P2W Ministries was formed as a non-profit corp. in the state of MN in 2005. Part of receiving the larger federal nonprofit status and maintaining non-profit status is having a regular flow of small donations coming in each month. We did not recieve enough small donations to finish our filings, and did not feel right about going on a 24/7 mailing spree to try to get donations, so we've just begun to do the work we feel led to do inspite of the tax status, and we claim whatever comes in as our ordinary income like all Craigs musical events.
It is very important to seek God's face as to who you should be sending your offerings to. If you are not involved in a mainstream church, you should be sending your offerings to people with needs. What neighbors, homeless, single moms, widows, orphans and needy are in your neighborhoods. To these you should be sewing your "love". The love that can break down the walls of injustice.
For us a a music ministry, we will continue to do what we can, and if people begin to support us in a way that allows us to file for Federal Status, we will re address that filing.
