The financial pledge campaign in support of the work of the PC(USA) Israel Palestine Mission Network (IPMN) is kicked off at our annual meeting in October. Those who pledge are asked to complete their commitment by June which is especially important in years when the General Assembly meets in July and our costs are higher. In off-years we conduct a scaled down campaign to cover our usual operational expenses. In addition, many individuals, churches and groups choose to give beyond their pledge, or without having pledged at all. A number of presbyteries designate a portion of the annual Peacemaking Offering to IPMN. We have been blessed by the fact that we have always exceeded our pledge goals and will do so again this year. This enables us to go beyond the commitments we initially make to our partners in Palestine.
