WEA Partners to Help Ministries Cut Foreign Wire Transfer Costs

May 25, 2012

New York, NY - May 25, 2012

The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) has partnered with Givingwire.com to offer its members a lower exchange rate and minimal fees for international wire transfers. Powered by Western Union Business Solutions, this online service is simple and secure, allowing you to transfer money from your bank account to another foreign bank account. Best of all by utilizing this service, you are also supporting the WEA, which receives a donation for each transaction made through Givingwire.

This financial service for WEA members comes at a time when churches and ministries are looking for ways to save money and cut unnecessary costs. Instead of paying bank fees for each transaction and a foreign exchange cost, this service will offer a no-fee option and lower those foreign exchange costs.

“Here is an opportunity to save money and at the same time contribute to transforming ministry. What a ‘win’ for the Kingdom,” says Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, Secretary General of the WEA. “I encourage all those in our global community who need to transfer funds internationally to use this service.”

The WEA appeals for Christian ministries, churches, charities, relief & development agencies, mission agencies, businesses, and individuals to use this service to send money internationally. By using this service, you will not only improve the cost-efficiency of your ministry, but also will be supporting the WEA and its projects, one transaction at a time.

To get started, go to www.worldea.org/wiretransfer for more information.

The World Evangelical Alliance is a client of Givingwire for its international wire transfer needs and highly recommends it.
