Retired Missionary Program

Retired Missionary Program

Mission Statement

Giving on Purpose is aware of the special situation of certain retiring Christian missionaries and works to provide financial assistance to help them meet pressing financial and/or medical needs.

 

Savings to cover crises or major events are limited for many retiring missionaries. After returning from up to 40 or more years on the mission field they now find themselves aging, and in some cases burdened with health problems, but with very little income or financial support. Some have no retirement or savings at all and may not be eligible for financing from a reliable institution, including Social Security and Medicare.

 

Older missionaries' supporting mission organizations often did not provide a retirement or pension so now in their later years they must rely on limited employment and the continued support of some faithful donors, while their previously relied upon support base has decreased substantially because they are no longer considered part of "active ministry."

 

Giving on Purpose appreciates the value of the years, sacrifices, and services these missionaries invested in others and in return would now like to help them meet some of their pressing financial and medical needs.
