These services are facing increasing demand and pressure placed upon them.
There are many ways you can help, perhaps by making a donation now or leaving a legacy to us in your will or consider asking that we are your choice for an in memoriam collection.
How your support could help Dartmouth Caring:
- £5 pays for one day of our counselling service
- £10 pays for one day’s worth of postage, telephone and internet costs – essential to keep in touch with clients and those that support them
- £50 pays for one memory café
- £100 pays for one support worker for one day
- £1,000 pays for the costs of the Visually Impaired Reading group for one year.
Here are some of the ways you can help Dartmouth Caring:
We operate an annual membership scheme at £20 per year. £10 is a direct donation to the charity and £10 is held as the prize money for a bi-annual draw.
Your membership number is your draw ticket and winner takes all! The last winner took home over £1000! This can make be a rewarding birthday or Christmas present for a family member or friend.
You will receive our newsletters but there is no further obligation on our members. Though if you do want more involvement please feel free to contact us and discuss.
Please print, complete and return the membership form to us if you wish to support the charity and join in the draw.
Every time you shop online via easyfundraising at one of the 3,300 retailers including John Lewis, Aviva, Sainsbury’s and Booking.com, a donation will be made to Dartmouth Caring, and it won’t cost you a penny extra.
It’s really simple to get started;
Sign up for free and get shopping! Your donations will be collected by easyfundraising and automatically sent to Dartmouth Caring. It couldn’t be easier!
There are no catches or hidden charges and Dartmouth Caring will be really grateful for your donations.
Legacies have always made up a small but intermittent part of our income and we believe that for some of our supporters this might be a way you would like to support us in the future. It has the benefit of being tax efficient if done in the right way.
Wills and codicils can be expensive and complex but are a necessary part of any effective plan for the future, for your family, charities and causes that you hold dear.
We have teamed up with StartPoint Law in Kingsbridge to offer some free basic advice and preferential rates to anyone who is a client, or supporter, of Dartmouth Caring.
On their website they provide a very useful planning tool – a form that is useful to steer your thinking in advance of spending time with a solicitor – saving you time and money! You can find this here.
If you have decided to leave a legacy to Dartmouth Caring, we would be grateful if you would kindly advise us. Notifying us of your intention does not commit you, and you may amend your will at any time, but it will help the Charity to plan for the future in the knowledge that it continues to be supported financially and is secure.
The Gift of Caring
We are always grateful to receive bequests or In Memorium collections.
However we actively encourage our members, volunteers etc. and the local community to fundraise on our behalf.
This will enable us to collect a further sum from the Government on top of your donation.
