Action International Ministries (ACTION) is a Section 501 (c)(3) organization in the USA. ACTION is without financial guarantees or endowments from any organization. The mission and ministry is a faith work, supported by the prayers and financial gifts of churches and individuals.

All missionaries, whether overseas or in the home offices, trust the Lord for their financial support and ministry funds. Budgets are set by the mission, however ACTION is not responsible to raise the financial support of individual missionaries.

General Financial Information

  • Financial gifts for missionary support must be made payable to Action International Ministries with a notation telling how the gift is to be used.
  • Financial gifts can be given online by check or credit/debit card, or a check can be mailed to an ACTION office here
  • Donations of assets, stocks, or through your financial institution or adviser can be done over the phone by calling one of our offices here
  • All gifts for missionaries and ministry projects are receipted. Such receipts are valid in the USA and Canada for tax purposes. An acknowledgment, not valid for tax purposes, is sent for personal gifts, such as birthdays, anniversaries, or Christmas gifts.
  • All gifts received for a project or the support of a missionary are used as designated.
  • A levy is assessed on all donations to the mission in order to fund operation of the USA Office and International Office. For regular support and ministry contributions, it is between 10% and 13%, depending on whether the field administration also requests a percentage, which is capped at 3%. For example, the USA office receives 9.75% and the International Office .25% of this fee.
  • For the USA Office, on approved special projects, the levy remains the same for gifts under $5,000. However, on donations of $5,000 or more, the levy is reduced to 5%.
  • In Canada, special projects are usually levied at 8%. In the United Kingdom, 11% is charged on project donations under £250, and 5% on gifts of £250 or more. When a project’s financial target is met or the project has ended, any remaining funds, or future donations designated to that project, will be used for similar projects or needs at the discretion ACTION Canada.
  • Our Financial Department staff are happy to provide the precise percentages of the deduction for each individual situation to any donor upon request. ACTION Financial Reports and audits are also available upon request.
