Frequently Asked Questions

What happens after I give a gift?

We send your donation to our native partners around the world. They serve in their own countries, speak the local languages, understand the local cultures and religions, and live at the local economic level. Our native partners purchase the designated items locally and use them to deliver help and hope in Jesus’ name. They share the gospel, start churches, and care for the poor in the world’s unreached, marginalized, and forgotten communities. Together we make a difference in lives around the world!

Where will my gift go?

Your gift will be sent to our trusted native partners in more than 115 countries. Each partner is working to share the gospel with local people who desperately need to hear that God loves them, so your gift will make an impact wherever it goes.

What if an item receives more donations than needed?

That would be wonderful! Any extra funds will be distributed in the form of other highly needed items that will transform lives and spread the gospel around the world.

Who is ANM?

As Christians, we all want other people to experience the gospel that has transformed our lives. But it can be difficult to find the best way to make a difference as a Christian, especially beyond your local community. For the past 29 years ANM (Advancing Native Missions) has helped thousands of Christians and hundreds of churches get involved in global outreach that transforms lives and communities in the name of Jesus.

What does “Native Missions” in your name mean?

Instead of sending foreign missionaries abroad, we partner with native Christians who live in or near their homelands. They already know the language and culture of the people they serve, and they are accustomed to the physical climate, religious customs, and political systems of the communities they work in. They also live at the local economic level, meaning that your donation goes farther than with traditional foreign missions. All of our partners are rigorously vetted, gospel-centered, and fruitful. They purposefully focus their work on places without a thriving local church.

Send emergency relief to COVID-19 hotspots

At first, 87-year-old Melati wondered why she didn’t receive any food from the village elders during the emergency aid distribution. Then she heard the village leader’s explanation: “Why do we have to give assistance to Granny Melati? She is not a Muslim; she is a Christian. We don’t need to give her food!”

Around the world, the poor and marginalized have been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. In many places there is little social safety net, medical care is difficult to access, and people who live day-to-day have faced extreme hardship.

Christians are responding to these needs in the name of Jesus, and you can make a life-saving difference through our native partners.

Your donation for COVID-19 will provide —

  • Food for hungry families
  • Hygiene supplies to help families stay safe and healthy
  • Financial aid for those who have lost jobs because of the pandemic

Melati’s situation improved when our native partner heard about what happened and began delivering the food and care she needed.

Many more people need the care that Melati received. Your gift today will deliver it in Jesus’ name.
