Where do your contributions go?
For every dollar given:
- 46 2/3 cents goes to ministries which serve youth inside (1/2) and outside (1/2) the geographic bounds of the Tennessee Conference. These grants are awarded by the CCYM.
- 30 cents goes directly to the Youth Service Fund administered by the Division on Ministries with Young People, to support ministries around the world which serve the needs of youth and children.
- 23 1/3 cents stays with the Tennessee Conference Council on Youth Ministries to aid in funding the administration of YSF and other youth ministries of the CCYM. Events like Hands and Feet, mission projects at Warmth in Winter, and other ministries are supported by your contributions.
