Covenant World Relief (CWR) is committed to maximizing the amount of donations sent directly into ministry. At least 90% of every gift goes directly into ministry serving the most vulnerable. With your gift and partnership with us, you are loving, serving, and working together with the poor, the powerless, and the marginalized.

Covenant World Relief depends fully on the donations from local Covenant churches and individuals. We do not receive support from the Evangelical Covenant Church’s annual budget. Most of our donations come in during our fall campaign, but your support is needed year-round.
You can give regularly through automatic withdrawal, online (see below), or by check. You can designate your giving to a specific project, area of interest, or can give generally to the work of Covenant World Relief around the world. If sending a check, please mail it to 8303 W Higgins Road, Chicago, Illinois, 60631. If you work for a company that matches gifts for religious organizations, please contact us for more information on how to give a matching gift.
Covenant World Relief is a ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church, a registered religious nonprofit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in the United States of America. Contributions to CWR are tax-deductible to the extent that the law allows. Covenant World Relief does not appear on many online charitable giving search engines because its nonprofit status is tied to the Evangelical Covenant Church.
If you would like to send an acknowledgment card to someone letting them know you’ve made a gift to CWR in their honor, you can download a card here. It is only because of the generous response of Covenant churches and individuals that Covenant World Relief exists. Thank you for your support and partnership!
