Donations FAQ

Do I have to have a PayPal account to pay online?
If you prefer, you can pay with your credit or debit card without signing up or logging into Paypal. Just click the “Donate” button for the category you desire on our How to Donate page. On the following page, look below where you sign in for the “No PayPal account? Pay using your credit or debit card” link. Click this link to proceed to a checkout that does not require a Paypal account.

Can I mail my donation instead?
Absolutely! We welcome checks and money orders. Please send to:

Asian Children’s Mission
352 S 28th Ave.
Cornelius, OR 97113

Are gifts to Asian Children’s Mission tax deductible?
Yes. The Internal Revenue Service recognizes Asian Children’s Mission as a non-profit corporation under 501c3 of the federal tax code. This means that donations are exempt from federal income tax. The Employer Identification Number for Asian Children’s Mission is 26-2808560.

How much of my gift will go to “overhead?”
The director takes no salary and pays her travel expenses to and from Myanmar. Administrative expenses include stationary, ink, stamps and computer-related costs. In 2012, these expenses were less than 2% of total contributions. We work hard to make sure that donated dollars go to help children and families in Myanmar, not cover American-based overhead.

Can you provide more information and documentation relating to ACM’s transparency and accountability?
Absolutely! You can read about our budget and other financial information on the ACM FAQ, learn more about our Board of Directors, Staff and Partners, and also download our 990 tax forms. The Ministries section of the site also provides a track record of all current, past and future projects. If you have more questions or concerns, please contact us.

Can I donate in honor or in memory of someone?
Of course! We will be happy to include the individual you donate in honor or memory of on our Partners page. Simply drop a note to us with your check in the mail letting us know, or you can donate in honor or memory of someone online by clicking the button for the donation you choose on our How to Donate page and include “In Honor Of (name)” or “In Memory Of (name)” in the message to us on the next screen.

Can I donate physical items (food, medicine, toys, clothes, school supplies, etc.)?
As appealing as we understand it is to give gifts in this manner, it is prohibitively expensive to transport these goods overseas to Myanmar. However, you are welcome to earmark a monetary donation for specific purchases if you desire. We promise that your dollar will go much further when spent in Myanmar.
