The work of God Said Go Missions is, in a very real way, a complete act of faith. That’s why we prayerfully seek to identify specific ways in which God would have us reach the neediest and most vulnerable children. We take seriously our responsibility to spend every dollar you give efficiently, in ways that honor the God we serve.
Without your partnership, GSG Missions would not be able to care for the children we serve. We are only as strong as the trust you place in us to use your gifts wisely, efficiently, and with transparency. We take this responsibility seriously and strive to use every dollar in ways that have the most impact in the lives of children suffering from extreme generational poverty.
We know that stewardship is important to you, too. When you invest in GSG, you can be sure we will treat your gifts with the utmost care and that we are committed to financial accountability for how your gifts are spent. We want you to be as confident in the wisdom of your own stewardship as we are in ours.
So far in 2020, GSG has served children and families at 26 communities throughout Guatemala with our medical ministry, J33 Medical Missions. Of our total expenses, about 86 cents of every dollar went directly to help children in need. Five missionaries are serving overseas through GSG, and we expect that number to grow tremendously by the end of the year.
As always, GSG is committed to wise stewardship of your financial gifts. A key aspect of this is ensuring that administrative and fundraising costs are kept as low as possible.
We work hard to ensure your donation is used effectively for maximum impact. For every $1 you donate, 86 cents goes directly to the project you’re supporting. The remainder is used wisely to cover operating expenses and to invest in developing resources that enable to us to raise more funds to expand our work.
Guidestar has recognized GSG Missions Inc.’s commitment to transparency as part of its determination to give GSG Missions its Bronze Star rating. Being a new ministry, this is the highest rating we are able to achieve. As time goes on, we are committed to earning their highest rating.
GSG Missions believes that as a ministry we have a sacred obligation to you, our donors and constituents. That’s why we have very strict guidelines that detail our commitments to our supporters. Here is what you have a right to expect from us:
We know many of our supporters give sacrificially, and they grant us the privilege and give us the responsibility to use their gifts wisely and efficiently. We pledge to keep our administrative costs low, to put as much as possible directly into caring for needs of children suffering from extreme generational poverty across Latin America.
Because we believe God provides for this ministry, we promise never to raise funds in a manner that dishonors God or disrespects our supporters. We will always be truthful, accurate, and prompt in our reports to our donors.
GSG maintains the highest standards possible in financial record-keeping and accounting. We abide by all applicable federal accounting and fundraising guidelines. While GSG may occasionally pay Christian radio stations and artists a fee for helping us share the Kids Alive story and acquire new donors, we will never participate in commission-based fundraising.
We will never share, rent, sell, publish, or otherwise provide donors’ names or personal information to any other entity nor will we send mailings on behalf of other organizations. This policy covers all channels of communication, including electronic, written, and oral communications. GSG Missions will always respect your security and privacy.
We consider our supporters to be friends, and we believe strongly in the power of prayer. That’s why we invite and encourage you to share prayer requests with us, and we commit to pray for these concerns.
Since Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations, we desire to serve you by helping you fulfill both the Great Commission and the Great Commandment – to love God and love your neighbor – through partnering with you in providing spiritual and physical care for suffering children around Latin America.
GSG Missions, Inc. is committed to keeping all donor information strictly private and confidential. Your personal information is safeguarded and will never be shared with others. We will not sell, trade, exchange or share your personal information.
A conflict of interest may exist when the interest or concerns of any director, officer, or staff member or said person’s immediate family, or any party, group or organization in which said person holds a position as an employee, officer, director or partner, may be seen as competing with the interest or concerns of GSG Missions, Inc.
Each member of the Board of Directors and staff of the aforementioned organization MUST DISCLOSE IN WRITING to the board any possible conflict of interest. This disclosure must be updated annually. When such conflict of interest is relevant to a matter requiring action by the Board of Directors, the interested director shall bring it to the attention of the Board and the interested director will retire from the room in which the Board is meeting and will not participate in any discussion or vote on such matter.
Procedures. If any person knows of or has a suspicion about misconduct, dishonesty or fraud relating to GSG Missions, Inc., he/she should contact the Executive Director. If the alleged wrongdoing concerns the Executive Director, then he/she should notify the vice-president of the GSG Board of Directors who will investigate all credible allegations.
At all times, the privacy and reputation of individuals involved will be respected. If the person providing the information requests anonymity, this request will be respected to the extent that doing so does not impede any investigation.
The complainant will receive a follow-up report on their concern within two weeks. It will acknowledge that the concern was received, indicate how the matter will be dealt with and whether or not further investigations will follow.
Protection. Whistle-blowers risk their careers by reporting suspected illegal activities in an organization. No form of punishment, including firing, demotion, suspension, harassment, failure to consider the employee for promotion, or any other kind of discrimination, is allowed.
Punishing a whistle-blower in any way is a criminal offense. Even when an employee’s claims are unfounded, the nonprofit may not reprimand him. To receive whistle-blower protection, an employee does not have to demonstrate misconduct; a reasonable belief or suspicion that violation of a federal law exists is sufficient.
