    1. Online
      Give online by visiting NAMB.net/give.
    2. Mail
      Please make checks payable to the North American Mission Board and include a memo or separate note if you wish to designate your gift.  When giving to a missionary’s local ministry, please include the ministry fund ID.  All gifts without a designation will be directed to the greatest need. We are not able to accept cash.

      Mail to: 
      North American Mission Board
      PO Box 116543
      Atlanta, GA 30368-6543

    3. Phone

    Tribute gifts are accepted by mail or online.

    To mail, send your check with a note detailing the fund, type of tribute (in memory or in honor) and indicate the name and address of who you want to receive an acknowledgement.

    Mail to:
    North American Mission Board
    PO Box 116543
    Atlanta, GA 30368-6543

    To make a gift online, complete the giving form, click the “Select Your Tribute” button and complete the tribute information.

    You may designate gifts to support the local ministry of a missionary by giving online or by check. To give online, locate the missionary’s ministry page by visiting the Missionary Directory.

    To give by check, make your check payable to the North American Mission Board.

    For IRS compliance, when giving to a missionary’s local ministry, do not write the missionary’s name on your check memo line. Rather, write their ministry fund ID on the memo line or enclose a separate note stating the missionary name and their ministry fund ID.

    The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® for North American missions has been an annual offering benefitting missionaries and their work of sharing the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ since 1895. Named in honor of Annie Armstrong, a passionate Southern Baptist advocate of missions who lived 1850-1938, the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is the primary funding channel for the North American Mission Board, comprising 50% of our total annual support.

    Every dollar goes to train, resource and equip missionaries working throughout the United States, Canada and their territories. The offering represents the trust that Southern Baptists place in our missionary force and our stewardship of these funds. Each year the offering totals approximately $60 million with more than $2 billion having been raised since the offering’s inception. Learn more about the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.
