of the technology we use, we can track every dollar as it is donated—and ensure it goes exactly where you intend.
But here’s the catch. We still have other expenses. And at this point, I don’t mean salaries.
Currently, our entire leadership team donates their time, that includes Kalene Barry (our Chief Projects Officer) and myself (CEO). Down the road, we will have regular employees, but currently we do not.
Our Operations Fund goes towards things like contract services, flying to project sites, and new product purchases at fair trade prices. The Operations Fund covers credit card fees and maintaining our website. It takes care of travel expenses, and event fees. It is a large part of how we do what we do.
We use the Operations Fund to invest in growing our network, structure, and telling the story of Jesus' Economy. Its how we tell the story of artisans around the globe and develop projects like Renew Bihar, India. Our Operations Fund allows for us to make the world a better place. Investing in the Operations Fund is investing in the future of Jesus' Economy.
We make your money go where you plan for it to go. Today, I would love for you to consider donating towards the Operations’ Fund.
Thank you for considering donating towards the Operations of Jesus’ Economy. Without it, we wouldn’t be here.
