Missionary Care Initiative: Travel Grants for Loved Ones to Visit Missionaries

Travel Grants for Loved Ones to Visit Missionaries

Serving on the mission field is rewarding but can also be challenging. One of the hardest parts about serving as a missionary overseas is being so far away from loved ones. A visit from loved ones is often not possible due to high travel costs. As part of Go Be Love’s commitment to encourage and refresh missionaries, we want to help cover some of the travel costs involved to make it possible for loved ones to visit missionaries on the field.

Missionary Care Initiative: Travel Grants for Loved Ones to Visit Missionaries

Grant Guidelines: Because we have a limited number of grants that we can provide, we have established the following guidelines:

  1. Grants range from $500-$1500.
  2. Grants are awarded for the flight portion of the trip only and flights will need to be booked through the travel agent that Go Be Love designates. Grant funds will be paid directly to that travel agent toward the flight booking and not to the individual traveling. Any additional funds needed to cover the flight beyond what the awarded grant covers will need to be covered and paid directly to the travel agency at the time of booking by the traveler or another party as arranged by the traveler and/or missionary. In the case of a cancellation after flights are booked, a refund will be requested to the airline/travel agency and the grant portion that was covered by Go Be Love will be refunded to Go Be Love. This allows us to award those funds to other grant applicants.
  3. Grants are intended to help loved ones who may not otherwise be able to afford traveling overseas to visit their missionary friend or family member in the place they are serving on the mission field.
  4. Preference will be given for visits to missionaries who have not had anyone visit them on the mission field before or for special circumstances (graduation, wedding, birth of a baby, surgery, hardship, etc.)
  5. Because of the number of grant applications we receive and the limited number of grants we are able to give out, we are not able to award more than one grant per missionary being visited. 

DEADLINES FOR THIS GRANT APPLICATION:
October 1, 2019: funding decision will be made by November 1, 2019.

Deadline for this round of grants has now passed. We will do another round in 2020.

2020 Dates: TBA
