I have got this question a few times, so I thought I would address it here. A percentage of the total amount raised goes back to the website company. I am also not sure if there are ways to pledge monthly amounts or not.
Regardless, ITeams provides accounts for all of their employee’s ministries, which allows for tax deductible donations. ITeams adds 15% to the funds needed to be raised to be included in a GSF account at ITeams. This account is used to help ITeams continue to operate on a global scale and to continue to grow.
If I used a funding website as well, I would need to raise more than I would than if I just used ITeams’ ministry account. I am sticking with the fundraising information I was given during my ITeams Orientation.
