Ekklesia exists financially on modest income from publishing, project fees, and donations.
We receive no large corporate or political contributions and we are not affiliated to any party, religious organisation or commercial interest group.
Since 2006 we have been a company limited by guarantee, structured and operating on a not-for-profit basis. Since 2022 Ekklesia has been run through Ekklesia Publishing, a sole trader business of the director.
Over the past six years Ekklesia has existed on donors and project/sales income averaging at between £1,000 to £3,000 per year. We are always happy to answer questions about finance and believe strongly in transparency for the think-tank sector.
From 2013 to 2016 only, Ekklesia received regeneration funding from a charitable trust. Our annual income peaked at £92,000 during that period.
The maximum individual contribution we have ever received is £2,500. Over the past twenty years we have had small donations from some 500 individuals, to whom we are extremely grateful.
We would especially like to thank the Rev Willard E. Roth, Alice M. Roth, Frank Strang and Bishop David Atkinson for their kind support in helping to make this new site and our publishing sites possible.
We are currently considering a new financial partnership scheme and collaboration on fundraising with partner organisations.
