Bob Pape is director of major gifts for CNEWA.
At CNEWA we take very seriously our obligation to inform our donors on four fundamental points.
First, we promptly acknowledge that your gift was received, and through our receipt and thank you letter, we acknowledge our appreciation for your sacrifice on our behalf. Many of you have also received handwritten notes from members of our staff or phone calls to thank you for your sacrifice. You have partnered with us in our mission and we want to let you know how appreciative we are of your prayers and support.
Second, we inform you that your donation was used for the purpose for which you intended; whether for the greatest need or a special project, humanitarian appeal, needy child support, religious sponsorship or as more recently seen in Syria, an emergency appeal for a particular group of people in dire need. Third, we will let you know the outcome of the project, appeal or support, so you can see the impact your donation had in the delivery of our mission. As a CNEWA partner, you have aright to share in our successes and to be informed of our continuing challenges. This all goes into the process of delivering on our mission. This all goes into being a partner of CNEWA.
Fourth, we inform you through our published financial statements of how much of every dollar spent by CNEWA goes directly to program or project support and how much is expended for administrative expenses.
We are grateful for your steadfast prayers and support and recognize the commitment you have made to us and the sacrifice incurred for such a commitment. Your right to know these fundamental points will always be upheld at CNEWA.
CNEWA does not receive any government funding.
On behalf of those we have the privilege of serving, THANK YOU.
