Altrua Ministries is a (501c3) Nonprofit Corporation. Its purpose is to support various charitable and religious organizations through its contributions and giving. Altrua Ministries is in direct affiliation with Altrua HealthShare for which the members contribute financial gifts to help foreign missions, local and national missions, research and development for the cure of life threatening diseases as well as other nonprofit organizations.
Altrua Ministries has been in existence since June 1, 2001. This ministry was formed by the members of Altrua HealthShare, Inc., which is a faith based nonprofit health sharing program that consists of members sharing in each other’s medical costs according to their biblical beliefs and convictions, Galatians 6:2. “Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.”
The mission of Altrua Ministries is to be a resource for individual and corporate contributions that are given to Altrua Ministries for the purpose of financially supporting various charitable & religious organizations along with research and development of life threatening diseases.
Because the Lord supplies us with resources for ministry through individual contributions, we recognize our accountability both to Him and to our donors. We have a responsibility to be faithful stewards and to maintain integrity and openness in our financial practices. Therefore, we are committed to the following standards:
• We seek to conduct our activities with the highest standards of integrity and to avoid conflicts of interest. Because we believe that it is God's place to prompt a response to our fund-raising appeals, we will not seek high-pressure or manipulative fund-raising tactics.
• Our fund-raising appeals clearly identify the purpose to which donations will be applied, and we ensure that donations are used for the purposes for which they were raised. We may assess up to 10 percent to be used for administering the gift. Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need. Our policy is to meet the needs God lays before us, so that Christ is lifted up and the mission for giving is accomplished.
• Contributions to the ministry are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. In order to help our donors determine the tax-deductible portion of their gifts, we record all contributions / gifts which will be provided to those contributing.
• We will not operate this ministry with indebtedness that dishonors the cause of Christ and hinders the purpose of this ministry. When we make a purchase, we pay the approved invoice within 30 days. We do not intend to use the vendor's money. We do not borrow monies from any financial institute for any of our overhead, purchases or opportunities to give to others.
