FUNDING not only seek to help in the raising of funds strictly for evangelical causes but mean to also ensure that only evangelical Christian givers are encouraged to give. This is something that has been found missing either in part or entirely from professed Christian crowdfunding currently exant.
FUNDING also seeks to present a valid platform for every single saint with an evangelical needy cause regardless of their country of location. We mean to exhaust all available channels to ensure that donations receivced are forwarded to their needy campaigners. For we are not in this just to make easy ROI (by ministering only to contries/nations envolving the least husstles) but to minister to saints in season or out of season.
We are happy to pronounce that we mean to levy no cent from alms given to help requests published on the platform. The platform shall instead have to hold up its own alms pleas for running costs. For which pleas’ success grace we too shall have to labor in prayer to secure. Alms campaigners should however ever anticipate incurring payment processing fees – which will depend entirely on the payment processing system used for both receiving and forwarding transactions. Normally around 1-3%.
FUNDING seeks to provide no more than an ordinary platform. One that does not claim to void the need of prayer of faith. We therefore, as with most if not all professed Christian crowdfunding platforms, employ no extreme and fallen publicizing measures such as social share buttons. I say extreme and fallen because I neither find social medias Christian friendly nor a necessities for a Christian’s well being. The foregoing are the main publicizing measures we mean to adopt in the ordinary:
- We expect to commend ourselves to evangelical Christian givers visiting. Who shall then possibly consider giving as well as bookmark the site for their future alms-giving needs.
- We shall use the “Pay Per Click” advertising through carefully picked keywords to ensure (if by any means possible) that only quality traffic is driven over.
The main aim of reviewing submitted help requests is to filter out those that will fail to demonstrate godly virtue in their nature or purpose. Either by lack of just scriptural grounds (for philtrophic causes) or the evangelical quality (for Gospel bases causes). Therefore, if you as the help request are evangelical Christian, chances are you will submit justifyable/evangelical help requests.
While we do not protest to be the only ‘evangelical’ Christian alms/crowdfunding platform online, it was because we could not find one that FUNDING was incepted. Many professed Christian crowdfunding platforms certainly existed but non could be found wothy – but that all were materially wanting in one form or the other. Hence if you care to maximize the probability of being funded with clean money (and every true saint should care), then this we can dare promise on this platform. For Christian never want to avail relief regardless of what the reliever’s source of funds be. But must care and desire only relief not from acursed funds. Below are the professed Christian platforms we had a chance to look at (and found them seriously wanting in one way or the other). I pupurse to create a blog post to detailing out mejor acccusations of each:
- FaithLaucher (now acquired by GiveSendGo)
Please kindly note that we felt discussing plain secular crowdfunding platforms was not worth the time. So only professed Christian platforms were applicable for the subject in question. For more information on the dangers of using plain secular as well as compromised professed Christian platforms, kindly see this blog post.
If you are an evangelical Christian, then you should never wish to give alms merely for to relieve a need but as well to be satisfied that you secure God’s honor (who demands this virtue of us). For which reason you should ever want to make certain that you bestow your funds on causes and cases worthy of God’s honor. And one of our prime concerns is to foster only compaigns or help requests that demonstrate the evangelical quality – be it a philatrophic or Gospel propagation cause.
So if you cannot be given enough reasons to believe that your alms giving should be God honoring else where, then will should certainly want to cosider giving on this very platform.
While the platform is setup in manner that anyone can give, we must contend that the main goal of the platform above relieving the needy is to secure God’s honor and glory. Since alms giving is not honorable by virtue before God – but that it should be done right. For this reason we encourage givers to try and identify themselves with the below prior to giving.
- Be an evangelical Christian – simply a biblical Christian with a healthy relationship with the Christ of God and his Holy Spirit
- Be satisfied that your source of funds is clean. This will naturally be the case if you are indeed evangelical in your Christian position.
- Be willing to give – for the Lord loves a cheerful giver
- Be meaning to give both to relieve as well as securing God’s honor and glory, and thereby lay in store threasures in heaven.
- Be willing to remain anonymous in your giving (except in cases where it is necessary to be identified – particularly to your beneficiary).
- Be fully persuated of your giving decision – else we suggest you pray about it.
FUNDING seeks to present a valid platform before every single saint with an evangelical needy cause or gift – regardless of their country of location. We mean to exhaust all available channels to ensure that platform given alms are forwardable to their needy campaigners. In the ‘worse’ cases, we shall refund every cent to their resepective donors.
While it ever our wish to foward given alms to their respective campaigners in realtime where possible, we are curently limited by systems and must pool all funds together in our Paypal account. Help request owners are however welcomed to email us at anytime to action a payout of any balance on their campaign or help-request account.
Funds shall be paid out to the help campaigner’s Paypal account where applicable/available. Else the campaigner can advise as to what alternative online service should be application for their location. And we should then endeavour to accordingly forward the funds through any of such service. Unfortunately, incurred forwarding fees will need to be absorbed by the transferrable amount.
