Giving Information

Regular, committed pledged donors are the backbone of our financial support. Giving regularly is a great way to strengthen your prayer life. Financial pledges also help us manage our monthly budget better, and make it easier to focus on ministry without added financial distractions. We do need and value one-time gifts; they help us meet our one-time outgoing expenses and help fund special projects.


If you are making a new (or updated) pledge to our ministry, please email us at ReachUs@EngagingTheAdventure.org and let us know the amount and frequency (ie., monthly, quarterly, annually) of your pledge. This allows us to follow up with you and TEAM to ensure your pledge gets processed appropriately and to keep our monthly support budget up to date. Thank you!

GIVE ONLINE HERE

1. To Give Online 

Online giving is the easiest and fastest way to have your giving processed by TEAM. You can give online by credit card or e-check.  The button above will take you to our giving page on the TEAM website (The Button was updated on 28 December 2021 with a new, user-friendly giving platform).  Make sure that your donation is designated as going to account # f,012115.  TEAM will email an acknowledgement of your gift to you within minutes.   


* A special note to churches and organizations: you will not be able to set up an account in your name via the website.  Please contact TEAM's donor relations department at (800)343-3144, and they will set this up for you.  

2. Automatic Recurring Giving

You can set up automatic donations from the checking or savings account you used for your first gift by choosing one of the recurring options (monthly, quarterly, annual).  It saves time and money, avoiding postage and check costs, and ensuring that checks are not delayed or lost in the mail. Thus it improves our stewardship of your contribution--and this method is free for you.


If you know you want to make automatic recurring gifts, we suggest you first register for an account with TEAM (on right side of giving page) and then return to the giving page to make your first gift.


If you want to make different arrangements for recurring giving (such as through your own online banking), you can contact TEAM at 800-343-3144 or email donors@team.org to help you set this up.  

3. To Give By Mail

Send checks to:

TEAM, PO Box 1683, Carol Stream, IL 60132-1683.  Please include the number #012115 in the memo line.





Additional Information

1.  Please make sure to give your email address to TEAM when you make your first donation.  This makes it possible for us to thank you, and also to follow up with TEAM to make sure your gift is properly credited.


2.  We live by faith, trusting that God will provide for our needs through our partners.  Your pledge to us is your own statement of trust that God will supply for all your needs, including supplying the resources to fulfill this pledge.


3.  Please do consider transforming your one time gifts into pledges of recurring gifts.  For example, if you feel led to give a one-time gift of $100, consider giving $10 a month for 10 months or longer instead.  


4.  TEAM is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization under 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code, and therefore all donations to TEAM are tax-deductible. A tax-deductible receipt is sent for each donation received.  TEAM will send you a Giving Report at the end of each year, which can be used when filing taxes.


5.  If you run into problems or do not receive a donor receipt from TEAM (same day if donating online, within a few weeks if donating by mail), please let us know so we can follow up.  You can also contact TEAM directly at donors@team.org or by calling 800-343-3144.
