Matching grant offer for missionary support

DOUBLE your gifts to IM: May 1 – June 30

IM announces a generous Matching Gift Opportunity. New individual donors and current donors who give a gift over-and-above their previous contributions can have their gifts to International Ministries DOUBLED when they respond between May 1 and June 30, 2013.
A generous group of donors from the Luther Rice Society (LRS) are making this gift-doubling opportunity possible. These individuals have created a matching pool that now totals $200,000 and may grow larger in the coming weeks.
The LRS donors are inviting other individuals to contribute gifts of $50 or more to International Ministries. Participating with IM through these gifts will help to call new workers into international cross-cultural mission service as well as undergird the work of current mission personnel. These gifts will be matched dollar for dollar between May 1 and June 30, 2013, or until the matching pool is depleted, whichever comes first.
“The Matching Gift Opportunity will help us send new personnel into service on location and strengthen the support for our 110 current and endorsed long-term missionaries, development workers and global consultants,” commented Reid Trulson, IM’s executive director.
Individual donors (rather than groups or congregations) may participate in this Matching Gift Opportunity. “Matching Gift” must be written on the memo line of checks for the gift to be doubled.
Gifts may be made online or by check payable to International Ministries. Checks should be mailed to: International Ministries, P.O. Box 851, Valley Forge, PA 19482.
