Friends Network supports a large, global team of missionaries on a very lean budget. Our annual expenses include activities related to recruiting, training, sending, and supporting our missionaries, and we employ a small staff in the United States to carry out this work. Most of our missionaries are supported either by gifts from their support network (learn more here) or through local employment like English teaching.
100% of our revenue comes directly from charitable gifts given by individuals, churches, and schools. Friends Network receives no direct financial support from its affiliated synod or denomination. To make a tax-deductible donation, please click here.
