What is Shepherd's Staff?
Shepherd's Staff Mission Facilitators is our missions agency, which will serve as our employer as we work overseas. They serve us through providing accounting and administrating our financial donations, taxes and insurances.
What will donations be used for?
Your donation will help with our basic cost of living, ministry expenses, and insurances.
How much do you need?
We currently have a goal of $3000/month.
Is my donation tax-deductable?
Yes. You must donate through Shepherd Staff and they will send you an annual statement. Our account is #2020.
Can I send you money directly?
No. Shepherd Staff serves as our employer overseas, and part of our partnership is to shuttle 100% of our donations through them. Because of all the legalities of being foreign workers, their service of handling our taxes among other legal processes serves as a protection for us. They also provide accountability that all our financial accounting is done properly. Simply put; they help us stay out of legal complications and make sure our finances and paperwork are properly accounted for.
How much of a cut does Shepherd's Staff take?
10% or no more than $450/month. We believe that this fee is minimal considering all the monthly accounting they keep track of on our behalf. If we had to do it all ourselves, it would significantly deter us from focusing on our calling as we serve the people of the Philippines. This 10%, in actuality, does serve us too in this regard.
