DonationsAny gifts to our ministry and the people we serve are greatly appreciated. As with other charitable giving, your donation to FITGM is also tax deductible when submitted to us through the agency that provides our donor support. Central Missionary Clearinghouse of Houston, TX, handles all of our receipting, and is an organization with 501(c)(3) status with the IRS.
Although Fellowship in the Gospel Ministries is a ministry out under our local church, Strodes Mills Baptist Church of McVeytown, PA, all of our financial gifts are received, receipted, and tracked through Central Missionary Clearinghouse (CMC) of Houston, TX. CMC serves over 500 missionaries and our experience with them has been exceptional. You may find them on the web at: www.cmcmissions.org.
CMC will provide very competent support to you, our donor, making sure that your gift is handled efficiently and receipted speedily. They charge only a small handling fee of $2.50 per transaction, regardless of the size of the donation.
When giving, either online or by check in the mail, you will need to make the specific intention of your gift known to CMC. You may donate either to our Personal Support (for Brian and Janice Hampton), or designate your gift to a specific fund or church planter under our ministry.
Some of those designated funds are the following: Our Travel Fund, Pastor Training Fund, Scripture Fund, Youth Ministries Fund, or our General Project Fund. The General Project Fund is a discretionary fund that people can give to when they just want to direct their donation to field ministry in Haiti, rather than to the personal support of The Hamptons. In that case, we make sure to prayerfully use their gift in whatever way we deem best, or as the next “urgent need”, or project in need of funds, arises.
If you prefer to send your gift by mail, make your check payable to “CMC” and send to:
Central Missionary Clearinghouse
P.O. Box 219228
Houston, Texas 77218
You may call us with any questions at: 717-250-1983 or call the CMC Office at: 800-262-7729. Although you need to send a note as to how you wish your gift to be designated, for tax purposes individual donors must leave the memo line on their check blank.
