Giving Account Fees

What do we do with your fee?

Just like the churches, charities and full-time Christian workers we support, Stewardship is a not-for-profit too. 

So when the administrative costs of services are covered, any surplus is reinvested into supporting charitable activities such as training, events and resources.
