Historically, Faith In Practice has relied on the generosity of churches, mission volunteers and their families and friends to fund the entire mission program. Foundations and Corporations are also solicited for their support. Since our volunteers are asked to pay the majority of their own trip expenses, donations fund our programs' administrative costs. These costs include the purchase of medicines, equipment, transportation, tests and housing for our patients, shipping and crating, and general administrative expenses.
Each Volunteer is strongly encouraged to participate in the Share The Mission Fundraising Program for Faith In Practice by writing or emailing personal letters asking friends, family and professional colleagues to support our work through a variety of methods. This program is our most successful way of obtaining the funding needed to run the Faith In Practice programs while allowing team members to share the mission of Faith In Practice with family and friends.
Financial and partnership support also comes from countless others including hospitals and organizations that donate equipment, medicines, and supplies.
Faith In Practice has earned Charity Navigator's 4-star rating for the eight consecutive year.
"Only 1% of the charities we rate have received at least 8 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Faith in Practice outperforms most other charities in America. This “exceptional”designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Faith in Practice from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."
