Many companies encourage employees, their families and retirees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. Matching gifts can double, or even triple, your impact for the mission and ministry of the Alaska Conference. Consult your HR office to find out if your employer has a matching gift program and what steps are necessary to enroll in that program.
A gift made in memory or in honor of a loved one is a thoughtful way to recognize an individual’s life and their service to God’s mission around the world. To make an honorary gift, send a letter indicating the purpose of your gift as well as the name and address of the honoree. For memorial gifts, if a memorial fund has not already been established, you should note on your check the name of the honoree and include the name and address of his/her next of kin so that we can properly notify their family of the gift.
