The season of giving is nearly upon us and that means it’s almost time for #GivingTuesday.

On Nov. 28, you will have the opportunity to once again “Connect Your Passion with God’s Mission” to address the needs in the world today.

Last year, you were one of nearly 2,550 donors from 19 countries who donated more than $850,000 through The Advance to support mission and ministries around the world. Thank you for your faithful giving. 

Your generosity illustrates the true meaning of the season. We hope you’ll join us once again to change even more lives on UMC  #GivingTuesday 2017. 

To help you get involved and spread the message of generosity, we’ve created a host of #GivingTuesday resources. You will find the answers to frequently asked questions, tips for using social media and creative ways to foster the giving spirit. 

What project or missionary will you support this year? Through The Advance, you can choose from more than 300 United Methodist missionaries and 600 United Methodist-related projects worldwide. From disaster relief to feeding the hungry to improving the quality of life of women and children around the world, you are sure to find a project that feeds your passion.

As always, 100 percent of your gift to The Advance goes directly to the project of your choice.

Our #GivingTuesday toolkit also offers ways to get friends and family involved, including asking them to make an early Christmas gift in your honor to your favorite Advance project or missionary on Nov. 28. You also can make a gift in honor of those on your Christmas list. 

This Advent, continue to “Connect Your Passion with God’s Mission” through The Advance at www.UMCmission.org/give
