The work of Mockingbird is made possible by the gifts of private donors and churches. Our annual operating budget is $195,000, and with virtually no overhead, your gifts translate directly into mission and ministry. Can you help?

Feel free to email us if you have any questions or would like more information.

Please consider asking your church missions committee to include us in their annual giving. Mockingbird is a fully tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization. There are several ways to give to Mockingbird:
