A Unique Challenge and Opportunity
With God’s enabling, GCF aims to see the number of projects we service to continue to multiply. To attain these goals would mean that more and more people around the world are being reached with the gospel and becoming followers of Christ. That’s why we do what we do. GFC’s purpose is to facilitate the people and ministries that God is raising up to fulfill the Great Commission.
GCF employs the #1 fnancial software used by non-profts worldwide. The software provides GCF with a reliable, effcient, accurate tool for the numerous accounting functions it performs including handling of donations, payroll and benefts. This software also enables the missions individual or ministry to have secure 24/7 access to their online account where they can monitor each transaction.
To provide the services GCF offers requires dedicated specialists and experienced, professional staff. Annually, GCF secures the services of a National Charity Specialist Auditor (MNP) to conduct an audit of the Foundation. It also enlists a Charity & Tax Specialist lawyer to assist with CRA compliance issues. These two services alone would be cost prohibitive for the lone individual or ministry to use on their own. GCF also has its own professional accounting team that includes 2 CPAs and experienced, competent staff.
The Cost Savings Advantage
GCF’s aim is to help fulfill the Great Commission by enabling non-traditional missions models obtain these crucial administrative services that will free them up for ministry—but to do so at a modest, affordable cost. The administrative fee for handling donations, receipts, payroll, CRA compliance, and Benefits is only 6%. That means that 94%, the majority of donated funds, goes directly to the project or mission. That is a considerable savings from traditional missions that typically charge anywhere from 10 to 20% administrative fees.
Two thousand years ago the Lord Jesus Christ left his disciples with a far-reaching directive:
“Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations,” he said, “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.”
Two millennia later, how is that mandate, aka the Great Commission, working out?
Today, there are more than 7 billion people on Earth. An estimated 2 billion identify as followers of Jesus. Impressive, but much needs to be done. Though Christianity is the world’s leading religion, 5 billion people still have no relationship with Him. And in these turbulent times of wars, terrorism, and unrest, the need to take the gospel to the world is as urgent as ever.
