Every YWAM worker, including the founder, Loren Cunningham, raises enough funds to meet his or her own financial needs. For most people in YWAM, these funds come from friends, family and churches who contribute financially. Other YWAMers rely on their own savings, part-time jobs, foreign employment, small businesses or even–in the case of some of our older staff–pension income.

If you have recently joined YWAM and would like to begin raising financial support, or if you have been a YWAMer for many years and would like to strengthen your support team, the resources below can help. Also, we suggest that you find someone on your YWAM team who will agree to assist you as you raise support. Ask him or her to pray for you and hold you accountable to your support raising goals.

  • Donation Info. This document provides basic information for people who want to give to YWAM, and it can also help you figure out how to get your support income processed.
  • Not enough support? Suggestions for how to increase support from Betty Barnett and Holmes Bryant.
  • Poor churches learn to give. With handfuls of rice, eight churches that YWAM has started among road workers, the poorest of the poor, are now supporting 21 evangelists. Impossible? They thought so too.
  • Funding Your Ministry.  A book by Scott Morton that gives biblical advice for how to overcome support-raising obstacles.
