Frequently Asked Giving Questions

General questions
How can I be sure I am giving in Canadian Dollars/US Dollars?

Once you enter your designation and amount, you can choose to give in USD or CAD.

I live in Canada but my missionary is from the US. Do I need to give in USD?/ I live in the US but my missionary is Canadian? Do I need to give in CAD?

You should give in the country where you live and pay taxes regardless of the citizenship of the missionary you support. Your donations will be transferred to the TeachBeyond office from which your missionary is paid or to the project/school you are supporting.

How do I give anonymously?

Setting up an Account
How can setting up an online account help me?
Setting up an online account makes it simple for you to make future gifts with just one click! With an online account, you can update your contact information, add or delete payment methods, and change the schedule and amount for your recurring gifts.  Having an account is a convenient, user-friendly way to manage your giving. You can see all your giving, both online and offline (eg. check) on your account.
How do I set up an online account?
Click the Login icon on the upper right of any web page. Then a window will appear that allows you to either log in to an existing account, or to sign up for a new one. You’ll enter your name and email address, and then create a password. After you do that, you’ll receive an email from us asking you to confirm your email address by clicking on a link. That’s the last step to gain access to your new TeachBeyond donor account. From there, you can log in to manage your giving and contact information securely at any time.
How do I update my account’s contact information?
To update your contact information, log in. Under My Account, select Edit Profile. You’ll be able to update your phone number, mailing address and your account password from there.
How can I update the payment method for my online account?
To update your payment method, log in to your account. Under My Giving, scroll down to the Payment Methods section. There, you’ll be able to add, delete or update the payment methods you prefer for your online giving.
What’s the benefit of switching to EFT/PAD giving?
EFT (US) or PAD (CA) transactions have a low flat fee which TeachBeyond covers, while credit card fees are 2.5% of the donation and must be either deducted or added to the donation amount. By switching to EFT/PAD giving, your donations are still safe and convenient, and your donation will be entered without these fees. You also won’t have to worry about your donation stopping if your card expires or is compromised. Simply follow the steps in #4 above to change your payment method.
Is my online giving secure?
Keeping your information safe is very important to us. Your credit card or bank account details are encrypted so that you or others can’t view the whole number by logging into your online account.
I’ve forgotten my password. How can I get it back?
To protect your account, we don’t store your password. Instead, you can reset it by clicking the Login icon on any web page. A window will appear, and on the left side is a link to click that will help you.
Missionary Information
What is the account number for the missionary or project I support?

Each missionary unit (individual or couple) and TeachBeyond project is assigned an account number. This number is on every receipt or acknowledgment that you receive from TeachBeyond. If you cannot find this, please contact us.

My missionary is not going

These funds will be used for other missionaries in need or a project approved by the TeachBeyond Leadership. TeachBeyond cannot refund donations due to governmental restrictions on charitable donations.

My missionary’s end of service

TeachBeyond missionaries who serve between one and three years qualify for three months’ transition support with an added one month per year up to six months. This is a great help to our missionaries during their transition. TeachBeyond office staff will then cancel all recurring gifts. If you wish to stop your giving before then, please contact Donor Services or go to your giving account online and change the end date for your giving.

How are missionaries paid?

Most TeachBeyond missionaries raise their own prayer and financial support. Several TeachBeyond positions receive a stipend which covers some in-country expenses. Upon acceptance missionary candidates receive a support schedule which reflects their personal, family and ministry needs and the cost of living in the area of the world where they serve. TeachBeyond missionaries receive a set salary, provided the funds are available in their ministry account. All gifts given for missionary support are held in TeachBeyond’s accounting system under the designated account number. These funds remain available for the missionary for salary and ministry expenses.

Does TeachBeyond assess an administrative allocation on donated funds?

Yes, TeachBeyond’s administrative allocation is normally 12% on all funds given for individual projects and 6% for organizational projects. After 5 years of service, assessments are decreased to 10%. Administrative Allocation funds are used by TeachBeyond to cover a wide array of administrative and ministry expenses incurred by TeachBeyond (processing donations, mailings, administering insurance and retirement plans, various home office expenses, recruiting, new candidate orientation, and others) to support the ministry of our members and project.
