VisionQuest Alliance (VQA) is a non-profit organization that provides Christian organizations with a full range of affordable, high-quality business services including donation processing, donor support, receipt production and processing, accounting, payroll, audit prep, accounts payable, and constituent database maintenance. VQA was founded in 2001. They work with mission sending, relief and training organizations ranging in size from $200,000 to $20 million per year. VQA processes approximately 27,000 donations, totaling about $4.5 million each month. The highest number of donations are generally received during December and January.
Donating For A Good Cause
Most religious-based organizations rely heavily on donations from outsiders to fund their organizations. However, one of the many challenges for these organizations is their core competency is helping others — not running a business. To effectively run an organization, business processes need to be in place to address such areas as accounting, payroll and, most important to VQA clients, donation processing.
