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 home page, select “Donate” on the top-right side of the page. From there, use the text box to type in the name of the young adult you’re looking for and click “Search.” On the results page, locate the correct person and click on their name, which will take 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. Please note that these giving pages are set up to receive only gifts from individuals. If you’re giving on behalf of a congregation or other organization, please visit or call us at 800-638-3522 to receive information about other giving methods.

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

When completing the donation forms, you will be asked if the contribution should remain anonymous. Simply check this option.

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 you provided at the time you made your donation and can be used for tax purposes.
