Giving

What’s your passion for ministry?

When you give to American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS), you give to a network of faith leaders, churches, institutions and communities, urban and rural—spanning the United States and Puerto Rico—that are making a difference in the world one person, one child, one family at a time.

 

Your gift repairs the roof of a house in Puerto Rico, still leaking years after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. Your gift helps immigrants and refugees, struggling to build new lives in a new world, with food and transportation. And your gift sends a homeless child to a six-week summer enrichment program, where nutritious food is served along with learning and God’s love.

 

In these troubled times, there is great need across our land. Where do you find your passion for bringing transformative hope and healing?

 

When you give to ABHMS, you can direct your gift to match your passion. Whether you care about changing the life of a child living in poverty, supporting victims of natural disasters, empowering faith leaders, helping congregations meet the challenges of a changing faith landscape or assisting American Baptists meet educational expenses, your gift transforms lives.

 

Your passion for mission and your gift to ABHMS make you an ABHMS Passionary—“an individual inspired through vision and compassion to change the world for the better!”
