Your giving changes lives—thank you! Your charitable giving statements are here. See Your Record of Giving

You've been faithfully supporting a missionary or ministry, and we are ready to provide your record of charitable giving for the 2015 tax year, through gifts dated December 31, 2015.

Statements are mailed in batches and timed to arrive no later than January 31, 2016.

As you review your gifts, you'll notice our event of the year—in 2015, Great Commission Ministries (GCM) became Reliant.

Tom Mauriello, Executive Director, wrote:

We've seen our new name as a gift itself. Since we have launched this new chapter, we are mobilizing missionaries in more places with more church partners than ever. We trained 89 new full-time missionaries in 2015. And we have found that total financial support for missionaries and church planters (such as those listed on your statement here) has only increased. Praise God!
Our world can be broken by sin. But as we enter this new year, I am encouraged. We are part of God's gospel work—and it is real and powerful and changing lives. 

I am filing taxes right now. Can I get a statement online?

Yes! You can see your entire record of giving at MyGCM.org Reliant.org2015 Statement ExampleYour formal printed statement includes additional information about our audit and tax preparation, so you'll want to keep that one for your records, but they will list the exact same gifts.

As I look back at my gifts for the year, when did gifts transition from GCM to Reliant?

If you are preparing taxes, we remind you that this year our name changed. Our tax-exempt religious purpose has not changed, and that gifts in the 2015 tax year to GCM or Reliant are to the same 501 (c) (3) organization. Some notes: 

  • Our new name did not change the daily ministry of the missionaries we care for and we continue to accept gifts securely for every ministry fund with no interruption. 
  • All ministry fund numbers, donor records, and mailing address remained the same.
  • For most donors on our LifeLink giving program, the first gift labeled Reliant was June 2015.
  • For those who write gifts by check, we asked donors to make the transition to "Reliant" by July 31, 2015. However, we in most cases were able to accept gifts regardless of the payee.
  • All future gifts should be to Reliant.
