What happens to our profits?

When you buy from The Good Book Company, your money is going further than you think. We're committed to using all that God gives us to serve him and his people, and that includes any profits he blesses us with. So anything we make from selling gospel resources to you is ploughed back into the work of the gospel.  

Putting our profits to good use

There are three main areas that we concentrate on as we seek to put our profits to good use:

1. Translating existing resources into other languages.

We have dedicated members of staff who work with partner publishers in other countries to translate our resources. We currently work with partner publishers in over 45 countries and our network is growing. We also work with distribution partners around the world and are developing partnerships in India and South Africa. 

2. Pray, Prepare, Preach.

This is a project which we have developed together with the Proclamation Trust which seeks to give practical help to Bible teachers around the world. The PPP study guides on various books of Scripture help preachers to understand the Bible text, and to think through how it applies to life in their particular situation. Many of the distributed books are in simple English, but we also translate into other languages when we receive requests from local organisations. Tens of thousands of study guides are distributed in dozens of under-resourced countries and the feedback from local pastors and their congregations is overwhelmingly positive.

3. Supporting the work of Compassion.

We donate a portion of the proceeds from our Christmas cards to this wonderful Christian charity, which is one of the  world's leading child development and advocacy organisations. Working with local churches in 25 countries across the world, Compassion links children living in poverty with loving sponsors who give them access to education, nutritious food and health checks through the care of local church-based Compassion projects. Given the vast and complex needs of children living in poverty, Compassion also protects children and their caregivers in the long-term through interventions, providing safe drinking water for communities, malaria nets, life-saving surgery, malnutrition-prevention programmes, vocational training centres, and emergency relief after natural disasters. We are thrilled to be able to make a financial contribution to their work through sales of our Christmas cards.
