The Board of World Mission is supported in a variety of ways: through the provincial giving by local congregations, Society for Promoting the Gospel of the Northern Province, the Mission Society of the Southern Province, the Larger Life Foundation, and through investments. Together these sources cover roughly 70% of the Board’s ministry, covering the Board’s personnel and administrative costs as well as a significant portion of the grants we make to our partner provinces and other organizations with which we partner. However, another vitally important source of support are donations made to support the new initiatives the BWM is now implementing to strengthen the Moravian Church’s self understanding as a “mission movement – we send people!”
If you wish mail in your donations, please send them to our Bethlehem office:

*Please note that for Canadian donors, the BWM is not able to provide an acknowledgement letter for tax purpose outside of the U.S. Unfortunately this means a Credit Card payment option is not available for Canadian Donors at this time.

Thank you for your generosity in helping the Board of World Mission to be better able to serve your efforts to engage in God’s mission!
We offer you the following opportunities to donate to the Board of World Mission mission work:
General — a donation here allows the Board the greatest flexibility to insure that particular initiatives in need of funding to expand, will receive it.
