Philanthropy

‘Where there is charity and wisdom,
There is neither fear nor ignorance.’

St. Francis of Assisi

We’re on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. To that end, we’re always looking for individuals with a heart for philanthropic giving – for gifts that have a significant, transformative impact on the work we do.

What is your passion?

Our Key Relationships Team is committed to working with you to understand your passions and interests, and match these to our projects. We promise to keep you fully involved in the project you’re supporting with regular updates and project visits.

We live in a world of remarkable contrasts, full of challenges and opportunities. In places like China and Africa, Christianity is growing at an extraordinary rate, with Scripture in high demand. Yet here at home, the Bible is viewed by many as insignificant and irrelevant, with 9 in 10 not engaging with it at all, according to our Pass it On research.

Our desire is to connect you with an opportunity to have a notable impact and bring about long-lasting change.

Around the world

Outside of Europe, the reality is that the world is becoming more, not less, religious. Christianity is growing.

Our international work focuses on three regions where a growing Church is experiencing unique pressures and challenges, where the demand for Scriptures is often greatest.

In the Middle East

In the Middle East

The Church is under pressure from religious extremism and many Christians face persecution and displacement. The hope of Scripture is needed now more than ever.

In Africa

In Africa

A growing Church exists in an often precarious social and political context, where many are looking to find refuge in the word of God.

In China

In China

A rapidly growing Church in a country of global importance needs access to the Bible, well-trained church leaders and an environment that will support continued growth.

At home

On the one hand, Bible engagement in England and Wales is dropping. Bible ownership is falling and the Bible is associated with the declining religious beliefs of previous generations.

Yet, on the other hand, there is an increased appetite for spiritual experience and a sense that the Bible has something to offer contemporary questions and challenges.

In this context we believe there is a tremendous opportunity to help people to recognise the Bible’s value for them, their families and communities – even for society as a whole. Your partnership can significantly support the work of bringing the Bible to life here at home.

Our commitment to you

  • Assign a member of our team to personally manage your gift.
  • Send you regular updates about the impact of your gift.
  • Invite you to meet key staff at home and overseas.
  • Invite you to special events, such as the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast.
  • Arrange project visits so you can meet the people you’re helping and experience the difference you’re making first-hand.
