For the past 150 years, OMF (U.S.) has trusted God to send the people, partners and provisions needed to continue our work in East Asia. This work, started by James Hudson Taylor in 1865, has always been a journey of faith—an adventure like no other. It is our aim to discover and implement creative ways to fund ministry, enable missionaries to serve in East Asia, and equip donors to invest in God’s work through OMF. Here are a few creative ways you can give to support our missionaries and outreach projects in East Asia. We couldn’t do it without you!

Automatic Donation Plan (ADP/EFT)
Matching Gifts and More
Please note that users have reported encountering issues when attempting to donate from their iPads or using the Google Chrome browser. Additionally, the automated e-mail receipt for donations does not list your donation preference. This critical information is received by us and we will honor your preference. However, if you would like to confirm your preference, please e-mail email@example.com or call 800.422.5330. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Regarding credit card and debit card donations: OMF International is charged a 2.5-3% fee by bank and credit card institutions to process these transactions. This charge is deducted from the money given to the missionary’s support. To avoid this charge, we offer giving by Electronic Check through our online giving site.
At this time we are not able to offer recurring online donations via our giving site. Please see Automatic Donation Plan (below) for information on monthly giving from your checking and saving account.
Save time, effort, postage and bank charges with ADP! Use the Automatic Donation Plan (ADP), also known as electronic funds transfer (EFT), to help direct more resources to reach East Asia’s peoples. Our Automatic Donation Plan is a direct arrangement with your personal bank to transfer your donation automatically. If you choose this convenient method of giving, your gift will be safely transferred to OMF International by your bank. You’ll receive a receipt from OMF International and your donation will be listed on your bank statement, just as though you had written a check. It’s that simple.
With ADP you retain control of your contributions. You can increase, decrease or cancel your contribution by contacting our Donations office. You will receive your receipts along with our deepest appreciation for your loyal and generous contributions to our work in East Asia. It will take three to six weeks to initiate your automatic donations. Then, around the 15th of each month, your account will be debited for the amount you indicated on the enrollment form. You never have to worry about overlooking a contribution or mailing it on time. Administrative time and costs are reduced, maximizing your gifts and furthering our urgent efforts to bring hope to billions.

Giving By Check
Please make your check payable to “OMF International” and indicate your giving preference (name of missionary, project, or Vital Support Ministries – General Fund donation, etc.) on a separate written note.
To meet IRS requirements, please do not put the missionary’s name anywhere on the check. The written note is all that is needed to indicate your giving preference. Also note, personal gifts may be given by individuals, but they are NOT tax deductible. We are unable to accept personal gifts from churches or other non-profit organizations.
A receipt with a tear-off portion to send with your next gift will be mailed back to you along with a return envelope.
When you provide a check as a donation, you authorize us either to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. Mail your check to: OMF International, 10 West Dry Creek Circle, Littleton, CO 80120-4413.
Giving Through “Bill Pay”
“Bill pay” is an option offered through your own financial institution. Using this method, you direct your financial institution to transfer your donation for the amount(s) and frequency that you determine. To set this up, contact our Donations office, 800.422.5330, ext 242 or firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your donor ID number. Use your donor ID number as your account number on the bill pay check. For the account information, use: OMF International, 10 West Dry Creek Circle, Littleton, CO 80120-4413, 800.422.5330. Please call or e-mail to tell us your donation preference.
