Multiplying Loaves & Fishes

The Feeding of the 5,000 is the only miracle (apart from the resurrection) which is present in all four canonical Gospels:


The narrative tells the story of thousands of people who were following Jesus and became hungry. Five loaves and two fish would never satisfy everyone, but when placed in the hands of the Master, it multiplied and everyone was satisfied, with baskets of leftovers. The lesson in the story is this: What do you have in your hands? What  are your loaves and fish, and are you willing to place those in the hands of the Master to be multiplied?
The team at Mission Southside, along with a fiscally responsible Advisory Board, challenges you to put a portion of your financial loaves and fishes in the hands of Jesus through Mission Southside.
Won’t you consider making a sacrificial gift as we continue our good work?

United Way Directed Giving

Under the United Way donor directed giving program, Mission Southside is eligible to receive donor-directed contributions through the annual United Way of Greater Kansas City fundraising campaign.

Under this program, donors to United Way may designate all or a portion of their gift to Mission Southside.

United Way uses a “write in” approach, in which donors simply need to:

1.  Request a “Donor Directed Giving” form when making their United Way pledge. This form is separate from the pledge form and must be requested from the person in the company responsible for collecting United Way pledge forms. Contributors using United Way’s online giving tool are provided the option to designate their gift when making their online pledge.

2.  Write in the name of the organization and a phone number or mailing address. If the phone number or address is unknown, the name of the organization is sufficient.

3.  Indicate the amount—whether all or a portion—of their pledge that they want to direct to the organization.

When United Way receives a designated contribution to Mission Southside, we will be contacted to provide verification of our services and 501(c)(3) status. Mission Southside will receive payments over the course of the year as the pledge is collected (minus 12.5% for administrative costs).

Your designated United Way contributions are a wonderful way to support the work of Mission Southside.
