Whether you want to donate time by volunteering at our Crisis at Christmas centres, or raise vital funds for Crisis through community events, here are a few more ways that we can build a partnership that works for you and your colleagues.
Gift in kind
Do you have surplus goods, services or space which you could donate to us? Your company’s resources could be an invaluable way to support Crisis and help us deliver our vital work over Christmas and throughout the year.
We have a bespoke list of item donations we need to deliver Crisis at Christmas for our guests. Please get in contact with us if you would be interested in donating at Christmas. Visit our Christmas Wishlist page for items we are looking for, including warehouse space, catering and cleaning equipment, and medical supplies.
If you would like more information or would like to donate gifts for over Christmas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0207 426 8528.
Donate to our shops
Another great way to support our work is to donate to our Shops from Crisis. As well as raising money to support our work, our shops offer training and employment opportunities for homeless people to develop the skills needed to work in the retail industry. Visit our Shops page for more details.
Payroll Giving is a really simple way to support Crisis. It is the most tax effective way of making a donation, as funds are deducted from your salary before tax.
For example, donating £10 each month to Crisis this way will only cost you £8 out of your pay packet.
