Payroll giving

Payroll giving via ‘Give As You Earn’ is a simple and effective way to donate a regular amount to Alexander Devine. It’s very easy to set up, and it allows us to plan ahead, knowing that there is a regular income stream coming in.

You can donate straight from your gross salary, and receive immediate tax relief, so if you donate £25, it will only cost you £19.50. If you would like to contribute in this way, just contact your Payroll Department and ask if they already operate a ‘Give As You Earn’ scheme and, if they do, say that you would like to sign up.

A gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will is a lasting way that you can support us and help us continue to reach more children and their families in the future.

Any donation, small or large, will be gratefully received. Whatever you decide, your solicitor will be able to advise you on the best option for your circumstances. If you would like further information about how to do this, please do get in touch with our team fundraising@alexanderdevine.org.

Gifts in memory

Fundraising in memory of a loved one can make a fitting tribute to that special person and the funds raised will help future generations.

You can do this using our Just Giving page. Click on the ‘Fundraise for us’ button, log in or register and then select us as your charity. You can then create a ‘Remembering Someone’ page and invite people to donate. 

If you are organising or attending the funeral of family or close friend, you might like to commemorate their life by donating to Alexander Devine rather than buying or sending flowers. Contact us on 01628 822777 or email fundraising@alexanderdevine.org for more information.

Set up a fundraising page

If you are fundraising for us, please do get in touch about your plans so that we can see how we can support your efforts.

If you want to set up your own online fundraising page to share with your friends and family, you can do this here.

Send eCards and donate the cost of greeting cards

An innovative way to support us – send ecards with DontSendMeACard.com and give the cost of printed greeting cards and stamps to Alexander Devine. Everyone will see that you donated and you can feel good about not wasting trees!

We have pulled together a few designs, but please do get in touch if you have some other suggestions. 

Please stay in touch!
