MyTenth Missions Fundraising

This page is instructions for people participating in Tenth’s Short Term Missions projects. If you are looking to give to Tenth Foreign Missions, please instead visit the giving page and give to the Outreach fund.

As a participant of a short-term trip, there are several tools available to you, once you complete the trip’s registration and application process.

MyTenth User Account

  • If you did not already have a user account, one has been created automatically for you. You will receive a separate email with your credentials.
  • If you already have a user account, you will receive an email reminding you of your username. If you have forgotten your password, you will be able to reset it.

Balance Tracking

When you log on to MyTenth, go to your profile and click Involvement > Registrations. In the Mission Trip Funding section, you will see the Trip(s) you are registered for. There, you will find:

  • The cost of the trip and the amount that has been paid, both by you and your donors.
  • A “Funding Page” button — When you click this button, you’re taken to a funding page dedicated to your personal portion of the trip funding. Share this page with prospective donors.
  • An “Email Supporters” button — Use this button to email your potential supporters, described below.
  • There will be a tracker showing the cost of the trip, how much has been paid (both by you and by your supporters), and the balance.

Email Potential Supporters

You can send emails to potential supporters directly through MyTenth. To do so:

  1. Go to your profile and click Involvement > Registrations. In the Mission Trip Funding section, you will see the Trip(s) you are registered for.
  2. Click the button, “Email Supporters”.
  3. ​​For each potential donor, enter their email address or phone number to either find them in the database or add them anew.
  4. Click the Edit button to edit the salutation for an individual, to select which supporters receive the email, or to remove someone from the list.
  5. The body of the email will be pre-populated with a template we’ve provided. Edit the body of the email (there is a prompt for you to put in personal information), and be sure to include your name at the bottom. Link your personal giving page by selecting the text “the best way to do so is online here”, click on the “Link” button (top row, left of the yellow button), and paste your giving URL. Be sure to leave the {salutation} at the beginning of the email.
  6. Send a test to yourself and then send the email.  Note: If you send the test email, you will not see a salutation with your name. The actual supporter will see the salutation, something like ‘Dear John’.

Your Supporters

  • Those receiving your email will have a link to donate online toward your trip.
  • They will receive a confirmation email thanking them for their donation.
  • You will receive an email notice with the donor’s name and the amount donated, unless they check the box not to send a notification.
  • All donations are applied to your balance and they are recorded on the donor’s giving record, as the donation is tax deductible. They will receive a statement at the end of the year for tax purposes.
  • While donations can be applied to your balance, they are donations to the team, and to Tenth Presbyterian Church.  If donors give more than your balance, the credit is distributed to other participants, and potentially to other related programs.
