Unrestricted Giving (General Fund)

By supporting CMSI’s General Fund, you can help us to continue operating our 100% policy on designated support to our partners – transferring these funds without applying an administrative levy. The General Fund also ‘tops-up’ shortfalls in mission partner support and allows us to respond quickly to emergencies and special requests from our global partners. And the General Fund enables us to work alongside churches and individuals in Ireland, as we support and equip them in mission.

There are a number of ways in which you can support CMSI’s General Fund:

Online Giving

By clicking the relevant link below, you can set-up a Direct Debit for regular donations, or make a one-off payment, in Sterling or Euros. These processes are facilitated by the Charities Aid Foundation (Sterling) and iDonate (Euros), which each offer a simple and secure way to donate to the work of CMSI.

Online Sterling Donations and Direct Debits
Online Euro Donations and Direct Debits

(Donations through these methods incur a small processing charge; the amount depends on the mode of payment.)

Standing Orders


If you’d rather give regularly by Standing Order, you can download our Giving Leaflet by clicking the link below, or you can request a form by contacting the CMSI offices. This allows you to commit a regular amount of support to CMSI’s General Fund and/or to any of our designated funds.

Fundraising Events – Using BT MyDonate

At CMS Ireland, we really appreciate the time, effort and energy that people give to raise valuable support for the work of the Society. Much of the money raised by churches and individuals through special events and initiatives comes to our offices via cheque or cash, but to help you as you help us, we’ve also set-up a MyDonate account and you can see CMS Ireland listed on the BT MyDonate website.

Once your event is added to the website, you can let friends and family know that they can visit your fundraising page to sponsor or donate!

CMSI is always delighted to hear about events that people are holding so please get in touch with our offices to let us know what you are planning. We can provide you with information about CMSI, send you logos and resources, and offer advice and support along the way. Click here to contact us.
