Frequently Asked Questions
What does “Share the Gift” mean?
Some giving options are at a higher cost. “Share the Gift” allows you to combine your donation with others to fund the need. Any donation amount will be processed toward any gift category.
Can I sponsor a child?
No, gifts will not go directly to a sponsored child. Our missionaries and staff work to identify children and families with the highest need. We then strive to serve the community as a whole.
How are dollar amounts selected for gifts?
Most suggested amounts are actual current costs. Others such as “Share the Gift” are merely suggestions. We greatly appreciate any amount given.
Where do my donations go?
The gift categories shown here are the services provided by God’ Ministry in LaGonave. All designated gifts will be applied to the services selected. However, when we receive more funds for a given gift than can be used, we will apply those funds to the next most urgent need. Gifts should be given with the understanding that God’s Ministry in LaGonave has control over their use.
