Help Support This Important Ministry
Family Dynamics creates, maintains, and when needed, rescues life long love by expertly guiding individuals through our unique education and experiential learning processes. We dedicate ourselves to this calling as a faith-based nonprofit organization focused on the sanctity of traditional marriage.
What can I do?
The most important thing you can do for Family Dynamics Institute is pray. We will succeed in strengthening marriages and families only with God's guidance.
As a nonprofit, ministry-based service organization, we also need your financial support. One of the primary goals of Family Dynamics Institute is to make our life-changing resources accessible to as many couples, families, churches and partnering organizations as possible. This approach requires that we raise funds over and above those raised by seminar/workshop registrations and the sale (or to offset donation) of resources made available to couples and families in need.
We are a marketplace ministry, and the reality is, in order to counter what secular culture does to dilute the importance of traditional marriage and the family , we must compete with excellence - in curriculum development, presentation, marketing, and every aspect of making the products and services we produce, and the seminars and workshops we lead, the very best available. After all, we serve a God of excellence and He deserves the best we have. With your gifts, you help us achieve excellence.
How are funds used?
The Board of Directors at Family Dynamics Institute stands strong on the principle that the ministry exists for the sole purpose of saving and strengthening marriages and supporting families. Contributed funds fall into two categories: restricted and unrestricted. Restricted funds are used primarily to provide scholarships for couples who can't afford the full registration costs of attending one of our seminars or workshops. Restricted funds are also defined as funds earmarked for a specific purpose or function of the ministry. Unrestricted funds are used primarily to establish Family Dynamics Institute as a Comprehensive Marriage Ministry. This includes, but is not limited to, using unrestricted funds to supplement the development of new curriculum, improve existing material, reach new audiences, raise awareness, and accomplish the purposes of our cornerstone programs "A New Beginning" and "Dynamic Marriage." Unrestricted funds are also used to serve the day to day operation of the ministry. To insure proper use of funds, restricted and unrestricted funds are held in separate banking accounts.
How are funds and donors lists treated internally?
Family Dynamics Institute is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization. As such, all donations are tax-deductable to the full extent of Internal Revenue Codes, including, but not limited to, cash gifts, gifts in-kinds, properties, stocks, etc. Receipts are sent upon request, at regular intervals, or as directed by the IRS for tax your filing purposes.
We never rent or sell any of our lists to other organizations.
The confidential and personal relationship between donor and beneficiary is one we respect. The security and privacy of donors to Family Dynamics Institute are guarded through a number of organizational policies as well as computer security systems providing the utmost in protection.
What are my options?
Singular giving: A non-recurring gift of any amount to Family Dynamics Institute that is either restricted or unrestricted based on donor preference. Giving to Family Dynamics Institute more than once does not constitute a recurring gift; it is simply a gift that does not occur on a regular, scheduled basis.
Monthly (or scheduled) giving: A recurring, monthly or other regularly scheduled gift of any amount to Family Dynamics Institute that is either restricted or unrestricted based on donor preference. Many donors choose the simple solution of establishing an auto-draft donation scheduled through their bank account or credit card account, which we are set up to do. This type of arrangement also saves the ministry money by reducing the cost of mailings.
Gifts of Stock, estate planning, real estate, business interests, restricted securities, and other non-cash assets: These unique types of gifts require special arrangements and expertise and may be professionally managed, under donor's direction, by the Family Dynamics Institute Director of Development.
