Nation-2-Nation is mission-driven. For every person who works and volunteers in this ministry, it's not just a job or just another volunteer opportunity. It's a true passion. We hope that passion is expressed in the work we do. We hope that it is also seen in how we use the resources that God provides through the generous support of Nation-2-Nation's donors.
The inspiration for Nation-2-Nation's financial strategy is the parable of The Ten Minas in Luke 19. Our goal is to always use the ministry's finances where they are most strategic and effective in achieving the mission and vision God has given us and where they generate the greatest return of souls saved for His Kingdom by equipping every Christian to reach the lost for Christ.
Broadly speaking, Nation-2-Nation's expenditures can be broken down into three broad categories:
Program Services: These are funds spent to directly achieve the ministry's mission. This category includes funds spent to build the N2NCU curriculum, translate it into new languages, start schools around the world, and help fund training in the poorest regions of the planet.
Administration and Oversight: These are expenses associated with the operation and oversight of a non-profit organization. It includes funds spent on legal compliance, financial services, bookkeeping and accounting, and payroll services.
Fundraising: These are funds spent on fundraising and donor communication. These expenses include newsletters and mailings, fundraising-related travel, and this website.
According to Charity Navigator, a reputable nonprofit should spend 25-35% or less on fundraising and administrative costs combined.
Over the last five years (2018-2022), N2N has spent an average of 86% of all funds directly on Program Services. And, on average, only 14% has been spent on overhead expenses.
Our long-term goal is to consistently spend at least 80% of ministry funds directly on Program Services
