Tomorrow Is UMC #GivingTuesday!

UMC #GivingTuesday is almost here! Tomorrow you can join with thousands of United Methodists to shine the light of Christ. When you give to The Advance, you give light, love, and life throughout the world. And more than that: you shed light, love, and life on your own heart.

At umcmission.org/give you can browse and search more than 300 United Methodist missionaries and more than 800 United Methodist-related projects to find the best fit for your generosity. And remember: 100 percent of the gift you give through The Advance goes directly to the cause you specify.

Last year, nearly 6,000 donors from 27 countries donated $2.8 million through The Advance to support mission and ministries around the world. We are thankful for your support of more than 770 missionaries and projects, who received 8,757 gifts through The Advance, the designated giving channel of The United Methodist Church.

We encourage you to share this information with your friends, family, and fellow church members. The more people who share in this celebration of generosity, the more light, love, and life we can give.

With blessings and thanks for the work that you do.
Thomas Kemper
General Secretary
General Board of Global Ministries
