Many people are either curious about how we survive or wondering how to support us. For the curious, it is true that our orginization, Youth With A Mission (YWAM), does not pay us one penny in salary. YWAM has never paid a salary to any staff member in the history of the mission, this includes the President and the lawn mowers. Each person that works in YWAM trusts God for churches and individuals to jump on board with their vision and to financially support this either by one-time donations or monthly donations, as many might give to a charity.
We have people that support us for as small as $5 a month and others support us for more than that, it all adds up and contributes towards helping us do the work that we need to do. For those interested in giving, all donations can be sent in one of many ways as given below.
There are three ways you can donate. You can either donate to our personal support, which goes towards keeping us on the mission field (rent, food, clothing, etc.) or you can donate to our non-profit, “Project Grace”. To find out more about what “Project Grace does, click here.
