How does FAIR decide where to become involved?
Obviously FAIR can't respond to all emergencies and needs as they happen in the hot spots around the world. Two main criteria are used:
1. Can FAIR guarantee that the aid will reach those most in need?
2. Will the giving of aid enhance existing ministries of evangelism/church planting or encourage such ministries to begin?
With whom does FAIR partner?
FAIR channels funds through our own Fellowship International missionaries or partnerships with other compatible relief focused agencies.
What percentage of FAIR funds are used for administration?
In order to assist with the promotion of projects and other FAIR functions, funds received are subject to an administration fee of between 10% and 15%.
Does FAIR receive matching grants from CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency)?
Occasionally, FAIR projects do qualify for CIDA grants. However, many FAIR projects are too closely identified with evangelism/church-planting projects to be acceptable for CIDA funding.
Have other questions?
Should you have any further questions we encourage you to contact the FAIR Coordinator by phone: 519-821-4830 ext. 225 or by e-mail.
