How do I know that the 75% royalty will go to the featured ministry when I purchase one of the books?
In order to safeguard myself and have proper accountability, there are three independent overseers. They have full access to my book sales accounts. The overseers receive screen shots of all sold books after the promotional period has ended. They also receive a picture of the check when it’s mailed by certified mail. In case of a credit card payment, they receive a picture of the confirmation. Also, the ministry or individual will receive a signed and dated statement, confirming the promotional period and my commitment to pay the royalty to the ministry.
When will the royalties be paid?
They will be paid within fourteen days upon receiving all the royalties.
Why don’t you offer 100% royalty of your book sales?
As an author, I also need income and am responsible for all taxes. I believe the Lord put it on my heart to set it up as a 75-25% royalty split. The ministry receives the 75% royalty. Christ-Centered Books offers affordable books while also blessing the featured ministry at the same time.
Do I have to be a 501(c)(3) in order to participate?
No, any ministry or individual that furthers the gospel is eligible to partner with The Cause of Christ. However, there will be a “tax fee” since the donation isn’t tax-exempt. The “tax fee” is considered on a case by case basis and is solely related to the taxes that I have to pay.
Can I also participate if my ministry is outside the United States?
Yes, as long as you have a PayPal account. Instead of receiving the 75% royalty by check or credit card payment, it will be sent through PayPal. Proper verification of the ministry will be required. If you’re interested, please contact me. However, there will be a “tax fee” since the donation isn’t tax exempt.

For how long can I request this fundraiser?
As a general rule, the promotional period runs between three to seven days. At my discretion, I can have it run longer than seven days.
Is this a temporary or permanent fundraiser?
It’s a permanent fundraiser of all the books that are listed at Christ-Centered Books.
