A third important form of support is financial support. As we are not paid a salary by AIM or by the churches that support us, there is the need of financial support to make our mission possible.
All donations are welcome, large and small, just once or regularly. Your donations will be used for e.g. visa and other paperwork, housing and schooling. Besides those practical matters we will have certain costs in the ministry work as well (travelling, local helpers, study materials etc.). Finally, we need to save for home-assignments – after a couple of years we will have furlough to visit family and friends.
Regular donations may be paid with the following form(s):
Mandate form for donors from the UK.
The form can be send by post to AIM-UK (address can be found on the forms). Please download and print the forms do not e-mail but send the forms through the post. Banks will only act on the instructions if it is an original form (not a scanned signature).
We advise donors from other countries to contact AIM directly as forms and procedures differ per country:
For other countries please contact one of the offices above and ask for the applicable e-mail address.
Donations for our car:
We are very thankful for all the gifts we have received. We could buy a good car and we even have money left to pay the extra adjustments and reparations. We do have ongoing costs (repairs; maintenance cost approx € 2000 per year). If you want to give specifically for our transport you can use the same procedure as described above, just mention to the office that it is a gift for the car.
On off donations can be done by sending a cheque or bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to AIM International and sent to AIM International, Halifax Place, Nottingham, NG1 1QN (please send a small letter to explain it is to support us).
If you want to make a bank transfer then you will need to contact the office for a reference number (otherwise when the money comes into their bank they do not know it’s for our support).
Also, tell the office when your donation is meant for our car.
One-off payments can also be done with the form above.
For sponsors from other country please contact the AIM office in your country (see addresses above)
