Gift amount
Giving Frequency

A pledge is any amount you commit to give to support a missionary, even if you are not prepared to give in full right now. You can set up a recurring gift or give on your own schedule to fulfill your pledge, either through this site or with a check. Pledging an amount even before you are able to give it allows a missionary to count on your future support.
