1. Does GoodSeed pay its staff a salary?
No. Missionaries trust the Lord to raise up a team of 60 individuals and churches to stand behind them, to pray for them, to encourage them and to support them financially.
2. How much of the money that I send actually goes to the missionary?
100% of donations to a missionary will go directly to that missionary. Administrative costs are not deducted from your donation.
3. What about administrative costs?
Undesignated gifts are used for general ministry purposes including administrative costs. In concert with our stewardship goals, every effort is made to minimize these expenses.
4. Who sponsors GoodSeed?
We rely on the gifts of individuals and churches that share our goals - they are our ministry partners. We are not sponsored financially by a denomination or any other affiliation.
5. Can I receive a receipt for tax purposes?
Yes. GoodSeed USA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations intended for the worldwide ministry of GoodSeed, including gifts designated for projects and missionaries, qualify for tax-deductible receipts. Receipts are issued to donors at the time donations are processed.
Yes. GoodSeed Canada is registered in Canada as a Charitable Organization (BN Registration Number: 88864 7179 RR0001).

Yes. Our missionary staff have many different needs for professional services. Please contact the office in your country for information on how you can help. Tax regulations differ from country to country.
9. Is GoodSeed a business or a ministry?
GoodSeed is a not-for-profit, faith-based ministry. GoodSeed is a ministry of the Lord. As such we believe we are stewards, not owners, of those resources God gives to us. Therefore, we must conduct ourselves with the highest integrity in the way we administer them.
10. How are proceeds from book sales used?
All proceeds from sales are put directly back into the ministry of GoodSeed, for reprints and ongoing projects. Income from sales is never sufficient to cover project expenses. We are happy to provide you with details of ongoing projects and the financial needs associated with them.
