The word charity is written out on stones in sand

Charity Memberships and Donations

Why donate to charity?

There is a huge amount of injustice, cruelty, and carelessness in the world – from child abuse to poverty – and charities work extremely hard to change this. But they can only do this with our support.

Donating to charity can be a very powerful way to stand up for an issue that you feel strongly about. Charities have knowledge, expertise and influence to really make a difference, and donating to charity is one of the most effective ways to ensure your voice is heard.

How do I choose which charity to support?

Whether it’s animals, children or the environment, everyone has something that matters to them. Choosing a charity to support is a personal decision but we’ve made it easier by breaking down some of the UK’s biggest charities into subject areas.
