How you can support us
You can help raise funds for the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity in many ways:
Regular Giving is extremely important to our charity as it provides us with a regular income and helps us to budget and plan ahead. You can choose the amount you wish to give each month. If you would like to become a Regular Giver please complete and return the Regular Giver Form here and we will be in touch to set-up the monthly payment with your bank.
Make a donation on our website now by clicking on the Make A Donation button.
Payroll giving is one of the most tax-effective ways for you to donate to charity. Donating directly from your salary gives you and our charity some unique payday benefits. Your donation is taken from your pre-tax salary, meaning that part of your donation comes from money that would have otherwise gone to HMRC.
To give to our charity in this way, your employer must offer a payroll giving scheme.
You can send us a cheque payable to ‘Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity’ and post to us at:
Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity, Ingfield Manor Drive, Five Oaks, Billingshurst, West Sussex RH14 9AX
If you would like to make a donation using your debit/credit card please telephone the office on 01403 780444 and we will take your payment over the phone.
If you are a UK resident tax payer our charity can reclaim tax against any donations you make (currently 25p for every one pound donated). All you need to do is complete, sign and return the Gift Aid Form (Single Donation) or Gift Aid Form (Multiple Donations)
Shop and Donate
How often do you shop online? Have you ever thought about making a donation to Charity at the same time?
There are many ways you can do this. It’s very simple – register with one of the following companies and when you shop with certain retailers you can make a donation at the same time, which is then collected on your behalf from the retailer and passed on to charity Shop and Donate it is a very easy way for you to support us and raise funds for our Charity.
Legacies are extremely important to our Charity; previous legacies have helped us to expand our services and in the future will enable us to provide additional resources for our families and children at our new Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Centre. A gift in your Will will support us now and into the future. We recommend you seek independent professional legal advice on making a Will and use a legally qualified Will writer. This will ensure that the wording is precise and clear and that your true intentions can be carried out.
As a charity, all legacies received by Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity are free from inheritance tax, so your family may have less tax to pay.
