On Nov. 28, United Methodists have the opportunity to extend the spirit of giving thanks into the Advent season through gifts to The Advance.
Through The Advance, United Methodists can give to more than 300 missionaries. Donors also can provide support for more than 600 United Methodist-related projects worldwide. As a partner with The Advance, you provide United Methodists and others with a way to build missional relationships through a designated giving channel they can trust. As always, 100 percent of gifts to The Advance goes directly to the designated project or mission.
UMC #GivingTuesday is part of an international movement that builds on the recent U.S. shopping traditions of Black Friday, Local Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. It offers an opportunity to start off the holiday season by giving through supporting organizations that have been researched and approved by the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries.
To help you and your congregation spread the word and inspire generosity, UMC #GivingTuesday Toolkits have been created. You’ll find everything you need to share with your friends and constituents about UMC #GivingTuesday and The Advance. The kits include unique ways to get involved in the giving celebration, plus sample emails, social media tips, and much more.
