Why do Cord workers, missionaries, and projects need your support?
Because of immigration laws, few missionaries have the option of earning funds in the country they serve in. God uses His people to support His work. Financial supporters may commit to send gifts on a one time basis or regularly. These gifts are then transferred to the missionary.Because of immigration laws, few missionaries have the option of earning funds in the country they serve in.

These gifts are then transferred to the missionary, worker, or project on an agreed upon schedule.
What does my support money go towards?
Your funds go to the support of the missionary or project you designate with a small portion withheld, by agreement with the missionaries, to support the US based ministry that makes their work on the mission field possible. Donations to CORD also help support 'native' ministers working in Thailand.
How do I know my donations are used wisely?
The operations of Cord are reported to a governing board that has the responsibility to oversee the use of funds. Additionally, the use of funds is also locally monitored on the field in most cases, by a local project board. Furthermore, Cord files a Form 990 with the US IRS each year and is working toward becoming a member of the ECFA or similar organization. Audits are being scheduled annually.
How do I change my donor contact information, designation, or giving mode?
You may make changes by contacting Cord an requesting instructions for you particular situation. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-674-3068
The Missionary Special Assistance Fund
Cord maintains a fund to help with uncovered medical and unexpected expenses our workers may encounter. You can donate toward that fund by clicking HERE for the online giving page or sending a check to CORD with "MSAF #10210" in the memo. If the donation is requested to be used for a particular missionary or worker, please add a note to that effect.
How can I make a donation to CORD?
Online Giving: Each missionary, worker, or project has a link on their Cord Ministries page or in the drop down tab GIVE that will take you to a specific giving page. Please note that donations made using a credit card cost between 2.0% and 3.2% for CORD and your missionary to receive compared to 25 to 49 cents using the ACH option (Automated Clearing House) with your checking or savings account.
