What Is Basic Mission Giving?

Basic Mission Giving is the primary means by which our congregations financially partner with the Presbytery as we birth, nurture, and leverage new and existing ministries. As congregations and individuals contribute a proportion of their total receipts to Basic Mission, our leadership stewards these resources through faithful expressions of the mission of God in word and deed. A portion of these dollars can be directed to both the Synod of the Trinity and the Presbyterian Mission Agency as we support and connect with the larger work and witness of the national church.

In 2017, the Presbytery of Philadelphia celebrated 300 years as an organized body and network of disciples. As we move into a new season, we trust the contributions of the many will empower us as one body, convinced we can do far more together than we ever can do alone.

Contributions to Basic Mission may be made monthly, quarterly or annually, and are shared with both the Synod of the Trinity and the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA) as we support and connect with the larger work of the PC(USA) nationally.  Basic Mission can include both undesignated gifts, which fund the Presbytery’s, Synod’s and PMA’s annual operating budgets, and directed or designated giving, which supports specific programs and mission partners (but excludes Per Capita or Special Offerings).  The Presbytery’s share of undesignated Mission Giving was approximately $434,000 in 2017.

We give thanks for those who regularly contribute to Basic Mission, investing in the Body of Christ as we live into and sustain our faithful witness near and far.
