Besom doesn't do fundraising...

You will never find us running fundraising campaigns, crowd-funding or proactively applying for grants.  However, we do enable followers of Jesus to put God’s love into action by encouraging generous and effective giving.  We hope you will be praying and seeking God's wishes for how you steward your resources in relation to money. It isn’t important how much you give but the heart with which you give it.  Whatever it is, thank you for joining us on the Besom mission.

Three ways you can give to Besom

1) Through local Besoms

Giving money ‘through’ the local Besom to purchase items for recipients such as washing machines, materials for projects such as paint or many other items.  Find your local Besom and contact them directly.

2) To local Besoms

Giving money ‘to’ the local Besom to help with their running costs such as maintaining the van.  

3) To the Besom Network

Giving Money ‘to’ the work of the national Network in supporting existing Besoms and its big vision of planting new ones in every community.

Why doesn't Besom advertise its need? 

It could appear that we are being awkward by not advertising the need towards those who could give.  In any given week, we know about so many cases of people who are in great need, whether it’s for furniture or decorating, baby items, kitchen starter packs..., but we don’t advertise this.  

  • We believe that God will “satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land” (Is. 58:11)

  • We believe that giving should come from a heart of compassion for those in need, rather than a sense of guilt, duty, or compulsion

  • We believe that advertising the need is a sure-fire way of exhausting the church. In the long term, this is not a sustainable approach.  Every church in the country has a myriad of organisations marketing their services and we do not want to add to this number

  • Our experience tells us that our perception of need is often completely wrong.  Our assessments are clouded by our prejudice and background.  Invariably what a recipient needs only becomes clear through prayer and conversation

  • We believe that God controls the balance of what comes in and out; we mustn’t distort this, and our experience tells us that we don’t need to

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. 

(Matthew 25:40)
