What is GCF about? GCF is comprised of a team of skilled administrative and accounting personnel using their talents and expertise to enable people to follow God’s calling to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. GCF works exclusively with Christian ministries and projects in a dynamic cooperative relationship. GCF is a registered Canadian charity with Canada Revenue Agency and works as a team, with our Agents, towards a common goal: the advancement of the Christian faith, the advancement of education, and the relief of poverty.
Who are the Agents of GCF? Individuals, churches, and organizations who need help with receipting donors or with efficient administrative support. Sometimes getting a ministry off the ground is daunting. GCF can provide a hand up to help get ministry activated from dream to reality. Sometimes administrative needs change, experienced bookkeepers retire, or costs start to soar. GCF can play our part by taking those pieces off your hands to allow the ministry to thrive. GCF can also quickly and easily become the Canadian branch of ministries outside of Canada and take care of their Canadian supporters. We are committed to being a help where it’s needed with the goal of helping fulfill the Great Commission.
How does GCF help Agents? GCF provides a type of administrative backbone for ministries. No more headaches about receipting donors… we can provide a personalized donation page for your website, online fundraising tools and online and offline giving support with full receipting services managed by our professional Donations team. Our team also provides front-line phone support to your donors ensuring that your supporters receive the best service possible. No more worrying about what you need to provide to Canada Revenue Agency and it’s changing requirements… GCF staff stay informed of charitable compliance standards and will educate and inform you of the requirements so CRA compliance doesn’t become overwhelming. GCF has a team of Representatives who serve as the single point of contact for each Agent – project and/or ministry – to establish efficient ways to report ministry activity and to monitor any areas of risk. GCF’s Agent Representatives enjoy the opportunity to build relationships with their Agents – ministry and project leaders – desiring to help them see their ministry flourish while also assisting them to meet compliance requirements with CRA.
Are there other areas that GCF can help? GCF allows you to spend less time on Bookkeeping and Accounting and more time following your passion and fulfilling God’s call on your life. Tracking income and expenses for the ministry, for auditors and for CRA reporting can be very time-consuming and often frustrating. Experienced GCF staff can give Agents some relief. Agents get 24/7 online access to easily see reports, keeping up-to-date with their ministry’s finances. You may also be able to utilize GCF’s Payroll & Benefits services, with the added advantage of medical and dental benefits, as well as, group insurance rates and optional RRSP.
GCF is a charity that helps charitable projects and organizations thrive in their ministry goals by doing what we do really well. If you think GCF can help your ministry, give us a call and let’s see if there’s a way to serve together.
