One time and recurring donations can be made through our account page here on the TEAM website.
Through TEAM’s online giving page, you can make a secure donation while also having the option of creating your personal profile/log-in and manage any changes to your donation frequency.
Online gifts can be made using any major credit card, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Please note, credit and debit card companies will take a 3.2% processing fee.
Online gifts can be made using a checking or savings account. To make a gift, select “electronic check” and enter the amount you wish to donate in U.S. dollars and click continue. There are no fees associated with this form of giving.
Are gifts tax deductible? Will I get a receipt?
TEAM is a tax exempt nonprofit organization under 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code; we are qualified to receive tax deductible donations and all donations to us are tax deductible. A tax-deductible receipt is sent for each donation we receive. If you receive a paper receipt, you may use the bottom portion to send in another gift.
Will TEAM remind me to send in my donation?
No. TEAM will not send monthly reminders. We strongly encourage our monthly partners to setup automatic monthly gifts through online giving, TEAM: ACT, or electronic bill pay.
Are there other ways to give?
Yes. TEAM has provided numerous ways to give in addition to online giving.

TEAM ACT: Automatic Contribution Transfer
Our TEAM ACT Program is a service that authorizes TEAM to deduct monthly donations automatically from a checking account (Electronic Funds Transfer -EFT).
ACT saves time and money, avoiding postage and check costs, and ensuring that checks won’t be delayed or lost in the mail. It also helps TEAM achieve better stewardship of your contribution by reducing processing time and costs, plus no fee is assessed, as with credit card donations.
Directions to set up automatic monthly contributions for a USA receipt:
Click here to download the registration form and print it out.
Fill the form in completely with your contact information; details help us keep accurate records and contact information.
Fill in the amount you would like to contribute monthly.
Pick the date of transferring funds to TEAM, either the 10th or the 25th of each month.
Read the agreement on the form, sign and date the form.
For a checking account transfer, we need a voided blank check (not a deposit slip).
Include form and bank document.
Donors will receive a USA receipt.
Mail it to this address:
TEAM Stewardship Department
PO Box 969
Wheaton, IL 60187-0969
TEAM will do a test run first with no dollars transferred. Your first automatic deduction will appear in about six weeks. You will receive a letter or email confirming that TEAM has enrolled you in this plan and the date of your first contribution. A record of each deduction will appear on your monthly bank statement. You will continue to receive a receipt from TEAM each month unless you request otherwise. You can discontinue your monthly deductions at any time by calling the TEAM Stewardship Department. Increases must be submitted in writing with a signed and dated request to do so.
Online Giving through your Bank Account
Many of us have discovered the ease of paying our bills through electronic bill pay. Just as you can pay your light bill through bill pay, you can also give in the same manner.
Directions to give by electronic bill pay:
Checks should be payable to TEAM or The Evangelical Alliance Mission
The “account” line should read: Account: M Lastfogel 011256
If the check comes from a banking center, and does not include your name and return address, the “account” line should be your name and donor number, followed by the missionary’s name and missionary account number. For example: Account: J Donor 611970 for M Lastfogel 011256. Your donor number can be found on any receipt.
If you need assistance, please call TEAM at (800) 343-3144 and ask for the Stewardship Department or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I manage my own credit card giving online?
Yes; once you have made an online donation through TEAM’s giving page, a username and password are sent via email. To login and access your profile, please click here. Once you login you can make any of the necessary changes.
Are there any fees when I give by credit card?
Yes, the credit card company takes 3.2% of every credit card contribution.
Is there any difference between using my credit card and my debit card?
No, both ways of giving have the same fee. To give online without any fees, you can choose the electronic check option on our online giving form or choose to set up an online bill pay through your bank.
I would like a change to my credit card contribution – how do I do that?
If you have set up a user account, simply log in to view and edit your contribution. If you do not have an account, please call the Stewardship Department at (800) 343-3144 and we would be happy to make your changes for you over the phone.
