Covering the cost
Agape's total cost to deliver cargo to the missionaries is $4 a pound. Missionaries affiliated with Agape Flights contribute $1.75 a pound toward that cost. Senders are usually quick to include an amount to cover the entire $4 cost and are also encouraged to include an additional gift amount.
We greatly appreciate your ongoing generosity and dedication to our aviation ministry!
Between 30 and 60 volunteers each week provide much of the labor that makes things happen at Agape Flights. Each year, volunteers provide over 16,000 hours of labor in areas such as mail sorting, shopping, cargo preparation, reception, filing, maintenance and construction.
For information on volunteer opportunities, please visit the "Volunteer" page.
Please join us through prayer:
- as we seek the leadership and guidance of the Holy Spirit
- that God will use Agape as a lifeline to all the missionaries and the people they serve
- for the people of Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas; and
- that God's will be done in our lives and through our ministry.
If you would like to forward a prayer request to us, please either call or email us and our staff will be sure to pray for you and your specific need.
If you are in the area, please join us Thursdays at 8:30 a.m. at Agape Flights for our regular chapel service.
Third Party Fundraisers
Events held by individuals or organizations to benefit Agape Flights, Inc. (“Agape”) which are not under Agape’s immediate control are known as third-party or external events.
Because Agape is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and to guarantee that charitable IRS laws are complied with, prior approval must be obtained from Agape whenever Agape is publicized as a designated beneficiary for an external, fundraising event.
Agape’s responsibility for these events is limited to serving as a liaison, providing information and offering advice to event organizers. For information on Agape's Third Party Fundraisers, please see the Agape Flights Third Party Fundraiser Information and Application.
If you would like to fill out an application and submit it to Agape Flights, please follow the instructions on the form and return it to Carole Leman.
