As donors may be interested in the finances of a nonprofit that seeks their support, we publish here our latest financial reports. Our finance committee meets monthly on the third Thursday at our office. Audited financial reports are received in alternate years. Earlier reports are available on request from our office.
A note from our financial officer, 12/26/2014:
This morning, December 26, one of our residents beamed as she thanked Open Gate and our donors for all the gifts her children received yesterday at the Shelter. As the little ones were laughing and playing with the new additions, she had an angelic smile on her face and a peace in her heart which she had not known for some time.
We have also just completed our food distributions in Dinuba, Cutler, and Orosi. We served over 700 families and gave out over 40 pounds of food to each one. We could never have done that without your generous support of time, money, food, and, especially, prayer.
However, homelessness and hunger never take a holiday, and we have a continuing opportunity to help others and share the Gospel through our example.
This email is a reminder that your year-end donations must be postmarked by December 31 in order to be deducted on your 2014 income taxes. You can donate in a variety of ways: 1) Send a check to 511 North “K” Street, Dinuba, CA, 93618. 2) Go to our website at http://www.opengate-ministries.org and follow the Paypal link on the “Donate” page. 3) Go directly to Paypal.com and donate to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would appreciate your continuing contributions, of course, and we need to keep our doors open, but whomever you donate to, please do it with a loving heart and a genuine wish to help others.
Thank you for the blessings you have paid forward and may you yourselves be blessed in the New Year.
