How Funds are Spent

In consultation with our Guatemalan Coordinators, we invest in projects that fit our mission and purpose, which is “helping people reach their God-given potential”, focusing on the rural Mayan Pokomchí of Guatemala. This includes but is not limited to: health services, construction of rain water collection tanks and latrines, community education, and gospel outreach.

Our international administrative costs are only 5% of total budget; therefore 95% of funds go directly to Guatemala. (2015 Breakdown of Expenditures)

We do not typically provide “gifts” to donors; however, we always mail thank you cards to acknowledge donations and gifts. We endeavor to be good stewards of the funds God has entrusted to us through you. We seek God’s guidance in order to use these funds wisely at all times.

Donations directed to specific projects are used for that project until the need is met, at which time surplus funds are kept in the general fund to be used where needed most.
