We're encouraging you to make lockdown count by thinking of one way in which you've saved money by 'missing out' during the Covid-19 lockdown and donating that amount to CMSI.
We'd also love to share your story.

Fundraising for CMSI
One of the best ways to raise money for CMSI and our partners is through fundraising activities and events. This can be particularly effective as a way of involving the whole church and providing a focus for your giving.
Fundraising events offer a chance for connection and engagement across the wider parish community. They also provide an opportunity to share about your Global Partners and their work or to highlight your link with CMSI.
We love hearing about different fundraising initiatives across Ireland. Individuals and churches raise support for CMSI and our partners in lots of different ways: cake sales, coffee mornings, sponsored walks, sponsored runs, sponsored sings, talent shows, beetle drives, craft fairs, parish lunches, table quizzes...and much more!
Whatever you choose to do, CMSI can help promote your event and we can provide some literature or resources.
Other ways to raise funds for CMSI
Online giving for your fundraising
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. You can see CMSI 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!
