Ways to Give

The work of reconciliation and violence reduction depends on the support of people like you.  Without that support, our ministries with youth, children and adults would not be possible.  Approximately 80% of the funds which make these ministries possible come from individual and congregational donors.

Good Stewardship

MoR Dave FoutsFor several years now, On Earth Peace has been able to keep operating expenses within annual income.  This was achieved through careful management by staff, combined with steady support from congregations and individuals.  However, it has required some hard choices among priorities, and some worthy projects have not been possible. Financial reserves remain slim.

For 2012, we are pleased to report our stewardship of the funds entrusted to On Earth Peace: 

81.3% ------- Program Ministries and Services
8.3% -------- Management and General Operating
10.4% -------- Fund Raising

On Earth Peace works collaboratively with the Mission and Ministry Board of the Church of the Brethren and other denominational agencies to ensure that we do not duplicate efforts and can jointly sponsor shared ministries.
