The needs of the Mission vary day to day and season to season. Feel free to call us at 541-779-1597 for our current needs.
How much of the money given to the Medford Gospel Mission is used for fund-raising purposes?
We are committed to keeping fund-raising costs as low as possible. Our only cost of fund-raising is our monthly newsletter which we send only to people that subscribe. This cost is going down as more people are receiving an email copy of the newsletter rather than the print edition. We also send out one mass-mailing a year in the Rogue Valley. The cost of these newsletters and postage is under 5.5% of money donated to the Mission. This means that over 94% of donated funds is invested directly in caring for people in need.
The Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance Standards for Charity Accountability states that fundraising expenses should be no more than 35% of all related contributions. The Medford Gospel Mission falls far below these maximum amounts.
Do you participate in telemarketing or door to door solicitation?
No, we do not solicit financial donations on the phone or at your door.
Will you pick up my donation?
Yes, if you are unable to bring the donation to us we would be more than happy to set up a time to pick it up.
Call us at 541-779-1597 to arrange a time.
