Posted on April 19, 2018 IM Launches Spring Matching Gift Challenge

On April 15, International Ministries (IM), also known as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, launched the 2018 Spring Matching Gift Challenge to benefit IM’s global servants.

IM advises that any new or increased gift to a global servant will be doubled when it is received now through midnight June 15 PST or when the matching fund is depleted, whichever comes first.

At a time when IM global servant support has fallen behind by almost $150,000, “our desire is to make up the difference by encouraging new and growing support so our global servants can continue changing lives around the world,” says Zofia Dripps, associate executive director for Mission Advancement.

Out of a deep desire to inspire new and increased support for IM’s global servants and their ministries, a generous donor gave $100,000 for the Spring Matching Fund. This fund is being used to double new and increased giving in support of IM global servants.

For donations made as part of the Spring Matching Gift Challenge, matching funds will be applied as follows:

Donors wishing to increase a current recurring monthly pledge should contact IM’s Donor Services team at 610-768-2323, being sure to mention the Spring Matching Gift Challenge, or by using the contact form on IM’s website, with “Spring Matching Gift Challenge” selected as the subject.

All other gifts may be made securely online via credit card or PayPal at this link or by mailing a check made payable to International Ministries, with “Spring Match” and the name of the target global servant on the memo line, to:

International Ministries
1003 W 9th Ave, Ste A
King of Prussia, PA 19406
