Here for you and your loved ones.
A great way to start fundraising is with an online fundraising page. It's easy to set up your JustGiving page and start raising money for us. Once you've started receiving donations, JustGiving will make sure the donations get to us. They will even claim Gift Aid which can increase each donation by 25% at no extra cost to the donor – they simply have to be a UK taxpayer.
Create your own fundraising page.
Making a regular gift to the Fountain Centre is the most effective way to support our work. A monthly gift allows us to plan ahead and develop our services. You can download a standing order form or set up a monthly donation below.
Of all the gifts we receive, those in memory of loved ones are particularly precious. Some families ask for donations instead of flowers at the funeral service, which can be handled by the Funeral Director and passed on to us. Some families set up donation pages as a tribute on JustGiving, for example, or on specialist memorial sites, such as MuchLoved.
Legacies can make a huge contribution to our work, and we are immensely grateful when people remember the help they have had from the Fountain Centre in this way.
There are many online sites offering advice and comparison services, and all local solicitors’ firms can give advice on will writing. Macmillan offer a discounted will-writing service (without any obligation to leave them any money) and it is also possible to buy a kit and write your own will. The Fountain Centre is not qualified to offer advice itself and has no particular ties to any local firms – instead, we belong to a national organisation for small charities, Remember a Charity, which offers impartial advice on what to consider when thinking about making a will and how to proceed.
We are always very happy to receive good quality raffle and auction prizes we can include in our events throughout the year, and handcrafted items to sell in the Centre and at Christmas Fairs. And if you would like to give us items that we actually need for the service, we have a wishlist on Amazon!
You can make a donation with the push of a button by texting.
