Looking for a creative, profound, and life-changing way to celebrate Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Graduation, Ordination, a New Baby, Christmas, or other special occasions? Alternative or Tribute gifts are a meaningful way to give a gift that keeps on giving as it goes on to touch the lives of others. (Or maybe YOU are the one who is reaching a milestone which is worthy of celebration and you would prefer that gifts be given to support the work of Global Ministries or a global partner.... Share this information with friends and loved ones, and contact Global Ministries so we can work with you to be sure that gifts support the ministry you choose.)
You can choose to make a gift to support any of the projects of our international partners, the work of a current or new missionary, or you may make a general gift to Global Ministries in honor of your friends, family, pastor, or just about anyone.
Gifts may be in any amount. You may make your gift online by clicking the yellow button below or you may send your check with information about the gift recipient and gift designation to:
Office of Resource Development
P.O. Box 1986
Indianapolis, IN 46206
Please indicate the name and address of your honoree(s), the occasion, and the designation you have chosen. We will send your honoree(s) a Global Ministries card and photo, notifying them that a gift has been given in their name(s). You may instead choose to have the card sent to you so that you can present the gift to your honoree. We will send you a letter and receipt for your tax-deductible gift(s).
If your gifts are designated for particular programs, they will go in their entirety for the designated purpose to our international partner. No administrative fees are taken from designated gifts to Global Ministries because of the faithful giving from our churches to Our Church's Wider Mission (OCWM) and the Disciples Mission Fund (DMF).
The Causes application on Facebook also provides a tool for making a Birthday Wish that will support the work of Global Ministries. Several Global Ministries supporters have made Birthday Wishes that have been granted by their Facebook Friends!
