9 Ways You Can Help Today!
Generous individual donors make it possible for Discovering MErcy to help change lives. We welcome all donations. Whether you make a one-time gift of cash or use Amazon Smile, whether you set up a monthly donation or establish a matching gifts program at your workplace, you are essential to helping grow God's kingdom, one heart at a time.
Currently, we rely on donations for 60% of our operating budget. This year in 2019, we have branched out as we seek new revenue streams such as grants, special events, campaigns, and launching the Fearless Love scholarship program. Your donations allow our ministry to continue to help survivors flourish and see themselves through God's eyes for the first time.
When you donate you're giving hope to the hopeless, and changing the lives generations to come.
Show your commitment with an Automatic Monthly Donation to Discovering MErcy.
Want to make your donation go a little farther? As a monthly donor, you can ensure that when someone needs support, we can provide it. Your monthly contribution will help Discovering MErcy better provide services that meet the needs of survivors and their loved ones and allow us to plan curriculum efforts worldwide.
Some donors prefer to give smaller monthly donations over a longer period of time, rather than a single lump sum. Not only can this be easier for personal budgeting, but it also allows you to contribute more to Discovering MErcy than you may have thought possible.
For example, a gift of $10 per month might be easier to manage than a one-time gift of $100—and over the course of a year you’ve increased your overall donation to Discovering MErcy by 20%. To give the gift of freedom, click the "Monthly Giving" hyperlink in this paragraph.
