AGO 2012 Review
Throughout 2012, All Grace Outreach continued its mission of impacting and improving the lives of children both locally and globally and funding Christian outreach efforts throughout the world. It was a phenomenal year for AGO. We feel humbled, honored, and blessed to have been able to touch the lives of so many struggling people as we spread the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our fundraising efforts for 2012 brought in $397,760 (a 95.5% increase over 2011). The operating expenses for the year totaled $6,110, of which $3,968 was used for booklets that are handed out for free, with the remaining for accounting, banking, and office items. Donations totaled $344,850, with the remaining $46,800 designated for donation to various charities in the 1st quarter of 2013. As a result, 98.5% of the funds were, or will soon be, distributed by AGO to organizations that focus on spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and/or assisting women and children. Following is a list of some of the organizations that AGO supported in 2012. We pray that God will use all donations for His glory and renewed hope and a better quality of life for those in need.
AGO does not employ any paid staff and runs completely on volunteer labor. Words cannot express how grateful we are to all those who have contributed their time, talent, and effort to advance our cause. We look forward to what God has in store for 2013. May His love and grace abound to all those who thirst and hunger for His love.God Bless,All Grace Outreach

AGO 2011 Review
2011 was a fantastic year for All Grace Outreach and we pray our efforts are making a difference. This year we raised just over $203,500 through our fund raising efforts. The operating expenses for 2011 were just under $12,000, or just 5.9%. The expenses included $2,700 for a new website, $6,700 for booklets that are handed out for free, with the remaining for accounting, banking and office items. Donations totaled roughly $146,000, with the remaining $45,500 designated for donation to various charities in the 1st quarter of 2012. As a result, over 94% of the funds were or will be distributed by AGO to organizations that focus on the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ or that are assisting women and children. Below is list of some of the organizations that AGO supported in 2011.
Since AGO does not employ any paid staff and is run 100% on volunteer labor, we would like to thank everyone who donated their time and talents. We look forward to what 2012 has in store.God Bless,AGO
