2. Will my credit card donation be safely protected on the internet?
Yes. We are protected by 128-bit encryption technology. Your information is not accessible via the website. Your credit card number (or bank account number, which is used for automatic charges/withdrawals) is fully protected and kept private. It is used only to process your contributions following your specific instructions.
3. Does Christian Aid sell books, gadgets, information or services?
No. We will not contact you in a business relationship asking for money in exchange for some object or business service. As a non-profit organization we operate solely on the free will offerings of those who wish to help the work of indigenous missions.
IMPORTANT: If you are contacted by someone via phone, mail or email who claims to be doing non-mission related business in the name of Christian Aid, or claims to be an overseas Christian Aid employee or representative, do not respond. See #4 below:
4. What should you do if you receive an offer for something too good to be true that includes a reference to Christian Aid?
There are many scams circulating over the internet, and some of the individuals say they work for Christian Aid. They do not. Christian Aid is not selling anything like purebred dogs, not renting apartments, and not giving away random grants of money. We urge you not to provide any personal information to these people who contact you, and never send money in advance of a promise to someone you don’t know.
If you would forward the email you received to info@ChristianAid.org, it would help us know what is being circulated. However, we are not in a position to stop the scammers.
5. Is Christian Aid involved in matters other than mission work?
Christian Aid does not get involved expressly in social, humanitarian, ecumenical, political, ecological or other causes. There are organizations that are named Christian Aid that may be involved in this type of work (for a list of other organizations known as Christian Aid click here).
6. What if I am contacted by a ministry overseas?
We represent hundreds of ministries in foreign countries and serve as their headquarters. We verify their existence and validate their ministry as genuinely Christian and worthy of your support. We provide tax-deductible receipts for your contributions, and send funds to approved ministries in need.
We caution against sending a gift directly in response to an appeal from an overseas ministry that has not been evaluated by Christian Aid or someone you trust. Many people misrepresent what they do. There is no certainty that your contribution will be used for the ministry described. Neither will you receive a valid, official tax-deductible receipt.
