Ways To Give
There are countless ways you might be able to practically partner with this ministry! We ask people to visit if able, so that through that visit, God is able to speak His plans to them. Each of us has resources, passions, and connections that were gifted for GOD’s purposes. Please read through the list of ways most bless Arizona Reservation Ministries.
Many ask what we need today. Our greatest need is truly for your prayers. Please take a moment and pray through the Prayer Requests found on this website. We also have a quarterly Needs List that mentions specific needs for today. Thanks for clicking that link below as you pray and let God lead in ways you and provide ARMs as well.
In addition to these ways, corporations have “matching gifts” programs. Perhaps your employer would match the gifts you send to ARM! Participants of Thrivent Financial have become great blessings to us as they designate their contributions toward this ministry. Perhaps your employer would as well! We humbly thank God for ALL of those who sacrificially give so that the lives of kids, teens and even adults are changed for eternity as we provide ‘God’s ARMs around the Reservation.’

Such critical expenses as gasoline, utilities and insurance are part of what is covered by these funds. ARM continues to build homes for families in need. The cost of one home is approx. $28,000. We are also blessed to help in the construction of Apache-led church sanctuaries, Sunday School buildings and more. The majority of those funds (75% of what each person brings) are provided by the Short-Term Ministry teams that join us in building. YOUR gift allows us to complete a home more quickly. Of even greater value to all of us are the funds given through our General Budget which allow us to provide salaries for those of the San Carlos Apache Nation who labor for the Lord on behalf of their People. Please pray for the Lord to increase the number of regular partners who practically provide for such a significant need. As former partners have taken up residence in their heavenly homes, the need for additional partners has increased. We truly thank God for each partner He provides!
With your help, we can continue providing God's ARMs Around the Reservation
Those who partner with this ministry by providing funds toward our general budget are a tremendous blessing!
Individual Staff Support
By partnering specifically with one of the staff/families on the ARM team, their ability to keep their personal bills current, food on their table, etc. allows them to focus more completely on the ministries at hand. You also become a spiritual and emotional partner, praying for them and perhaps encouraging them with notes, texts, etc. This partnership become precious to us all!
Partners for Youth
Friday evenings, teens gather for their own Youth Group meetings, led by ARM team members, temporarily at ARM’s facilities until once again able to meet at a church generously provided on the Reservation that is currently under ARM’s renovation. Dinner, Bible lessons, games and mentoring occur weekly for teens experiencing tragic situations.
partners for children
Since the summer of 2012, over one hundred children, teens and adults have made decisions for Christ, choosing to submit to Him in baptism! Some days, the numbers within our Church Bus were especially high. We’re looking forward to resuming this part of ARM very soon, as two Apache team members step into the leadership of this most valuable ministry.
AZ Tax Credit
Contributions made to Arizona Reservation Ministries may qualify for Arizona State income tax CREDIT. ARM (#20082) meets the qualification requirements and is registered with the State to participate in this great provision. Your donations may be credited back to you if you have paid or owe Arizona income taxes; credits up to $400.00 for a single individual and $800.00 for a couple filing jointly.
Support for Home-building
How do we share the Good news of Jesus Christ through home building? The need for homes on this Reservation stands at over 1,400! Those working on these homes are earning the right to be heard. Moments occur where prompting by the Holy Spirit encourages those that have fallen away to again restore fellowship with Apache Christian churches.
Back Pack Project
We have been blessed to provide what the schools of San Carlos have requested for their students each July before celebrating the beginning of another school year since 2004. In July of 2021, over 1,100 backpacks were distributed, as well as a significant quantity of supplies directly to these schools. Two of their school bus drivers brought one of their vans to pick up many boxes of school supplies, too!
CHRISTMAS STOCKING & Fleece Blankets Project
Each year, Arizona Reservation Ministries is blessed to provide filled Christmas stockings for children, teens and even some adults of the San Carlos Apache Nation thanks to the generosity of our partners as they contribute and spread the word! In partnership with Tribal agencies as Covid Restrictions continued, we were given permission to once again provide these gifts…nearly 1,000 Stockings and almost that many fleece blankets! For many, this will be the most they will receive during the Christmas season.
Fry’s/Kroger Food Stores
For those that purchase their food and more at their neighborhood Fry’s/Kroger Food Stores, ARM is registered through their “Community Rewards Program” #SB630. Simply add us as your “charity of choice” and give…while you shop!
amazon smile program
By clicking on the link below as you shop through AmazonSmile, .5% of your purchases through Amazon will be donated to this ministry! #30-0055333
ARM is blessed to receive donations through Network for Good as people donate through Facebook. We also have members of Thrivent Financial who contribute to that agency, who then deposits those funds into the ARM account. The United Fund of Globe/Miami provides a grant each year, which is another answer to prayer. We are praying for other agencies to provide for the many needs of this ministry. Perhaps you are aware of a possibility and could be part of the answer to that prayer!
Yet another way you can shop for personal items, allowing us to receive a portion of your costs. We want to ask that you would investigate other possible ways for our partners to simply shop as usual, but with the intention of also blessing this ministry.
