Financial Policy

We gratefully accept donations with the understanding that up to 14% of all donations, restricted and non-restricted, may be used for the effective administration and promotion of SAM Ministries.

Spending of funds is confined to programs and projects approved by the organization. Should a donor choose to restrict a contribution for use in a particular program or project, we will honour that restriction, with the understanding that, when the need for such a program or project has been met or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by the organization, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed.

Due to the fact that donations to programs are often restricted giving, it is understood that to meet the accommodation needs for program staff, these programs will require an allocation of funds (set by the board annually as needed) to the general fund to cover these expenses.
