Young Adults in Global Mission FAQ

Making a gift and finding pages

How do I make a gift/donation to a young adult’s fundraising page?

From the Young Adults in Global Mission homepage, select “Donate” on the top right side of the page. From here, use the text box to type in the name of the young adult you are looking for and click “Search.” On the results page, locate the correct person and click on their name, which takes you to their personal fundraising page. Select the “Donate Now” button and the contribution you make will count toward their goal and display on their personal fundraising page.

How do I make an anonymous gift/donation to someone’s page?

When you are completing the donation forms, you are asked if the contribution should remain anonymous. Simply check this option and your gift will remain anonymous.

How do I find a specific person’s fundraising page?

It’s easy to support any of the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission volunteers. Simply visit our Donate page and search for the individual by name.

How will my gift be acknowledged?

After making a contribution to a specific young adult’s fundraising page or a general contribution to the Young Adults in Global Mission program, you will receive an email with gift information, along with a message from the ELCA. This email will be sent to the email address provided at the time your donation was made and can be used for tax purposes.

Is my information secure?

When registering or donating through the Young Adults in Global Mission fundraising site, we use secure forms to collect your personal information. Your privacy is important to us, and we guarantee your information is secure. If you have any questions, please call us at 800-638-3522, ext. 2820.

Creating and using my existing page

I can’t create a second page, help!

Have you already created a fundraising page to support other ELCA ministries and are having trouble creating a second? Our system does not allow two pages with the same user login information (username and email) to exist at one time. If you are interested in setting up two fundraising pages, you will need to create a unique username and password for each page. If you have additional questions regarding this item, give us a call at 800-638-3522, ext. 2820. We can help!

I forgot my username and/or password. How can I retrieve it?

By selecting the “Manage My Page” link in the top right corner of the fundraising site, you can log in, retrieve a forgotten username via email, or retrieve a forgotten password via email. The username reset and password reset emails will be sent to the email address you gave us when you created your fundraising page.

Still didn’t find the answer you were looking for?
