Looking for Money

The Do's And Do Not's
Of Internet Fund-Raising

If you are passing by looking for a place to apply for funding for your project then this page will help you make a good presentation. Most funds return applications after reading the first few lines so take time to make a good presentation.

One Day The Beggar Died

One of our partners in a poor country was very upset because he had spent a lot of his wages from his job to put on a free teaching seminar for leaders and pastors but curiously instead of gratitude he had men lining up to ask him to pay them a few dollars a month and they would put his name or ours over their churches. Some would not even take no for an answer and he didn't know what to say. Sadly the same problem comes the way of these pages quite often, and if you click on this page you can read some of things we say in reply, for right or for wrong.

The Money Raising Seminar Notes

Lecture notes from Les Norman, the founder of the DCI Trust which has been giving global support for the world of mission since 1985. This outline is based on 33 years of releasing funds to live with and a great deal more to give with, without making appeals or asking for offerings.

Looking for Money?

Click here to see different places where you can apply for financial help and what you can and cannot ask for. In my considered opinion after almost forty years of serving leaders and projects in the developing world, the very worst thing you can do is to become dependent on money from overseas because it will ruin your faith in Christ now, make you lazy to believe and then in the end it will ruin your work when the money stops coming, which it always does sooner or later. The only exceptions in my mind are helping with start-up funds for people to make money locally to pay for mission and helping someone once only to get started in following the call of God. But if you insist on going down this road despite the warning signs click here only after you have read the previous pages of guidance.  We will ask you questions.

We are sorry but the DCI Fund is not able to fund buildings, businesses, technology, cars, equipment, travel or social action outside a School of Mission program, and we cannopt help with long-term child sponsorship or provide loans, personal support or salaries. Please do NOT send an e-mail asking for any of these things because your request will be instantly refused and you will not be allowed to make any future applications.

Who Are We ?

DCI has never been a fund-raising organisation nor do we make appeals, send out magazines or ask for offerings, rather we are a gathering point for people who feel called to giving and to generosity for the benefit of the last, the lost and the least of the world.

We do not send money out to people we do not know and every application for support through our Looking For Funds page will be subject to lengthy and intense investigation to verify identity, background, character, integrity and the truth about proposals and projects. References will always be required from professional men and women who know the applicant, including at least from reference from the UK, Europe, Australasia or the USA.

We are sorry but the DCI Fund is not able to fund buildings, businesses, technology, cars, equipment, travel or social action outside a School of Mission program, and we cannopt help with long-term child sponsorship or provide loans, personal support or salaries. Please do NOT send an e-mail asking for any of these things because your request will be instantly refused and you will not be allowed to make any future applications.
