Welcome to the Combined Services Third
Assisting less fortunate people in developing countries for over 30
The Fund, since itís foundation in 1980, has to date spent over Ä8,000,000 of contributors money on development
projects and emergency aid grants in various countries throughout the Third
Contributions come from employees and pensioners of the Civil
Service, An Post, eir and other state agencies; through deduction at
source from salary/pension of 0.1% or 0.2% of basic pay as chosen by the
contributor, i.e. one cent or two cent in ten euros of pay/pension.
Staff and pensioners may now also make
contributions to the fund by way of:
(b) Single donation/s to the Fund Bank account
-amounts as chosen by the contributor.
The Fund is operated on a completely voluntary basis and
administration costs are kept to a minimum, currently less than 5%
of the annual value of the fund.
The needs of the developing world are unfortunately still great
in many cases beyond our comprehension.
The Fund receives many more appeals for help than it can assist.
