You have enabled Columban missionaries to be present with people in times of great need. Through them you have been a friend to victims of earthquakes, floods, war, political oppression and crushing poverty. Through them you have shared the spiritual support and hope of the Gospel.
We rely directly on people like you to enable us to carry out our Mission. If you would like to make a donation to our work, please do so using one of the methods explained below.
How you can Help
Increase the value of your Gift
Charities can gain extra income every year if donors avail of tax-effective giving. A scheme is in place that applies a rate of 31% to all donations over €250.
For example a donation of €250 will mean that the Columbans will actually receive €362, while a €500 donation will increase to €725.
In order for a charity to benefit from this scheme the donor has to complete a tax rebate form. There are two versions of this form.
One of them, called an Enduring Certificate, covers a five year period and means that any donations made by that donor in the five year period over €250 will benefit from the scheme.
The other form is an Annual Certificate which allows the charity to claim back tax on the donation for the previous year only.
If you complete one of the forms to allow us to claim these additional funds it will make your generous donation even more valuable. The Enduring (5 year) cert is more convenient but either way we will contact you each year to ask if we may use the form for that year.
You can use the calculator below to see how the value of your donation can be increased
If you are a taxpayer please take a few minutes to download and fill out one of these forms :

After you complete your form, simply send it freepost to:
