Financial Integrity & Gospel for Asia

Our Commitment to You

GFA is firmly committed to good stewardship of the funds entrusted to us by our friends and donors. For 40 years, we, as a ministry, have been committed to honoring Christ in how we share His message of grace and mercy and how we steward the finances entrusted to us.

For 40 years

we have been committed to honoring Christ in how we steward the finances entrusted to us.

GFA is committed to honoring the Lord and your generosity by investing the maximum amount possible into programs that benefit people in spiritual and physical need throughout the world in Christ’s name. Currently, an assessed portion of each donation is used to help cover administrative expenses.

GFA retains discretion to use donated funds in any manner that serves the charity’s objectives, regardless of any particular designation, but we do so knowing your donation is a sacred trust that requires careful stewardship.

Because of our commitment to financial integrity, we have an ongoing process of internal review. We actively work to update our internal systems and procedures to meet best practices for Christian charities.

Some highlights of how your donations helped the people of Asia in 2018:

  • 241,732 families were helped through Christmas gifts.
  • 290,753 women received free health care training to equip them to take care of their families.
  • 61,880 women learned how to read and write.
  • Over 11,000 women received vocational training.
  • 360,000 mosquito nets were distrubuted.
  • Over 250,000 blankets were given away.
  • 1,132 medical camps were conducted in remote or needy communities.
  • 4,712 Jesus Wells were installed in communities needing clean water.
  • 11,451 BioSand water filters were given to families and individuals.
  • 6,431 toilets were installed in needy communities.
  • Most of all, more than half-a-million people put their trust in Jesus.

Some of our best practices include the following:

  • We, and the members of our staff, subscribe to a written statement of faith upholding the historic biblical Christian doctrine. Faith in Christ, according to the Bible, is the objective of our financial policies and practices.
  • We subject ourselves to annual and independent financial audits in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. GFA contracts with an auditing firm that is well equipped to assist the ministry in navigating the increasingly complex demands presented by the varying international environments within which we operate.
  • Our guiding Scripture for all our fundraising efforts is 2 Corinthians 8:5, "They gave themselves first to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God" (NKJV). We believe that people should respond to us according to God’s leading in their life; therefore, we reject pressuring and manipulating people to give to the Lord's work.
  • Donations to the ministry are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. We issue receipts for all gifts unless otherwise instructed.
  • We respect the privacy of our ministry partners, and therefore, do not sell or rent their information to any third-party entities. We go to great lengths to keep secure the names and addresses of all our friends.
  • We have an agreement with our field partners that allows GFA to efficiently deploy resources and communicate clearly regarding the use of all resources.

We strive to ensure that all our work is accomplished according to standards that are above reproach.

Gospel for Asia Lawsuit Update and Conclusion

Gospel for Asia recently settled a class action lawsuit that included unsubstantiated allegations such as only 13 percent of the donations given to Gospel for Asia had actually made it to the field, making it particularly notable that the settlement agreement explicitly states that all donations given to the ministry did indeed make it to field.

Specifically, section 9.2.2 of the agreement reads, “The Parties also mutually stipulate that all donations designated for use in the field were ultimately sent to the field.”

During the legal proceedings, we retained one of America’s big four accounting firms to conduct an objective analysis of the flow of Gospel for Asia funds to the field. It took an enormous amount of time and money. They concluded that all the money given had made it to the field—a conclusion we knew to be true from the very beginning.
