How to donate
Donation policy donations are accepted only in accordance with the following policy: if a donor requires the ICS to apply a donation for specific objectives or projects (whether in response to a specific appeal or otherwise) and the amount(s) received exceed(s) the sum(s) necessary to fund these objectives or projects, or if it is not possible or appropriate for any reason to fulfil or proceed with the stated objectives or projects, ICS will use the excess or all of the donation(s) received for its general charitable objects. For legal and accounting reasons, ICS regrets that it cannot accept donations on any other basis.
Disclosure of your identity If you send in a donation and express the wish that we use it for a particular individual or chaplaincy, we do not routinely disclose your identity the chaplaincy concerned, only the amount that a donor has given. Accordingly the individual or chaplaincy concerned may not know that you have made a gift or gifts. We will make an exception to this practice in connection with support of e.g. particular individuals (where you might like to receive prayer news direct from them) or major building projects (where there may be a thanksgiving service or event that donors are invited to by the chaplaincy once the project is finished). If you want us to pass on your contact details to the individual or chaplaincy e-mail Maggie at ICS or contact the individual or church directly and let them know that you have sent a gift in to ICS. You will appreciate that as charities we and the chaplaincies try to save costs by not receipting gifts twice!
Enabling ICS's mission
ICS is first and foremost a mission agency. At the heart of our work is helping people who speak English discover, follow and serve the Christ of the Scriptures. Since 1823 we have been working around the world making the most of opportunities to spread the gospel, helping many, especially those living away from home. We work mainly in continental Europe and North Africa, two of the most spiritually needy regions of the world. ICS receives no direct funding from the Church of England to carry out its work - we are funded entirely by donations from individuals, supporting churches and trusts. We need people, most importantly, to pray for us, our mission partners, their churches and those we and they seek to reach with the message of the Cross. Across England we have a network of prayer groups. For contact details contact email@example.com
Your support can enable us to
* plant new
churches. ICS typically funds a new congregation (on a reducing basis)
for several years so that it can afford a minister. We cover costs
such as salary, pension, medical insurance, accommodation, expenses

Please support our work by becoming a Friend of ICS and help English-speaking people from all over the world, and English-speakers in countries in which we work, find Christ and follow him.
We encourage Friends to donate annually at least UK £32/€40/CHF60 (or UK £16/€20/CHF30 for concessions: the unwaged, over 65s or a full-time students). However, please be as generous as you can and use tax-efficient giving if possible.
2012 Member's annual donations must be at least £32/€40/CHF60 or £16/€20/CHF30 for concessions. If couples both wish to become members, and receive joint mailing to the same address, then the second applicant need only donate at least half his/her own eligible rate (i.e. £16/€20/CHF30, or £8/€10/CHF15 for concessions) so e.g. a couple where one is full rate and one concessionary must donate at least £40 annually.
remember us in your will - see ICS
and your will. Your legacy can enable English-language ministry
for the benefit of future generations.
