As a 501(c)(3) non-profit outdoor adventure ministry we rely on donors for 17% of our annual budget. That means that each year GTD needs to raise $30,000 of our $175,000 total annual budget.  It's a small, but vital percentage. 

The remaining 83% ($145,000) of our annual budget comes from what we charge for events. We believe that the Lord has led us to be a program supported ministry instead of a donation dependent ministry. Our goal over the next few years is to be 100% program supported, but we're not quite there yet.

Our goal for this year's Annual Banquet is to raise $20,000 of the $30,000 we need to raise over one year. We pray throughout the year for God to prompt the heart of donors for the remaining $10,000.


There are 2 main ways we will attempt to raise $20,000 at this year's banquet:

ONE TIME DONATIONS: Any money you pay or donate towards the banquet goes towards our goal. That means that every banquet ticket sold, every table sponsored, every raffle ticket purchased, every donation mailed in, and every contribution made at the banquet will go towards our fund raising goal.

MONTHLY PARTNERS: From now until the end of the year we will be asking generous people like yourself to sign up to be one of our Monthly Partners for the next 12 months. All you do is pick an amount that you want to donate each month to GTD and sign-up to become a Monthly Partner. You can make automatic payments online through our website or through your bank... or just write a check each month and mail it in. We calculate the total amount that you plan to pledge over the next 12 months and put it towards our fund raising goal.
