OR-ID Abundant Health Team recommends missions and ministry giving for Giving Tuesday


Giving Tuesday is November 29 this year. Giving Tuesday, often described as a global day of giving or a global generosity movement, is held each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It provides an opportunity for caring people to make an special donation to worthy non-profits as an expression of gratitude and generosity.

The Oregon-Idaho Abundant Health Team recommends a number of giving opportunities within our United Methodist denomination for consideration on Giving Tuesday and for local church Christmas offerings.

At the top of the list this year is the grass roots program, Love Beyond Borders: The Interfaith Movement to End the Pandemic. Love Beyond Borders, in partnership with UNICEF, COVAX, and WHO seeks to get COVID vaccines equitably distributed around the world. But more opportunities, including ones connected to other parts of the Greater Northwest Area, are included here:

Many of these projects are part of the General Board of Global Ministries where giving is through the Advance. The Advance is an accountable, designated giving arm of The United Methodist Church that ensures 100 percent of each gift is used for its intended mission or ministry. This work fulfills both physical and spiritual needs through a variety of partnerships worldwide to reach mutual goals that make a life-changing and long-lasting impact.
