Jaars Center


100% of giving to Transportation, Technology, Media, or Training Solutions goes directly to those designated areas. This is possible because JAARS is blessed to cover roughly 2/3 of our core operating expenses—including research and development, certain project management and training needs, communications, fundraising, and a range of missionary support services—through our own operations. The balance is covered by generous gifts to our CORE Mission Operations and, when necessary, funds from Where Needed Most.

For designated gifts, funding in excess of current needs will be applied
to future needs within the same Solutions area.
