Our covering organization, Commission To Every Nation, receives all funds donated to Fishers of Men. CTEN issues tax receipts to donors and then distributes the funds to FOM at the end of each month. CTEN is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and has been awarded six consecutive 4-star ratings (highest possible) by Charity Navigator.
Important Note: There is a difference between donating to Fishers of Men and donating to one of the individual missionaries on our church planting team (Chris and Erin, Dave and Rhonda, Nick and Sarah A, or Sarah S). Gifts given through CTEN and designated ‘Fishers of Men’ go towards projects such as well drilling and do not help the individual missionaries personally in any way. Gifts given through CTEN and designated to one of the individuals/couples named above support that missionary’s personal food, housing, and general living expenses and do not help Fishers of Men as an organization in any way. Both types of donations are important and are very appreciated. We wanted to make sure you know the difference, though, before you give.

How is Fishers of Men accountable for the use of funds donated?
In order to be an organizational partner of CTEN, FOM is required to send CTEN a regular accounting of all funds donated to us through them. This allows CTEN to ensure the funds are being used for their intended purpose.
Does Fishers of Men receive all funds donated to you through CTEN?
If we were to receive the funds directly ourselves, we would invest a lot of time and money setting up a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the U.S. and doing the accounting. Instead, we let CTEN invest their time and resources to do this for us so we can focus on the ministry at hand. In return, we allow CTEN to retain a reasonable percentage of what is donated in order to cover their accounting overhead.
