 Because of the growth of Icthus there’s a critical need for funds to train guides.   Icthus country teams struggle to raise the funds needed to provide training because many of the guides and churches are poor.  Scholarships make a big difference.  The average cost of a scholarship is just $15 for one guide.


1 guide=$15       4 guides=$60      6 guides=$90       8 guides=$120     

  10 guides=$150       12 guides=$180         14 guides=$210       16 guides=$240       

      20 guides=$300        30 guides=$450        40 guides=$600        50 guides=$750


The kids you help will have activities and meetings for one year so they can learn to love God, love their neighbors, and love themselves. 

A whole year of Icthus ministry is just $15 for one child.  



Two children=$30      Three children=$45      Four children=$60   

Five children=$75    Six children=$90


CAMPERSHIPS - Provide a campership to help needy children go to Icthus camps.  Most have never experienced anything like it.

1 Campership=$25       2 Camperships=$50  

3 Camperships=$75     4 Camperships=$100

START A NEW GROUP - Help start groups in more towns in Latin America.  The average cost to start a new group is $150. Once started they can last for years.


$50=1/3 of a group     $100=2/3 of a group      $150=one group    $300=two groups


You can write in the Project, Country, or Icthus leader you would like to designate your gift for.

          Automatic Monthly Gifts

Help kids have Icthus by giving monthly.  Setting up automatic donations through your bank or online makes it easy.   Monthly donors are called Padrinos - an endearing Spanish term for God Parent or Sponsor.  


A Padrino helps monthly so kids can have the Icthus ministry all year.  


Two-thirds Group=$20/mon          One Group=$25/mon         1 and 1/5 Groups = $30 

Two Groups=$50/mon                  Three Groups=$75/mon      Four Groups=$100/mon


Your bank can arrange to send monthly donation automatically or you can set up automatic online monthly giving.
