What are the choices a growing project or individual has when donating to FRB?

FRB receives with much gratitude your growing project’s donation. We know it represents a tremendous investment of time, knowledge, and commitment. FRB is structured to offer you several choices for designating the money you raised. As each area is important to our work, we ask you to prayerfully consider all options.   

1. Designate to a Specific Overseas Program – Pick one or more of FRB’s 57 overseas programs to support. Current funding needs for all programs can be found here. Consider limiting your designation to no more than 25% of a program’s total budget, so other growing projects have an opportunity to participate. If you wish to continue with a specific program you’ve supported in the past, be sure to reconfirm this with FRB each year. 

2. Designate to a Member Account – All of FRB’s programming is done through our 15 member organizations. Through these accounts, growing projects can choose to support the FRB programs led by a particular member. Funds designated to a member’s account go to support their current FRB programs, programming costs, and the creation of new FRB programs. Our member organizations are:

Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA)
Catholic Relief Services (CRS)
Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Week of Compassion (CC[DOC]WOC)
Church of the Brethren (COB)
Church World Service (CWS)
Evangelical Covenant Church—Covenant World Relief (CWR)
Lutheran World Relief (LWR)
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC)
Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM)
Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA)
Reformed Church in America—Reformed Church World Service (RCWS)
United Church of Christ—One Great Hour of Sharing (UCC-OGHS)
United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)
World Hope International, Inc. (WHI)
World Relief
World Renew

3. Designate to the FRB General Programming Account – This account supports current programs, new programs that need additional funding beyond what is designated, and certain programming costs.

You are welcome to designate your funds to more than one account; simply detail that on the donation form. We are happy to help answer any questions you might have about this process, and are pleased to see the level of interest that so many people have in connecting with our neighbors around the world. Thank you for your commitment to “growing lasting solutions to hunger!”
