Pictured here are people that you may be hearing from – by email, mail or phone. They want to personalize your experience with Christian Aid and assist you in thinking about your stewardship. Their goal is to maximize the impact of contributions to Christian Aid through support for well thought-out projects carried out by qualified indigenous ministries overseas. These ministries have big vision with big needs which we hope some of you are in a position to participate in with your giving. We want your gifts to build God’s kingdom in the most efficient and effective way.

Pictured here are the people who answer the phone and process your contributions from start to finish. Processing gifts includes opening the mail for checks, processing credit card gifts and submitting electronic fund transfers (EFT). No matter how you give, your contribution is entered into the computer and a receipt is prepared. Receipts are then stuffed with appropriate enclosures and mailed. If you included a prayer request or other comment or question, these are the folks who pray for you and respond to your need. If you request a book published by Christian Aid or other informative materials, they gather the package together for you and send it. It takes all of these people to process the approximately 3500 contributions we receive monthly, respond to miscellaneous inquiries and requests, and answer approximately 50 calls daily. If you receive a phone call, email, or hand note from one of them, we want you to see who is contacting you. They love their work on your behalf and hope they are doing a top-notch job for you.
