The Passionary Fund

The Passionary Fund

Passionary   –  an individual inspired through vision and compassion to change the world for the better!

American Baptist Home Mission Societies and its Christian leadership, discipleship and healing ministries stand on the shoulders of many American Baptists who have gone before, ministering side-by-side with us in countless ways since our founding in the early 1800s.

Because we know American Baptists and others today continue to seek ways to make a difference in our broken world, we have established a new annual giving opportunity—The Passionary Fund—that celebrates the time, talent and treasure of the friends and partners who support our transformational work.

Named for “passionaries” who do extraordinary things to support mission that changes lives, this new fund offers opportunities for supporting ABHMS with generous gifts. The Passionary Fund, vital to ABHMS’ financial stability, will provide more than $1 million in operating revenue each year. Your gift supports our work with children in poverty, victims of disasters such as hurricanes Katrina and Maria, and men and women returning home following incarceration—plus so much more.

You can support The Passionary Fund at various giving levels, to fit any budget:


$10,000 or more


$5,000 to $9,999


$2,500 to $4,999


$1,000 to $2,499


$500 to $999


$25 to $499

Passionaries—ordinary people just like you—care about mission. Your contribution to The Passionary Fund puts your passion for mission into action, supporting the transformation of thousands of lives. Look around you: The need for caring Christian mission is as great today as it was two centuries ago when ABHMS was founded.

Help American Baptist Home Mission Societies nurture strong Christian leaders, develop inspiring discipleship resources and heal and transform churches and communities across the United States and Puerto Rico. Your gift, no matter the amount, will make such a difference for so many.

I want to support The Passionary Fund!
