Our Stewardship of Your Gifts
FARM STEW takes stewardship very seriously.
We believe in the value of hard work and we help people in ways that do not create dependency. We know that donated funds are the result of sacrificial love. Because of that, we make sacrifices too!
In the US, we are mostly volunteers, working out of our homes, dedicated to mobilize our growing African staff. In Africa, we also are committed to volunteerism. While our African trainers are paid, full-time staff, they are motivated by the cause and Christ alone.
We are committed to total transparency and fiscal responsibility.
Our volunteer bookkeeper is Mennonite farmer who spent decades as a church treasurer and preparing taxes for H&R Block. Our CPA has also become a donor. We think that says a lot!
We received the GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency and our 990's are available on our profile here.
Your trust is so important to us. We are committed to preserve it by our stewardship of YOUR gifts.
Ultimately everything is God's and we manage your gifts accordingly.
We are motivated to someday hear the words, "well done, good and faithful servant."
By your generous gifts we also feel confident you will hear, "In as much as you did it unto the least of these, you did it unto me." (Jesus in Matthew 25:31-45)
