The Impact Fund is essential to all areas of EMM’s mission. It enables EMM to recruit and send workers, cover some of the cost of worker support, update constituents through publications like Missionary Messenger, provide salaries and benefits for the staff who support these activities, and much more. A charitable gift for which you do not indicate a preference will benefit the Impact Fund.
In 2017, 14 businesses gave to EMM’s Impact Fund
Individual donors and congregations are a vital part of EMM’s support structure. Another leg of support is the businesses who give financially to this mission.
Adrian Groff, vice president of Groff’s Heating & Plumbing in Willow Street, Pa., says the following about why his family-run, Lancaster-born business gives to EMM:
“We have been partnering with EMM for many years and have always been impressed by the leadership and vision of EMM’s team. The Impact Fund seems to be a valuable kingdom tool that allows local businesses to make an impact that follows the heart of Christ, here and abroad.
God has given amazing resources to business folks in Lancaster. He is asking the business and church communities here to be faithful stewards of our Christian heritage. Groff’s is just one of many businesses that are looking to invest in people in a way that brings value and the love of Christ to as many communities as possible!”
I’m thankful to Lancaster County — and beyond — for the constant generosity you have shown over the past hundred years and more, as EMM has worked to share the love of Jesus locally and throughout the world.
We are also thankful for those businesses who are currently partnering with EMM through sponsorships — learn more about them. To find out how you or your business can respond to God’s compelling love through crossing cultures, engaging the world, and inviting people to becoming disciples of Jesus, contact me. You can also give anytime at emm.org/impactfund. God bless you!
