1. What is Sheltering Wings?

Sheltering Wings is a non-profit Christian organization whose purpose is to glorify God by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. The way we do that is through the support of missionaries and their projects. We provide stateside management and assistance as well as pastoral care. Read more in the "About Us" section of this website.

2. Are you with a certain church, denomination or mission organization?

No. Sheltering Wings is not affiliated with any particular church, denomination or para-church organization. We do hold to the basic tenets of the Christian Faith (see our Statement of Faith in the "About Us" section of this website) and expect those who would work with us to accept those basic tenets as well.

3. How are you funded?

Sheltering Wings is entirely funded through donations from people like you.

4. If I donate, how will my money be used?

Donations go into a general fund and are applied where most needed across the entire portfolio of programs Sheltering Wings oversees. You can, however, give to a specific need if you so desire. Please visit our "Donation Center" to learn more.

5. Are contributions tax-deductible?

Yes. Sheltering Wings is a 501c3 non-profit organization and as such can solicit tax-deductible donations. Donation receipts are issued at the end of each calendar year to donors for tax credit purposes.

6. What is your overhead ratio?

Sheltering Wings uses 10% of all donations to cover the cost of expenses like bookkeeping, mailings, websites, etc. Sheltering Wings does not employ anyone on a full time basis.

7. Who runs Sheltering Wings?

Sheltering Wings is run by an all-volunteer group of Christians who want to see Jesus glorified in the nations. Many in the group are short and long-term missionaries themselves. Our hope and prayer is to serve Jesus and serve you to help fulfill your calling.

8. I want to be a missionary – where do I start?
