It costs between $250-$400/month for 1 staff member depending on their experience and responsibilities. We also pay for basic medical care and ultrasounds for mothers in the maternity home and mothers who visit the crisis pregnancy center. 100% of donated funds go directly into The Light Center project account in Thailand. Donations go through a 501c3 organization and are tax deductible for U.S. residents. We are always grateful for one-time gifts, but prefer monthly donations because most of our expenses are monthly and predictable income provides financial stability to The Light Center. If interested, you can setup automatic monthly donations here. Alternatively, you can mail a check made out to “Cord Ministries” with “The Light Center” in the memo line to Cord Ministries, PO Box 102, Wheaton, IL 60187-0102.
