The girls in the safe house not only have all their basic needs met, but they are able to attend high school, college, or receive their GED through a scholarship program. The team is also building additional programs like healing retreats, vocational training, and small business development to provide alternative employment and a new found hope to those that have come out of the bars and those still struggling to leave.

STEWARDSHIP

Adventures In Missions is an established 501(c) (3) non-profit missions organization.

Finances

Although most of our employees raise all or a portion of their own salaries, Adventures has ongoing material, administrative, and technological expenditures associated with keeping the ministry going. Great care is taken to make sure we conduct our finances with integrity.

Accountability

Fiscal transparency and accountability direct the financial actions of Adventures. We are members in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and commission an independent auditor to conduct a thorough annual audit. In addition, our board of directors meets regularly to regulate ministry management and performance. We also make our most recent audited Financial Statement available for public review.

Stewardship

Adventures is debt free. We work diligently to keep expenses low. As a ministry, we see the available resources as gifts to be judiciously administered. Our desire is to make the greatest eternal impact by making resources go as far as possible.

Wise Giving - Supporting Adventures in Missions

Adventures has been transforming lives through discipleship and missions since 1989. In the summer of 2012, we sent out our 100,000th missionary.

While we look back in awe of what the Lord has done, we also know that the harvest is great and we are invigorated by the opportunities to share the life, hope and love that only comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ and our brothers and sisters in Him. We are blessed to have partners who make it possible for missionaries to go into the field and share every day.

Lives are changing through Adventures - and we are impacting how the upcoming generation ministers. They are globally seeing the world as a community.

Whether considering taking a trip or partnering in another way, Chuck Day, one of our partners, says, “To me... it is an investment in your future. By me investing in them (Adventures) with my time and my finances and my efforts I am finding that I am receiving a rich reward, in the sense that I am helping equip those who are going out to make the change.”

Adventures founder, Seth Barnes believes “… about spiritual return on investment, I think that it’s a very high one here at Adventures.”

It is a new day in missions. People are being transformed while they are making a difference – all because of choosing to follow the call. What is your call? Will you choose to follow it with us? Nations are being changed!

" ...the Master directed that those who spread the Message be supported by those who believe the Message." - I Corinthians 9:14 (The Message)

Please give prayerful consideration to joining us by giving. Not sure where to start? Your gift to our Maximum Impact Fund allows the ministry to respond quickly as ministry opportunities unfold.

"Just as each of us have one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body and each member belongs to all the others." - Romans 12:4-5

Gratitude

We believe that being a good steward is being grateful and expressing it. We are thankful for the abilities and responsibilities we have been given. We are thankful for the freedom to worship the one true God in this country. We are thankful for the resources this ministry has been trusted with: the people, their giftings, the tools, our partners and relationships, and the finances the Lord has entrusted to us in order to do His work. We constantly pray for the wisdom to steward these blessings well and to express our gratitude in ways that glorify the Lord.

GIVE ITEMS

For those who want to give, cash is not always the resource that is most easily available. This being our inspiration, we recently set up a new method of giving so that donors have the ability to give items, assets and properties toward mission funding. This innovative method of giving is done through iDonate, an organization that specializes in creative donation services specifically for non-profits. Donors can give vehicles, cell phones, real estate and business inventory at the click of a button. This makes it easy to give non-cash items and have the same impact as if the gift was cash. Donors still receive a tax-deduction benefit from the donation of the non-cash item as long as the donation is made within the US. For more information, visit the Adventures pages of the iDonate website at www.idonate.com/aim-adventures-missions.

  3. Is my donation tax-deductible?
    Upon the close of each calendar year, Adventures sends donors an annual giving statement confirming tax deductibility in the U.S.

    Deductibility varies for other countries outside the U.S. and therefore it is the responsibility of any international donor to consult with their tax advisor as to the deductibility of their donation. Adventures is not incorporated in any country other than the U.S.
  4. Is my donation refundable or transferrable?
    As a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, the IRS regulations require that all tax-deductible contributions must be irrevocable and that any such organization must demonstrate full discretion and control of the donations. These regulations for Adventures in Missions are stated more fully in our Policies and Principles for Tax Deductible Donations.

  6. I'm having trouble donating online. Do you have any troubleshooting help?
    When experiencing difficulty making a donation online, we have a few suggestions that may help.
    • Try using a different browser, generally Firefox or Safari get better results than Explorer or Chrome.
    • If your credit/debit card billing or bank information do not exactly match your entry, the gift will not process.
    • eChecks must draw on a U.S. bank account, Canadian accounts will not process.
  7. I'm not sure how to designate my gift - can you help?
    We suggest that you give to the Maximum Impact Fund. This allows Adventures to use your gift where it is most needed. Your gift to this fund enables a quick response as ministry opportunities unfold.

    Please feel free to call or e-mail the Donor Relations Team if you would like further assistance or more information about other opportunities.
  8. Where do I go to give for the credit of a specific person?
    Select the role the person is fulfilling with Adventures: Staff or Trip Participant (World Race, Passport, Ambassador)

    Gifts may not be restricted for the benefit of a specific person, but if you give to an activity or purpose for which an individual is raising funds, that person will be considered preferred and thereby credited with the funds raised and allowed to participate in carrying out the applicable activity. Please see our policies for more information.
  9. What does it mean that staff or participants "raise support" or that they are performing deputized fundraising?
    Staff and participants appeal to their family, friends and communities on behalf of Adventures to provide the necessary resources for fulfilling their work, trip or project with Adventures in Missions. Gifts are given directly to the organization, allowing them to be tax-deductible.
  10. What accountability is in place to ensure the integrity of Adventures In Missions?
    Adventures is governed by a Board of Directors that meets to review the organization and its ministry. In addition, Adventures is a long-time member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. We believe in transparency and make our most recent audited Financial Statement available for review.

    The maximum amount for credit card donations is $5,000. There is no limit on the amount for a bank draft donation.

  13. Will Adventures accept a gift for a third party?
    Adventures cannot accept financial or non-financial contributions of any amount for third party organizations or individuals, nor can Adventures act as an intermediary for another organization in dispensing funds. Adventures cannot accept responsibility for administering or distributing such funds, or issue a receipt to the donor.

    Adventures in Missions can only accept gifts to Adventures and its related ministries. Gifts of all kinds, financial and non-financial, can be contributed to Adventures or toward staff or participant support.
