Total amount of support per team member is $2000, plus airfare (unless directed otherwise by your team leader).
Due dates for payments (per team member) are:
- June 30 – Applications and $100 deposit due for commitment to the trip
- July 31st – $400
- Aug. 31st – $500
- Sept. 30th – $500 and all paperwork due
- Oct. 30th – $500
Team members: When you reach out to your prospective supporters, they should make any payments directly to your church using whatever methods are supported (e.g. check, credit card, EFT/eCheck) and indicate that the contribution is for the “Impact Japan mission trip,” or as directed by your church’s staff. Checks should be mailed or given to you, the team member, which you should make note of and then give to your church’s team leader.
Team leaders: Record payments for each team member and give the team’s collected checks to your church’s financial administrator (or whomever is responsible). If a receipt is requested, your church should provide that to the supporter.
Prior to each of the four financial deadlines, direct the administrator to issue a check for the entire team, made payable to “Impact Japan,” and send to
Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church
5080 Cahaba Valley Trace

Any money to be used for airfare should be kept by the church and reimbursed to the team member upon purchase of the tickets. Anything donated through the church would typically be tax deductible as a charitable gift, including funds spent on airfare.
