As of July 20, donations toward the Matching Gift Opportunity have reached over $371,000 from 1,560 individual donors.  The matching gift drive, sponsored by American Baptist International Ministries (IM) will end at midnight on Tuesday, July 31. 

There is still time to have your gift matched.  Checks indicating “matchable gift” and postmarked or credit card gifts initiated on or before July 31, 2012 will be matched at 100%. 

To be eligible for the match, individual donors must be giving for the first time ever, or be current individual donors who are giving over and above their regular giving.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for individuals to double their impact in mission. And there are still a few days to go,” commented Reid Trulson, IM executive director. “These gifts will help IM to appoint new missionaries and sustain current missionaries in their work.  We are so deeply grateful for these gifts which help new missionary candidates and current missionaries to follow the call of God in their lives.”

Eligible donors may give online at, or by mailing a check to International Ministries, P.O. Box 851, Valley Forge, PA 19482.  Gifts to IM should be marked “matchable gift” on the memo line and may be directed to:

In addition, it is still possible for major donors to give to increase the Challenge fund.  To do so, contact Ray Schooler at or Jim Wiegner at   Your generosity will encourage others to give even more.
