Thank you for your desire to show our Lord’s mercy to persecuted and displaced Christians in tangible ways.   

The Fund to Aid Christians Under Persecution, intended to care only for Christians who left Syria and Iraq for refugee camps in the Middle East, has been closed to additional contributions.  All previous contributions have been dispersed for those efforts through grants to two partner organizations. 

In response to the worsening refugee crisis in Europe, and in order to respond more effectively in helping both Christian and non-Christian refugees, the LCMS has expanded its mercy work among these persecuted and displaced people.  The name of this expanded effort is:  Christ’s Care for the Persecuted and Displaced: Mercy for the Body and Soul.   This effort builds on the lessons learned from The Fund to Aid Christians Under Persecution. 

To support this expanded work of mercy and show our Lord’s great love to those seeking a better life within the care of the church, please visit http://lcms.org/givenow/CCPD or call the Donor Care Line at 888-930-4438. Thank you!

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose, when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution toward another aspect of ministry that aligns closely the contributor’s goals and values. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.

Consistent with Synod Board policy and in recognition of the joyful response and generosity of God’s people over the past fiscal year, not more than 10.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 13.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
