Missionary Partnership Plan
Continuing Your Partnership
With just one gift you can continue your partnership with the Wycliffe missionaries you support, both now and after your lifetime.
Through a Missionary Partnership Plan (MPP) with the Wycliffe Foundation, you can set up an agreement that allows you to provide ongoing support. It is simple to do and only takes a single current gift of cash or other assets, and/or a bequest through your estate.
How It Works
Through this irrevocable agreement, you can provide support to your designated missionaries for an amount and frequency (usually monthly or quarterly) that you predetermine. Your contribution, which is eligible for a current-year tax deduction, goes into an interest-bearing account and your support continues as long as the missionary is in a financial relationship with Wycliffe, or until funds are exhausted.
You can set up an MPP to begin immediately, or, if funded through a bequest, to begin after your lifetime. If the missionary you choose to support leaves Wycliffe before funds are exhausted, the remainder will be used where needed most.
If you'd like to learn more about advancing Bible translation through an MPP or another gift-planning option, please contact the Wycliffe Foundation.
As Wycliffe missionaries for more than 35 years, Mel and Nory have worked overseas in Colombia and Senegal, as well as in Texas and Washington state. They now serve with the Americas area of SIL International. Mel works with the language strategies and programs database, and Nory is the communications and prayer coordinator.
Over the years, Mel and Nory cherished their faithful prayer and financial partners. One of these partners was Bob MacDicken, who had a heart for missions and supported Mel and Nory for most of their Wycliffe careers. Bob wanted to continue this support even after his death, so he and his wife, Nancy, contacted Wycliffe Foundation and made provisions in their wills to do so.
Bob and Nancy have since passed away, and now Mel and Nory receive monthly support from an MPP funded by the MacDickens' bequests.
The MPP has blessed Mel and Nory in a practical way. "Through the years, you lose supporters," Nory says. "This gift has been a real encouragement to us to keep pressing on."
