All money donated to this fund will go to the purchase of Bibles. You can opt to donate Bibles to Australia or overseas. For example, every $50 that is given to The Gideons for Scriptures pays for 10 Bibles, or 40 New Testaments, to be distributed.
Since the establishment of The Gideons in Australia in 1956, almost 16 million copies of the Bible have been distributed.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God which is “the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16).
Is there a more precious gift anyone can give?
Of the 200 countries in which The Gideons International operates, only 12 are self-funded. The other 188 countries depend on assistance from countries like Australia to provide the necessary funds for Bible distribution. In many of these countries, it is unlikely that large parts of the population would ever be able to afford to buy a Bible for themselves.
During the 2016-2018 period, we have adopted Cambodia as a country of focus. We aim to raise $250,000 to pay for one year's supply of Bibles in that country. Find out more about this appeal.
You can touch lives by giving to the Gideons.
