Back Bay Mission relies on the generous support of individuals and congregations across the United States. While we are a community ministry of the United Church of Christ, we receive no funding from the national setting of the denomination. That means that people just like you are the people who are strengthening neighborhoods, seeking justice, and transforming lives on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Thank you for considering a gift to Back Bay Mission.

$50 can pay the application fee on an apartment or provide a homeless individual with a camping stove.

$250 can pay the utility deposit for someone moving into housing or provide five monthly bus passes.

Gift Information

Consider a Recurring Gift

You can do even more with a recurring gift. By giving a smaller amount each week, month, or quarter, you can end up giving more than you would with a single gift. That translates to more neighborhoods strengthened, more justice sought, and more lives transformed.

State Disclosures

Some states require that organizations that solicit to residents to be registered. That means, for example, that if Back Bay Mission sends a letter asking for your support to one of those states, we need to be registered. Some of those states also require that we have disclosure statements on our website. In order to keep these pages readable, you can find those disclosures here.

In Kind Gifts

Back Bay Mission accepts in kind gifts in a variety of forms.

Gift Cards. We prefer gift cards to Walmart (for general needs) and Lowe’s (for building materials).

Wish Lists. We maintain a few wish lists on Amazon.com. You can buy from Amazon and have those goods shipped directly to us. Go to Amazon to see the wish lists for our food pantry, our homeless outreach program, and the Micah Day Center.

Clothes, food drives, and other in kind gifts. If you have other items that you think the Mission could use, please contact our church relations associate or community relations associate.
