How is Unbound Grace funded?
Unbound Grace is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit and all or our work is made possible by the gifts of private donors and churches. Our modest budget has limited overhead. Your gifts translate directly into mission and ministry. We depend on you.
Why would someone want to support Unbound Grace?
If someone close to you has experienced addiction then you understand. Breaking the habit, lifestyle, dependency or pattern of abuse takes more than willpower. The struggle goes deep; all the way to the heart. Unbound Grace focuses on that deeper struggle and the journey to true hope and freedom.
It takes a relatively small amount of money to fund our work. In a very concrete sense, Unbound Grace is a good investment. We’ve been able to do a lot with a little, and have every intention of continuing to do so. The more funding, the more we can pursue.
We are devoted to sharing the hope and rescue of the Cross in an increasingly addictive world. Unbound Grace is placed in a unique position to share faith, hope and love in the wilderness of addiction – which is very exciting!
But more important than all that, we believe the Gospel is the word of life. It has certainly been such in my struggle with addiction and in a world obsessed with achievement and distraction, the message of God’s Unbound Grace needs to be heard. Suffering people need the rescue that only the Savior can provide. They need to hear about their savior! We need to hear about our savior. We cannot do this without you!
If I decide to support unbound grace, where does my money go?
It goes into our operating fund, which goes straight to ministry and mission. There are no development costs or administration. Other than our accountant (who personally supports the ministry), everything is done in house, even our offices are donated. If you were to break down our budget, about 35% goes toward programming and the rest toward salaries, which is standard for non-profit organizations. All gifts are fully tax-deductible.
What is the best way to support Unbound Grace financially?
Automatic monthly giving is the most helpful way you can support Unbound Grace. Like church pledges, it is income we can count on which makes the biggest difference. No amount is too small. We have folks that give $5/month and those that give more. You may sign up on our Support page. ANYTHING is an encouragement!
Of course, some prefer to give one-time gifts and that is wonderful too. You may give through your bank, debit card or credit card on our Support page. If you would prefer to do so by check, you may mail your gift, made out to “Unbound Grace” to 1764 Shades View Ln, Birmingham, AL 35216. Each and every donation is deeply appreciated.
Finally, a few churches consider Unbound Grace to be an important outreach! Important enough to include in their missions budget. I would love to sharing in person about the ministry or fill out whatever forms are needed to help make that possible. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know how to connect with your church.
