Frequently Asked Questions
What does One Collective believe about giving?
One Collective is funded by the generous financial partnership of individuals, churches, and foundations. As stewards of God's resources, we believe in treating the supporters of this ministry as partners, friends, and team members. We carefully and ethically handle the gifts entrusted to us by maintaining appropriate systems of accountability and by seeking to maximize their intended use. We are a charter member of the ECFA.
In more than 40 communities around the world opportunities exist to support individuals and families serving with One Collective. Donors may support the ministries of One Collective in a variety of ways.
Are my gifts tax deductible?
Generally, yes. Since One Collective is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your donations to One Collective are tax deductible. However, personal gifts given directly to our field staff are not tax deductible.
Can One Collective accept gifts from outside of the United States?
We are able to receive a gift from anywhere in the world if it is made using a credit card that we accept. However, we can issue a tax receipt for United States tax purposes only.

What about financial accountability?
One Collective is a charter member of the ECFA, and abides by all its strict requirements. An independent certified auditor conducts a full audit of our books every year. An independent Board of Directors conducts a budget approval process and review of finances annually. One Collective complies with all federal, state, and IRS regulations, submitting a 990 form annually. One Collective maintains the highest possible charity ratings with GuideStar and Charity Navigator.
What happens with the financial support that's raised? Where does it go?
Donors make tax-deductible gifts to One Collective for the ministry of One Collective. For long-term and mid-term workers, donations are allocated to the worker in the form of one-time set up costs and a monthly salary. For short-term workers those donations are allocated in the form of a monthly stipend. In conjunction with our HR/Finance Departments, each worker/worker family that serves with One Collective creates an individualized budget that is determined by the location of service, the type of ministry, the housing and transportation needs, etc. of each worker or worker family. Based on this approved budget, the worker receives a salary (stipend if short-term) to cover the aforementioned expenses. A portion (15%) of the financial support that has been donated is allocated to a general ministry fund called the Global Service Fund (GSF). These funds are designed to contribute towards the administration of the global ministries of One Collective. The worker is responsible for raising the full budget amount before leaving for the field. One Collective is a member of the ECFA. Please contact our Finance Department at 847-429-0900 if you have further questions.

As a charter member, since 1980 we have upheld these high standards continuously. In addition, each year our Board of Directors reviews the results of our financial statement audit which is performed by an independent auditing firm.
