Dear OiC member,
I would like to take the opportunity to update you on OiC’s financial status and commitment as we come to the year’s end. We at OiC have an obligation to pay for material costs of its ambitions.
As a custom I would like to remind you that OiC is not paid by the state, and we rely solely on tithing and giving. Please consider and pray about this as we come to the end of the year.
OiC does not have great financial reserves (about 1,5x the pastor yearly salary for 80% employment) to keep its employment responsibility, nor does it pay for the full costs of the pastor’s salary yet. I say this to assure you that there is a real need.
Practically you could consider two ways of contributing financially:
- (Recommended) Donate either with a one-time or regular donation. This donation is automatically tax deductible.
>> It is important to select Oslo International Church <<
Because NMS is a tax recognised NGO, donations sent to their account will be tax deductible up to an amount of 20.000 NOK per year. This means your tax payment will be reduced by 25% over that amount on your next tax return.
NMS will transfer your donation to OiC.
- Donate directly to account number: 5083 05 58877
You can also give during a service or with VIPPS.
Please contact me directly if you have any questions about donations or church finances in general. We aim to be completely transparent with regards to our spending and income.
Thank you for your donation!
Best Regards on Behalf of the Board of OiC,
