Frequently asked questions

We partner with CAF Donate to handle and process online donations. Unfortunately they have a fixed minimum of £5 for one-off gifts and £3 per month for on-going gifts.

We will direct your donation to wherever the funds are needed most. Whatever size your gift we can assure you that it will be spent effectively and prudently. In 2015/16, 97% of our total expenditure was on charitable activities, although we expect this percentage to be lower in 2016/17 as our fundraising activities and costs are rising.

Expenditure pie-chart (2014-15)

CAF Donate will deduct a fee of between 2 and 3% from your donation depending on the payment method you use. Additionally, they will charge a one-off flat fee of £1 for a new direct debit arrangement.
