Where does my money go?
Twenty cents of every dollar is sent to the North American Mission Board. These funds are used to support hunger projects in the United States.
Eighty cents of every dollar is sent to the International Mission Board. These funds are used for direct hunger ministry as well as water well drilling, agricultural education, water purification, etc.
Why give to the WHF over other charities?
- Only the Southern Baptist World Hunger Fund uses 100% of all contributions to feed hungry people. (Personnel are already in place; thus, administrative and promotional costs are borne out of other budgets.)
- When Southern Baptists give food, they are there for the long haul, desiring to plant churches and make disciples for Jesus Christ. Our desire is to build relationships with people and eventually lead them to a relationship with Christ.
- The Good News of salvation through Christ is always foundational. Whenever possible, the plan of salvation is shared and an opportunity to respond is given.
- In emergency situations, food aid must be given. But when possible, hunger ministries are designed to create independence from rather than dependence on food aid.
