About MB Mission:

Founded in 1883 by the Mennonite Brethren Church, MB Mission is a missionary organization whose primary focus is to “multiply healthy disciples and missional leaders.” MB Mission has four main programs: Mobilization, Holistic Church Planting, Mission Capacity Building, and Training and Team Health.

MB Mission’s Mobilization program involves financially supporting Mennonite Brethren Church members in serving short-term and long-term missions abroad. Holistic Church Planting involves helping local leaders in underserved countries to transform their communities and create missional churches that can grow and reproduce themselves. MB Mission’s approach to this focuses on what they call Asset-Based Community Development, which involves utilizing the resources already available to communities to spark a lasting transformation. Mission Capacity Building involves MB Mission working alongside its partner church networks to help them develop their own church planting initiatives. Finally, Training and Team Health focuses on equipping and providing resources to members of the MB Mission team to serve effectively in their missionary duties.

MB Mission is a big-cap charity with donations of $8.2m in F2016. Its administrative costs are 8% of revenues, and its fundraising costs are 1% of donations.

The charity has $4.7m in total funding reserves, of which $217k is donor-endowed, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio, excluding donor-endowed funds, of 58%. This means that MB Mission can cover 7 months of its annual program costs using its existing reserves, indicating a need for funding.
