2. Statement about Tax Deductible Gifts
Mission Quest is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in Chicago, IL. All donations to Mission Quest are tax-deductible as allowed by law. In accordance with IRS guidelines, tax-deductible contributions are made with the understanding that Mission Quest has complete control and discretion over the use of all funds for our stated purpose of Christian missionary work. Mission Quest has a standing policy to honor a donor’s preference for any of our pre-approved missionary outreaches.
3. Statement about Ministry Support vs. Public Solicitation & Charities
Mission Quest and its affiliated missionaries do not engage in public solicitation as outlined below. The requirement that some States have for Charity “registration” is designed to protect the public from scams and unauthorized public canvassing for funds. Some Charities hire commercial solicitors and fundraising companies to actively canvas the public for donations. Mission Quest does not. These efforts include things like purchasing mailing lists for mass mailings, organized telephone drives using public phone lists, door-to-door appeals, standing on street corners with buckets during Christmas, and other cold-call type methods. Any Charity or ministry engaged in these types of commercial appeals should follow the additional process for Charity registration. However, Mission Quest (and its affiliated missionaries) do NOT engage in those types of public canvassing. An MQ missionary who speaks in churches, receptions, support banquets, or even one-on-one appointments is not canvassing the public, but simply sharing with friends, acquaintances, and people who have voluntarily chosen to attend those Church and ministry functions. This is very different than public solicitation as described above.
