Non-Cash Giving

Non-Cash Giving

By making a non-cash gift, you can have a direct hand in helping Samaritan’s Purse deliver life-saving physical and spiritual aid in emergency situations. These gifts could include property such as vehicles, gold and diamond jewelry, recent model smartphones, game systems, boats, coin collections, and more. Once accepted, Samaritan’s Purse is able to liquidate these items and direct the funds to any of our worldwide projects, turning your non-cash gift into an investment in eternity.

If you have any questions about non-cash giving, would like to arrange your gift over the phone, or prefer to donate items directly to Samaritan’s Purse, please contact our Creative Engagement Team at or call (828) 588-4708. Our team will be happy to discuss how your items could support and help further our work around the globe in Jesus’ Name.

Giving to World Medical Mission

We support over 50 partner mission hospitals worldwide by sending physicians, medical equipment, and supplies to them. If you are interested in donating medical equipment as gifts-in-kind (GIKs), we encourage you to visit our Donating Medical Equipment & Supplies page or call our team at (828) 278-1496 to learn more about what items and supplies are accepted.

Giving to Operation Christmas Child

We also accept gifts-in-kind to help ensure that the millions of shoebox gifts we distribute are each an incredible blessing to the children who receive them. Many items that individuals, businesses, or organizations don’t want can be accepted as gifts-in-kind to be used as perfect filler or “wow” items in shoeboxes. To learn more about what items are accepted or needed, feel free to visit our Operation Christmas Child Gifts-in-Kind Opportunities page or call (855) 356-0252 to speak to a team member.
