Thanks for visiting this page. God has called us to this amazing ministry in Italy and our involvement there is made possible by the investment of financial partners who believe in us and our ministry there as we are fully funded by their gifts!
What Your Giving Covers
Your donations go directly towards costs such as ministry, living expenses, travel, supplies, health care, and taxes. We have committed our livelihoods to this ministry, and we would love for you to consider how you may join us in this effort. TEAM is a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.
As is common for missionaries, our financial partner team is always in flux due to the changes in lives of the individual partners and their ability to give regularly. We are always in need of new partners or special gifts from existing team members to fill those gaps.
Furthermore, expanding our partner team enables us to be fully powered for expansion of our ministries. To be available to respond to ministry opportunities in a larger capacity, we are looking for new monthly giving or special gifts annually. This is what being at full capacity would make possible…
We consider it a privilege to serve as an extension of our partner team. If you are excited about what God is doing in Italy and want to be part of it, please see details below about opportunities for your involvement!
Ways to Give
Automatic Contribution Transfer (ACT)
The TEAM ACT Program is a service that authorizes TEAM to deduct monthly donations automatically from a checking account (Electronic Funds Transfer – EFT). This is the preferred method as ACT saves time and money, avoiding postage and check costs, and ensuring that checks won’t be delayed or lost in the mail. It also helps TEAM achieve better stewardship of your contribution by reducing processing time and costs, plus no fee is assessed, as with credit card donations.
Directions to set up automatic monthly contributions for a USA receipt:
- Click here to download the registration form and print it out.
- Fill the form in completely with your contact information; details help us keep accurate records and contact information.
- Include our family ID (J&E Tello 011574) when indicating the missionary the ACT is for.
- Fill in the amount you would like to contribute monthly.
- Pick the date of transferring funds to TEAM, either the 10th or the 25th of each month.
- Read the agreement on the form, sign and date the form.
- For a checking account transfer, we need a voided blank check (not a deposit slip).
- Include form and bank document.
- Donors will receive a USA receipt.
Scan and email it to or mail it to this address:
PO Box 1986
Grapevine, TX 76099-1986
TEAM will do a test run first with no dollars transferred. Your first automatic deduction will appear in about six weeks. You will receive a letter or email confirming that TEAM has enrolled you in this plan and the date of your first contribution. A record of each deduction will appear on your monthly bank statement. You will continue to receive a receipt from TEAM each month unless you request otherwise. You can discontinue your monthly deductions at any time by calling the TEAM Stewardship Department. Increases must be submitted in writing with a signed and dated request to do so.
Give Online (By Credit Card or Electronic Check)
If you prefer to give by credit card or by direct bank transfer online, please go to our family’s giving page on the TEAM website. Set up your automatic giving plan there (monthly, quarterly, or annually) or give a special gift.
Give by Check
If you prefer to give by check, please write “J&E Tello 011574” on the memo line and send here:
PO Box 1986
Grapevine, TX 76099-1986
There are also other ways to give such as giving by phone, electronic bill pay through your bank, and others. You can read all the details and instructions about all your options on the TEAM finance resource page here. If you have any questions specifically for the TEAM finance office, please call the main number (800) 343-3144 and ask for finance.
Thank you for your financial partnership! We know you work hard for your money and we truly appreciate every gift we receive. It’s an honor to be supported by those God calls to our amazing team and we wouldn’t want to do it without you!
