FUNDING not only seek to help in the raising of funds strictly for evangelical causes but mean to also ensure that only evangelical Christian givers are encouraged to give. This is something that has been found missing either in part or entirely from professed Christian crowdfunding currently exant.
FUNDING also seeks to present a valid platform for every single saint with an evangelical needy cause regardless of their country of location. We mean to exhaust all available channels to ensure that donations receivced are forwarded to their needy campaigners. For we are not in this just to make easy ROI (by ministering only to contries/nations envolving the least husstles) but to minister to saints in season or out of season.
While we would love to bridge this gab free of charge, we sadly much levy a small fee to help with running costs for the service platform. Due to RSA’s (the counrty we operate from) governing laws, we are not allowed to charge a percentage based fee – instead we must charge a fixed going rate per hour. You can however be rest assured that it shall indeed be a small fee – just enough to keep the platform running. How much this shall be has yet to be determined and disclosed hereon.
FUNDING seeks to provide no more than an ordinary platform. One that does not claim to void the need of prayer of faith. We therefore, as with most if not all professed Christian crowdfunding platforms, employ no extreme and fallen publicizing measures such as social share buttons. I say extreme and fallen because I neither find social medias Christian friendly nor a necessities for a Christian’s well being. The foregoing are the main publicizing measures we shall adopt in the ordinary:
- We expect to commend ourselves to evangelical Christian givers visiting. Who should then bookmark the site and for their future alms-giving needs.
- We shall use the “Pay Per Click” advertising through carefully picked keywords to ensure that only quality traffic is driven over.
The main aim of reviewing submitted help requests is to filter out those that will fail to demonstrate godly virtue in their nature or purpose. Either by lack of just scriptural grounds (for philtrophic causes). Or proving to be heretic in their purpose (for Gospel bases causes). Therefore, if you as the compaigner are evangelical Christian, chances are you will submit justifyable/evangelical help requests.
While we do not contend to be the only evangelical Christian crowdfunding platform online, it was because we could not find one that FUNDING was incepted. If you care to maximize the chances of being funded with clean money (and every true saint should care), then we can promise you exactly that this platform. For Christian never wants to avail relief regardless of what the reliever’s source funds be. But must care and desire relief not from acursed funds. Below are the professed Christian platforms we had a chance to look at (and found them seriously wanting in one way or the other).

Please kindly note that we felt that discussing all-inclusive crowdfunding platforms was not worth the time. So only professed Christian platforms were applicable for the subject in question. For more information on the dangers of using all-inclusive as well as compromised professed Christian platforms, kindly see this blog post.
If you are an evangelical Christian, then you should never wish to give alms merely for to relieve a need but also to secure God’s honor (who demands this virtue of us). For which reason you should ever want to make certain that you bestow your funds on causes and cases worthy of God’s honor. And one of our prime concerns is to curate compaigns or help requests that demonstrate the evangelical quality. Be it a philatrophic or Gospel propagation cause.
While the platform is setup in manner that anyone can give, we must contend that the main goal of the platform above relieving the needy is to secure God’s honor and glory. Since alms giving is not honorable to God only by virtue. For this reason we encourage givers to try and identify themselves with the below.
- Be an evangelical Christian – simply a biblical Christian with a healthy relationship with the Christ of God and his Holy Spirit
- Be satisfied that your source of funds is clean. This will naturally be the case if you are indeed evangelical in your Christian position.
- Be willing to give – for the Lord loves a cheerful giver
- Be meaning to give both to relieve as well as securing God’s honor and glory, and thereby lay in store threasures in heaven.
- Be willing to remain anonymous in your giving (except in cases where it is necessary to be identified – particularly to your beneficiary).
- Be fully persuated of your giving decision – else we suggest you pray about it.
We have also included the following note on the checkout page in further attempt to minimize deceived givers.
“Please do kidly note (or be reminded) that unless if your heart can bear witness that you are a truly repented Christian who is zealous about the Lord’s holiness, this act of charity giving shall not be remembered by him. Also, do kindly further note that in favor of acceptable Christian giving, givers shall remain unknown to the public (admins excluded).”
FUNDING seeks to present a valid platform before every single saint with an evangelical needy cause or gift – regardless of their country of location. We mean to exhaust all available channels to ensure that donations are forwardable to their needy campaigners – no matter. In the worse cases, we will refund every cent to their resepective donors.
While it is was our wish to foward donations received to their respective campaigners in realtime, we are curently limited by systems and must pool all funds together in our Paypal account. Compagners are however welcomed to email us at anytime to request a payout of any balance on their campaign or help-request account at a given time.
Funds shall be paid out to the campaigner’s Paypal account where applicable/available. Or else the campaigner can advise as to what other online services are application for their location. And we should then endeavour to accordingly forward the funds through any of such service. Unfortunately, incurred forwarding fees will need to be absorbed from the tranferrable amount.
