Creating Sustainable NonProfits
Our mission: Abbey Ministries seeks to create environments of spiritual and personal growth, to shepherd with the heart of Jesus Christ and to serve strategically to effectively meet the needs of the our communities.
Proceeds from the profits of the monthly subscriptions to The Abbey are used in the creation and development of sustainable non-profit Abbey Ministries. The vision of The Abbey is to be able to fund ministries and help create a more sustainable and equal model for non profit ministries. Our hope that is that as our user base expands, so does the ministries that are supported by The Abbey.
The monthly subscription for The Abbey App would approximately be $2.99. As we reach the intervals of gaining new monthly users, we would be able to fully fund the initial operating budget for a new 501c3 non profit Abbey Ministry. This budget would include start up expenses, director and staff salaries, operating expenses, etc. Any donations received from other donors could then be used fully for the ministry to serve and expand their work in the community.
The Abbey App is sustainable and the ministry of Collegiate Abbey at the University of Tennessee Knoxville is fully funded.
