I am pleased to announce your gifts can me matched for a limited time.  If you are a regular donor the gift has to be above what you give regularly.  Donations must be for IM or a particular missionary.  Gifts for projects are not eligible.   If you wish to give to Nzunga and Kihomi note it on your gift. The details are explained below.

A special Matching Gift Opportunity is being launched by American Baptist International Ministries (IM).

All donors who give new or over-and-above gifts to support the entire work of IM or any IM global worker will have their gifts DOUBLED when they respond between now and June 15, 2016, or when the matching pool is depleted, whichever comes first.

A generous group of donors is making this gift-doubling opportunity possible. These donors have pledged to match any gifts given to IM designated for the Spring 2016 Matching Gift Opportunity. This group has donated a matching pool of $150,000. 

Additional gifts and commitments are still welcome from major donors to increase the size of the pool. (Interested donors should contact Ray Schooler.) 

Gifts eligible for the 100% match must be clearly marked "Spring 2016 Matching Opportunity" and must be from a donor new to IM or over-and-above any recurring gift.

There is no minimum gift or maximum gift. The opportunity will end on June 15, 2015, or when the matching pool is depleted, whichever comes first.

Donors may choose how their gifts will be used:
  1. 100% to support the entire work of IM.
  2. 50% to support the entire work of IM and 50% to a specific global worker of the donor's choice.
  3. 100% to the support of a specific global worker of the donor's choice.
No matter how the donor chooses to designate a contribution, all funds received will help IM continue its vital work for the Lord.

To give online using your credit card, go to the Matching Gift page on the IM website. To give by phone using a credit card, call 800-222-3872, ext. 2323, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., EST.

This is a great opportunity.  Please consider helping with the Lords work around the world.
