Donate to OSCAR

In order to benefit as many Christian workers and supporters as possible, we give free access to all of OSCAR's online services. In addition, we offer free basic listings for all Christian agencies, support services and churches. This is essential for maintaining OSCAR's values; to provide a service that's accessible, comprehensive and inclusive.

However, as it costs us around 20p for every visit made to our website, this makes OSCAR significantly dependent on donations to operate. Your contribution enables us to serve all these users with the tools and resources they need to carry out God's mission. As a registered charity, if you are an individual tax payer, OSCAR can also claim back gift aid on any donation given.

We are particularly looking for those who would become regular 'Friends of OSCAR'. Setting up an ongoing monthly donation of £5 or more qualifies for this. You can do this through most of the following methods. Let us know once you've set this up and we'll incude you in our 'Friends' mailing.

You may donate to OSCAR using any one of the following methods:
