JMI Financial Policies
Justice & Mercy International (JMI) is a faith-based, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that exists to make justice personal for the poor, the orphaned and the forgotten of the world.
Please be aware that all financial contributions toward a sponsorship of any kind through JMI are received into our general fund and are not considered as designated giving. JMI has elected to treat all contributions as undesignated gifts to minimize our administration costs for legal and accounting burdens that accompany designated gifts, thereby ensuring that the kids receive the greatest possible value from the donated funds. Treating your gift as undesignated also provides JMI with flexibility in managing donated funds in a way that serves the best interests of our kids and programs, and to meet the most critical needs, some of which include desperately needed improvements to orphanage facilities and services. It also helps prevent any misunderstanding among the kids, staff and sponsors, with respect to authority and accountability issues that might otherwise arise. While sponsorship benefits vary according to the individual needs of sponsored children, local resources and other considerations, the benefits described with each type of sponsorship express our best intentions to apply your giving in the most faithful means possible.
Mission Trip Payments
JMI recognizes all mission trip team registration fees as tax deductible and non-refundable—whether funds are given to cover the donor’s trip costs or those of a tribute. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that JMI has complete discretion and control over the use of all donated funds.
