How is CAP funded?

CAP receives no government funding. One-third of funding comes from the Life Changer program, which now numbers just under 3,000 individuals giving a monthly donation to CAP. As CAP works through local churches to deliver its service, one-third comes from churches. The remaining funds come from charitable trusts, fundraising events, and one-off gifts from supporters.

Is there a charge for the CAP service?

No, it is completely free.

What should I do if someone claiming to be a CAP representative offers me money?

CAP doesn’t give grants or financial gifts to individuals. If you have been approached privately by someone offering such assistance, this is likely to be a scam. If unsure, please email CAP directly [] to clarify if the message is authentic.

Our partners in the USA and Canada have seen scams like these occur, however we are not aware this has happened in Australia.

Is the service just for Christians?

No, the CAP service is available to anyone regardless of race, nationality, religion, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation or disability.
As a Christian organisation, CAP-trained ministry workers may offer prayer and discuss issues of faith with clients if they are interested. However, their response in no way affects the service offered.

Who regulates CAP?

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is authorised and regulated by Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission (ACNC) (ABN 92104471516).
