JON & TATHIANA ELAM'S SUPPORT GOALOur personal support goal changes as our life-stage changes and, occasionally, as fluctuating exchange rates affect us. We try to remain as open as possible with our supporters and support contacts concerning our support goal. Please refer to the CONTACT page if you wish to contact me about any questions, doubts or inquiries concerning our support goal, process or inquires about beginning support. Please read below for more institutional information about supporting Campus Outreach.
See our 2015 Brochure complete with budget and support goal information.
FINANCIAL SUPPORTEach Campus Outreach staff member is responsible to raise support for the ministry. The amount raised is equivalent to the cost for that staff to cover his or her salary, administration fees, benefits package and ministry budget. Monthly or annual gifts are the primary form of financial support.
The Campus Outreach Financial Office in Birmingham, AL will track your giving and send you a receipt after each gift that shows your giving to date along with your pledge, and will also include a return envelope for your next gift, or you may opt for our Electronic Funds Transfer (automatic draft) or Online Giving option for more convenience. Administration costs are held to 9% of each staff member's support goal.
For donations to be tax-deductible, the IRS requires gifts be solicited with the following understandings:• Gifts are given to the ministry, not directly to the individual staff members or funds.• Donors may indicate their preference for the use of their gifts.• The ministry endeavors to use the gifts where suggested, but must retain complete discretion and control over the use of all funds.• Funds are controlled by the Board of Campus Outreach to be spent as needed for reasonable compensation & ministry expenses of staff members.
Online giving option: Please go to www.campusoutreach.org/donate/jon-elam for online giving options.
Mail-in option:Any checks for donations need to be made payable to Campus Outreach with Jon Elam - 2180 on the memo line and sent to the address below:Campus OutreachPO Box 43737Birmingham, AL 35243
NON-FINANCIAL SUPPORT OPTIONS
PRAYER: I do believe that prayer is as equally vital to this work as financial support. So please, if you take time to do anything on this site, please go to the BLOG page and petition the Lord on our behalf in respect to the most recent stories.
REFERRALS: The financial support needs are continuous, and referrals to others are the primary way for the needs to continually be met. If you know anyone who would be interested in hearing more about this ministry, with no obligation to giving, please see the CONTACT page and send me information concerning the new contact.
STATESIDE: Upon my return visits to the United States, I desire to meet with each and every supporter as time allows. This requires logistical arrangements with vehicles, lodging, cell phones, postal charges, and new referrals. This is up to the imagination of any supporter who wishes to provide any help as the Lord leads.
Also, I am eager to share with any group or function that would so desire.
