Upon the close of each calendar year, Adventures sends donors an annual giving statement confirming tax deductibility in the U.S.
Deductibility varies for other countries outside the U.S. and therefore it is the responsibility of any international donor to consult with their tax advisor as to the deductibility of their donation. Adventures is not incorporated in any country other than the U.S.
As a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, the IRS regulations require that all tax-deductible contributions must be irrevocable and that any such organization must demonstrate full discretion and control of the donations. These regulations for Adventures in Missions are stated more fully in our Policies and Principles for Tax Deductible Donations.
Select the role the person is fulfilling with Adventures: Staff or Trip Participant (World Race, Passport, Ambassador)
Gifts may not be restricted for the benefit of a specific person, but if you give to an activity or purpose for which an individual is raising funds, that person will be considered preferred and thereby credited with the funds raised and allowed to participate in carrying out the applicable activity. Please see our policies for more information.
Staff and participants appeal to their family, friends and communities on behalf of Adventures to provide the necessary resources for fulfilling their work, trip or project with Adventures in Missions. Gifts are given directly to the organization, allowing them to be tax-deductible.
We are happy to verify gifts and complete any paperwork required by matching gift companies. Please be aware that we have no control over eligibility regulations and cannot guarantee that any gift will be matched or the date the matching gift will be received.
Adventures cannot accept financial or non-financial contributions of any amount for third party organizations or individuals, nor can Adventures act as an intermediary for another organization in dispensing funds. Adventures cannot accept responsibility for administering or distributing such funds, or issue a receipt to the donor.
Adventures in Missions can only accept gifts to Adventures and its related ministries. Gifts of all kinds, financial and non-financial, can be contributed to Adventures or toward staff or participant support.
No, we do not share your personal information with any other organizations. Our website and our database are on secure sites. We take care to protect your privacy.

Finances Adventures In Missions is an established 501(c) (3) non-profit missions organization. We work diligently to keep expenses low. As a ministry, we see the available resources as gifts to be judiciously administered. Our desire is to make the greatest eternal impact by making resources go as far as possible.
Although most of our employees raise all or a portion of their own salaries, Adventures has ongoing material, administrative, and technological expenditures associated with keeping the ministry going. Great care is taken to make sure we conduct our finances with integrity.
Accountability Fiscal transparency and accountability direct the financial actions of Adventures. We are members in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and commission an independent auditor to conduct a thorough annual audit. In addition, our board of directors meets regularly to regulate ministry management and performance. We also make our most recent audited Financial Statement available for public review.
Wise Giving Having sent over 110,000 missionaries since 1989, we know the harvest is great. We are invigorated by the opportunities to share the life, hope and love that only comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ and our brothers and sisters in Him. We are blessed to have partners who make it possible for missionaries to go into the field and share every day.
Gratitude We believe that being a good steward is being grateful and expressing it. We are thankful for the abilities and responsibilities we have been given. We are thankful for the freedom to worship the one true God in this country. We are thankful for the resources this ministry has been trusted with: the people, their giftings, the tools, our partners and relationships, and the finances the Lord has entrusted to us in order to do His work. We constantly pray for the wisdom to steward these blessings well and to express our gratitude in ways that glorify the Lord.
