Giving: Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  How are Encompass missionaries paid?
A.  Encompass is a faith-based mission in which the majority of its personnel depend on the Lord for the provision by raising 100% of their support. Teams of churches and individuals partner together with each missionary to provide their necessary prayer support, salary, and work expenses.

Q.  What percentage of my gift goes directly to the missionary or project?
A. Ninety-five percent. The other 5 percent is used to offset the administrative costs for the mission.

Q.  Are there fees related to credit card transactions?
A.  Yes. Credit card companies ask for approximately 3 percent of every transaction. This fee is then charged to missionary support. With this in mind, we encourage regular donors to take advantage of the convenience of Automatic Withdrawals (EFT) which is virtually free of costs.

Q.  How do I sign up for Automatic Withdrawals?
A.   Download the form here and mail it to us with the appropriate information.

Q.  How do I make changes to my Automatic Withdrawal agreement?
A.  Any changes of amount or fund designation must be submitted to Encompass in writing. E-mail Teresa Morgan at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., fax a request to 1-877-353-5313, or send a written request to:

Q.  Can I give directly to Encompass without giving to a specific missionary or project?
A.  Yes.  We rely on undesignated giving to offset some of the administrative costs of the mission.

Q.  Are my gifts tax-deductible?
A.  Donations for missionary support, global projects, and the International Missions Center are tax deductible. According to IRS guidelines, such gifts remain under the discretion and control of Encompass.

Q.  How do I make a gift “in memory of” or “in honor of” someone?
