We knew God had put us in Orlando to do college ministry, but we had no organizational structure to process our donations, receipting, online giving, and ministry partner development. GSN provided the tools and the support we needed to do just that. Becoming an Associate through GSN has been a huge blessing for us, and gave us the time needed to focus on the ministry. Over the last couple years, it has enabled us to get our college ministry off the ground and given us the time we need to transition into our own 501c3. Thank you guys for all that you do to serve the Lord!
Tommy & CeCe Wong ~ SHIFT College Ministry
GSN has been an integral part of starting our ministry from the ground up. GSN allows our donors to experience the benefits and professionalism of a large ministry, even though they are supporting our small ministry. They have answered questions thoroughly and timely and went above and beyond. They truly have been a direct answer to our prayer and have proven to be God’s provision in developing our ministry. Thank you GSN for all you do!!
Michael & Kristin Cary ~ Living Truth Ministry
Who? ~ Individuals or a group looking to start (or maybe have) their own ministry, but not interested in running all the ins and outs of administering the non-profit. Looking to just focus on the mission and not the admin. You do not need to have your own 501c3.
We can process checks, e-checks, credit cards and stock gifts including reoccurring e-check and credit card gifts. We are able to process donations to multiple ministry designations under the same ministry.
We take care of receipting donors for their donations. For donors who desire to give a monthly check we send them a donation record, designation slip and return envelope after each check. For online donors receipts are sent electronically. All donors receive an end of the year giving statement to use for tax purposes. We also provide customer service to handle questions or concerns from donors via email or phone with most responses coming same day.
You will have online access to your database of donors and donations. We also send weekly emails detailing financial activity as well as current account balances. As with the donor service we provide customer prompt answers to your donor, donation and account questions via email or phone with most responses coming same day.
Each of our individuals or ministries have their own giving page that allows them to describe their ministry. You can link your giving page to your ministry web site.

You are not applying for and paying the cost of Solicitation Licenses in the states from which you receive funds. You are not paying the cost of developing an online presence with electronic giving options. . .
