In order to benefit as many mission folk as possible, we give free access to all of OSCAR's information. In addition, we offer free basic listings for all mission organisations, support services and churches. This is essential to maintaining one of OSCAR's crucial values; providing information that's comprehensive and inclusive.
However, this makes OSCAR significantly dependent on donations to operate. Your financial 'investment' in our work will mean that we can develop OSCAR and improve our services to all. As a registered charity, if you are an individual tax payer, OSCAR can claim back an extra amount on any donation given.
You may donate to OSCAR using any one of the following methods:
