If you would like the opportunity to give to our ministry, or if you have been blessed by the ministries of International Messengers and would like to participate in helping us to minister to others, you can use any of the options available below.
WAYS TO GIVE
Donation by check or EFT to International Messengers is the most beneficial as 100% of your donation is received by us and there are no extra processing fees taken from your donation. Checks can be made payable to International Messengers and mailed to us at PO Box 618, Clear Lake, IA 50428. To set up Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), download, complete and mail the form (link below) to our office. Using EFT your donation is automatically deducted from your bank account each month at no charge to you.
2) Your Bank's Online Bill Pay
This option keeps your banking information private and most likely won’t incur fees for you or IM. Just follow your bank’s instructions for setting up either a one-time or recurring check to be sent to IM. Remember to include the code for the missionary you want to donate to.
3) Online Donations NEW!
This system allows you to give as a guest, or you can set up your own account to make recurring donations. You will choose the designation for your gift from the dropdown menu, then provide your card number, expiration date, and CVV number and submit. To give using an e-check, you will enter your bank’s routing number and your bank account number.The drawback is that we will be charged a processing fee for all credit/debit and e-check donations. This could be a significant fee for larger donations. Your gift will be processed immediately without the wait time that wasincurred when using Network for Good.
Online Donations through NetworkforGood.org
Because we are accepting online donations directly through the link above, we will be phasing out our use of Network for Good.
Donations made through networkforgood.org are safe and secure. IM receives distributions from Network for Good each month, and the donor receives a receipt from them for tax purposes. Network for Good retains just 3% of donations for processing fees and this amount can either be covered by IM (so IM receives 97% of the total donated) or by you at the time of donation (so IM receives 100% of the donation).
We receive one check per month from Network for Good, therefore any money donated through them is not immediately credited to the missionary or short-termer's account. The time it takes for the donation to be credited is determined by what day of the month the donation is made, but can take up to 4-6 weeks.
*Please note that if you use Network for Good for donations toward a short-term mission trip, only the amount received by us will be credited toward the cost of your trip. Any amount that Network for Good keeps for processing will still need to be paid to IM.
