Help Transform Lives and End Hunger

During Lent we rededicate ourselves to prayer and action alongside and on behalf of people who are in need.

When we consider that malnutrition contributes to nearly half of all preventable deaths among children under age five around the world, and one in four children under age five is severely malnourished, we must believe that transformation is possible and do all we can to make it happen.

Your special Lenten gift will support our vital efforts to help children and families here in the U.S. and around the world get the food they need to survive and thrive.

Please make your Lenten gift during this time of prayer and reflection to transform lives and end hunger.

Bank Routing & Account Numbers

To make a payment directly from your bank account, you will need to provide the routing number for your bank, as well as your account number. Both of these numbers can be found at the bottom of a check issued for your bank account.

At the bottom of your check you will find three numbers — the routing number which is always 9 digits long for U.S. banks, the account number which can be up to 17 digits long, and the check number which will match the number found in the upper right corner of the check. These sets of numbers can appear in a variety of orders on your check. However, you will always find the routing number surrounded by this symbol Check Routing Number Symbol, and the account number will always be to the left of this symbol Check Account Number Symbol.

Please use the image below for an example of how your routing and account numbers may appear on your check.

Sample Check:

The routing number comes first and is surrounded by the symbol, the account number comes next and is followed by the symbol.
