Partner With Us! Friends of Madagascar Mission guarantees that 100% of a gift given to us will be spent on the mission project for which it is designated. Nothing will be taken out of a gift to pay for our administration costs, but we invite donors to also give gifts to our Administrative Account.

Friends of Madagascar Mission does not create or determine the projects which we will support. The projects are requested by the Malagasy Lutheran Church.
