What We Do
The Columbans are committed to working with the poor in many countries throughout Asia, Latin America and the Pacific. Their work is generally in areas that suffer from serious poverty, political unrest and severe climate change problems. Believing that life is a gift to be shared by all, Columban missionaries work with many communities in their struggle to meet basic needs in health, education and housing.
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.

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
