Every project in every community starts with listening. We believe that our congregations, companion churches and partners know their communities best. That’s why they identify the needs and priorities in their communities, as well as the solutions they believe will make the biggest impact.
The items in this catalog are real examples from projects currently supported through different churchwide ministries. The projects have been planned by our partners – meaning that each community receives exactly the kind of support they need and none of what they don’t.
Your donation will be used where it is needed most within the wider category of each gift you’ve selected. (For example, a gift of vaccinations may be used to support other health care initiatives.) This allows our church to stay adaptive, flexible and effective in the work that we do. Because we seek to honor your generosity and keep administrative costs low, we do not track individual financial gifts to specific families or locations in the U.S. or abroad.
More than 85 percent of your gifts directly support our programs. Less than 15 percent is used for administration and fundraising. Your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law. You’ll receive a receipt of your gift for your records.
