—2 Corinthians 9:8

Give now to the Lilly Endowment Matching Gift Appeal

Why are pastors still hurting?

The coronavirus pandemic has taxed the resources of many of the churches in which MMBB members serve. These include diminished church giving, increased needs in congregations and communities, covid-19-related health challenges, and more.

Who will my gift help?

Your gift will help pastors who are MMBB members but who have not yet received emergency assistance. Specifically, our program aims to reach pastors from and serving underserved racial and ethnic and groups. Many of these pastors lead small to medium-sized churches that are still struggling.

How will my gift make a difference?

This unique MMBB-designed program provides a net of support to help empower recipients to achieve and sustain financial wholeness through:

1.   A one-time emergency assistance grant of $5,000

2.   Six sessions of live financial education led by MMBB staff

3.   A retirement incentive upon program completion

Gifts received from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2023 for the Lift up, encourage, empower special appeal are eligible for a $1 for $1 match from Lilly Endowment Inc. up to $250,000.
