Giving to IEC
IEC has been serving the international population of the capital region for more than four decades. This would not have been possible without the generous giving of people like you! While subsidies from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Finland and other sources help us cover some of the expenses, the majority of our resources comes from individuals.
Where do my donations go?
Setting up a standing order is the best way to give regularly. You can decide where you want your donation to go:
Tithes & General Giving: Giving to the general account supports the day-to-day ministries and services of the church.
Care Fund: This is an ongoing fund designed to enable us to give small loans to meet sudden and unforeseen need in desperate situations.
Missions: A percentage of our annual giving is used to support a number of missionaries.
Periodically, we will make you aware of opportunities to support a specific ministry initiative (Kid's Camp, Alpha etc.).
See below for the reference numbers.
How does IEC uphold financial accountability?
The International Evangelical Church in Finland is committed to honoring God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability to ensure the financial integrity of the IEC remains above reproach.
We accomplish this through a system of internal controls and an internal budgeting and reporting process to the church council by the treasurer.
An annual audit is performed by an independent certified auditor in accordance with the Finnish Law.
A separate auditor audits the decisions and procedures of the church council.
