85% of the first $30 of every sponsorship is used for program expenses, including:
child's direct benefit
80% is given for… the child’s education-related expenses, food and other essentials, and the means of providing this assistance locally. Depending on the mode of sponsorship, this could cover tuition, books and uniforms at an ICCM school, programming in a Holistic Child Development center, residential care so the child can access public school, or the cost of education and necessities provided through the family.
high school scholarships
5% is given for… high school scholarships for students whose sponsors stop sponsoring before the student graduates, or who never were chosen by a sponsor.
15% is given for… the cost of leading and administering the global program from our office in Indianapolis, IN. This includes salaries, travel, communications, promotion and the expenses related to oversight and proper financial management.
Gifts to sponsored children (aside from regular sponsorship contributions) have no administrative fee deducted. 10% administrative/ processing fees are deducted from contributions to our special funds or projects.
No goods or services are provided to the donors in exchange for tax-deductible gifts. International Child Care Ministries is a subsidiary of Free Methodist Church of North America, EIN 35-0877568. ICCM thanks you for giving to improve the lives of children in need and will make every effort to honor your requested gift designation. In the event this is not possible or funding exceeds the need, your gift will be applied to a similar area of ministry which best meets the needs of children.
Note: International Child Care Ministries (ICCM) does not appear on most online charitable giving search engines because its nonprofit status is tied to the Free Methodist USA. FMCUSA is a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).

Your remittance form is your reminder. If your support is 2 months or more overdue, you will receive a reminder in the mail. If you send annual checks, you may request a reminder by either using the form below or by calling our office at 800.342.5531 ext. 502.
Your email address is the information that is used to access your online account. If we do not have it on file, then it is more difficult for you as the donor to manage your giving on your own. We also use email addresses to contact donors when they have questions that may relate to donations or their sponsorships.
Having a phone number on file for you serves as the quickest way for ICCM staff to get ahold of you if there are issues with your account, or if we are responding to an inquiry that you have.
Unfortunately, no. We maintain a separate database, so please update your information in your account or by calling us at 800.342.5531 ext. 502.
No, we do not. We’re 100% funded by donors and sponsors.
No. Although ICCM is under the FMCUSA ‘umbrella’ we do not receive any subsidization from FMCUSA.
