Our Annual Report looks back on 2020 and enables us to tell the story of an extraordinary year.

It tells the story of the leaders that you supported, like Cornel and his youth ministry team in Moldova, who received leadership training because of generous supporters like you. They learnt the value of flexibility while living in a post-Soviet context which has an inherited culture of rigidity. Their new found skills helped them support 200 young people through the challenges of lockdown.

Thanks to your generosity, we received £634,423 in 2020, almost exactly the same as we did in 2019 despite the difficulties of Covid-19!

We’re so grateful for the supporters that helped write the stories of 2020 and if you’d like to help write the stories of leaders impacting communities in 2021, please get in touch.

Make a world of difference to a new generation of Christian leaders

It takes sustained and strategic support to equip Christian leaders to share the hope of Jesus with people in some of the world’s hardest-to-reach places.

To make this happen, we need individuals, businesses and charitable trusts who share this vision to partner with us.

Please do get in touch if you are considering making a significant investment in our work (a one-off gift over £2,000). Alongside regular personal updates, you’ll receive invitations to special events and trips, and opportunities to hear first-hand about the impact of your giving from Innovista’s inspiring international trainers.

Trusts and Foundations

We have a long history of working with charitable trusts and foundations and the resources that they provide contribute about 40% of our annual income each year. Support from charitable trusts and foundations is enabling us to fund a number of our international staff salaries and country budgets in hard-to-reach places as well as providing a crucial source of unrestricted funding.

Innovista has developed long-term relationships with, and met the reporting standards of, organisations like Oxfordshire Community Foundation, Stuart Hine Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation and Imagine Foundation.
