What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In our quest for the timely distribution of humanitarian, educational and evangelical resources to a lost and hurting world, HEART Ministries (HEART) has identified many fragile organizations currently involved in services which espouse the spirit of our stated mission, but who are barely managing to stay afloat. These organizations may be anywhere in the world, participating in educational, medical, feeding, clean water, human trafficking or child abandonment services in a Christian context. It is our desire to strengthen and stabilize these organizations by offering a means of attracting support and moving funds to points of need. In addition to the development of needed resources, we must also establish a personal relationship with all organization leaders to promote an environment of encouragement and accountability. Our immediate need is to meet all administrative costs while passing 100% of all gifts to the donor's designated organization(s).

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In our striving for the timely distribution of humanitarian, educational and evangelical resources to a lost and hurting world, Heart Ministries (HEART) seeks to identify existing organizations involved in services which espouse the spirit of our stated mission. These organizations may be anywhere in the world, participating in educational, medical, clean water, feeding, human trafficking or child abandonment services in a Christian context.
It is our desire to identify and/or develop both material and financial resources that would bias targeted organizations toward successful execution of their goals.
We would establish a partnering relationship with each accepted service entity;
I. A personal relationship would be fostered with leaders within each organization. Encouragement of these leaders would be a priority.
II. An accounting fund for each entity (or service cell within an entity) would be established to manage receipt of donations, and, disbursement of funds as requested by our service partners.
III. Each partner entity would be visited by a representative of HEART at least once every three years.
IV. Teams with varying areas of expertise would be dispatched when needed to address specific needs as requested by partners.
Use of volunteer staffing and outreach would be maximized.
If every organization with which we partner becomes more effective in their mission, then HEART will have accomplished its goals.
We are now seeking to strengthen the ability of HEART to respond in an even more timely way to the increasing number of requests for help. At the center of all HEART activity will be a new funding target, Heart of HEART.

Enhance our brand to reach organizations that may benefit from a partner relationship with HEART. This will expand our outreach, allowing us to address more need.

Assist our supported partners in the management and expansion of their donor base through our donor appreciation program. We currently manage gifts from donors who were already contributing to a supported partner. Now we will assist in each partner's fundraising effort.

We will use grants and other fundraising devices to cover administrative costs, thereby maximizing impact of designated gifts.

Recruit more qualified volunteers. This would minimize the need to consider compensated positions. It would also open the door to new partners.

Consider compensating full time CEO and Executive Director to increase leadership continuity, enhancing our search for funding, and, for opportunities to serve new partners.

Seek to strengthen the ability of HEART to respond in an even more timely way to the increasing number of requests for help. At the center of all HEART activity would be a new funding target, Heart of HEART, representing the full purpose to which we have been called.

Add Mission Travel as a department. Consistently monitor operations of supported partners and send teams to provide service support.

Use state of the art fund accounting that integrates with new donor management software.

Software currently in use; Office 365, TechSoup, Aplos Fund Accounting, Bloomerang Donor Management, Acrobat Pro S

Connections with a few dozen churches and some foundations, coupled with around 200 donors, sustain our current level of operation.

We now have a fulltime staff of two. Budget has grown from zero in 2010, to over $700,000 in contributions for FY 2021

HEART began in 2009, with the sole purpose of supporting a fledgling church and school in Port au Prince, Haiti. The church now has more than 600 parishioners and the school had a student enrollment of 159 at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. HEART remains their main source of support.

In 2011, HEART partnered with two doctors in India in support of their school and hostel. Student enrollment is around 500. In addition to academic studies the hostel students are taught to farm. They raise much of the food they consume.

We partnered with an orphanage in Mexico in 2013. Sixteen children currently call this orphanage home.

In 2017, HEART partnered with an organization in the USA, dedicated to supporting the rescue of trafficked and exploited women.

In 2017, we also began support of a doctor in Pakistan. His mission is to provide medical care and basic health education to the rural poor of his country.

Early in 2019, we partnered with two groups in Indonesia. They organize and support schools, art centers, TV productions, special needs education and much more.

In July of 2019, we partnered with a seminary in Pakistan.

In June 2020, we partnered with Master Builders Academy in Ngong, Kenya.

In support of these organizations, HEART maintains thirty-three fund accounts. These funds are supported by contributions raised both by HEART and the supported organizations. Funds are disbursed as requested by individual partners.
