Frequently Asked Questions (Giving)

How do I log in and manage my giving?

With the Avant giving portal, you can manage your gifts, view giving history, make changes to gift frequency, credit card information, and more.

Click the Login icon on the upper right of any web page. Then a window will appear that allows you to either log in to an existing account, or to sign up for a new one.

If you have any questions or issues with this process, or if you need a duplicate or corrected donation receipt, we are here to help! Reach out to us at [email protected], or by phone at 800.468.1892 (US office) or 866.812.8268 (Canada office).

Are All Donations Tax-deductible?

We provide tax-deductible receipts for all financial contributions to an Avant missionary or project given through Avant Ministries as allowed by law. Cash or checks written and given directly to a missionary are not eligible for a tax-deductible receipt.

Avant is committed to using funds in accordance with donor preferences. Per board policy and government regulations, spending of donated funds is limited to board-approved programs and projects. Each gift for a project will be used with the understanding that in the event the project is overfunded or unable to be completed for reasons beyond our control, gifts will then be used for similar board-approved projects.

If donating by check, please make payable to Avant Ministries, and if applicable, indicate the specific missionary or project in an attached note. In compliance with government regulations, the tax-deductible portion of your gift is made with the understanding that Avant Ministries has complete control over the use of the donated funds.

Can I directly support the work of Avant Ministries?
Yes! In fact, Avant depends on direct gifts to sustain a portion of its operations, and to grow the mission for the future. You may partner directly in the global work of Avant by designating gifts to "Where Most Needed." Write in project # 71005 on your gift check, or click here to give online to this fund.

These gifts are crucial in enabling Avant to accomplish the mission of planting and developing churches in the unreached areas of the world.
How do I make a memorial or honorarium gift?
To make a gift “in honor” of or “in memory” of a family member or friend, make the check payable to Avant Ministries and include “in memory (in honor) of (person's name)” in the memo line. You can also request that others make a gift to Avant Ministries in memory of your loved one.

Contact the Donor Relations Team with any questions.
How much support do Avant missionaries need?
Each missionary's budget is unique. Required funding amounts can vary significantly, affected by such factors as specific ministry types and significant variations in cost of living between countries. Information about a specific missionary's financial need and support level is available by request from the Avant office. Use our contact form to contact the Donor Relations Team in Kansas City or Winnipeg.
What percentage of each gift goes to the missionary or project?

Avant directs as much of your gift as possible toward the project or missionary you want to support. For gifts to a missionary account or project, 11.5% is dedicated to administration and missionary support services. For affiliate workers and funds raised through the Development department, this amount is 14%.

Among other things, these funds allow Avant to provide the following for our missionaries:

  • Godly leadership that unites the organization with a common vision
  • Recruitment of new missionaries
  • Training for newly appointed missionaries
  • Ongoing training for missionary teams and team leaders
  • Member Care for missionaries
  • Accounting and financial administration
  • Technical services for headquarters and field missionary personnel
  • Healthcare plan and administration for home office staff and field missionaries
How secure is donor data?
