Christmas is coming and your favorite missionary’s gift is on your mind. What should you send? How long will it take to get to them? How many miles can one gift travel? Well, World Partners would like to take care of these concerns for you. World Partners suggests sending monetary gifts to our overseas staff. Shipping items may be more costly than the value of the gift and the missionary might also have to pay duty costs.
Monetary gifts should be sent to overseas staff via the World Partners office, P.O. Box 9333, Fort Wayne, IN 46899. Gifts arriving no later than November 30 will be included in the December payroll. Make checks payable to World Partners. In the memo line, clearly indicate the check is a “personal gift” and be sure to include the recipient’s name. Please be aware these gifts are not tax deductible.
If you would prefer to send your checks directly to the missionary, please contact the World Partners office at 260.747.9439 as certain missionaries cannot receive checks directly due to banking or for security reasons.
