Many have asked me how we are funded. We do NOT get government funds (don't want any because of strings attached.) We are supported primarily through individual gifts/donations from caring friends of the homeless. We have three (3) churches who support us regularly as well. There have been a few friends who have donated large sums of money (one for $17K), but most of the support comes from partners giving between $10 and $250 per month. The average monthly support is about $30 per partner.
As for fundraising activities, there are none. We send out a newsletter about once or twice a year. Here is our fundraising "technique": We pray to the "boss", God; He hears us and speaks to people He has blessed, and many of His kids, hear Him and obey. There are others who give and do not know that God has spoken to them, they just feel that it is a good thing to help those in need. There is a saying that "what goes around, comes around". In other words, whatever you do, say etc, comes back to you - whether good or bad. This saying is true because it is based on a spiritual principle found in the Word of God . . . you reap what you sow (good or bad).
