Giving: We have had donations ranging from Tractor Trailers to live pigs. Almost any resource can be used and is appreciated. If God lays something specific on your heart then please contact us and let's see what He wants to do through our obedience together.

Many times our supporters give donations and ask that they be used for a specific purpose (designated gifts). Open Eyes appreciates this and honors such requests, however, we much prefer to receive non-designated gifts such that the missionaries can decide where the resources are most needed and will have the greatest impact. Please prayerfully consider non-designated support or simply specify the country you wish the funds to be used in.

All donations are tax deductible and can be sent to:
