As a small national charity, fundraising is essential to our continued existance. Aside from membership fees, we’re reliant on donations and any money we can make from providing training and similar activities, to fund our ongoing work. This helps us take care of our day to day running, publish newsletters, support volunteers and organise our yearly free and low cost events on topics of interest to our network. It also means we can, sometimes, take on larger projects to meet our charities aims. Like many charities, without a funded core we would be lost. Unlike many bigger charities, we have no paid staff and limited capacity. Whilst this can be a struggle for us, as trustees, it also means that every donation or fundraising event counts.
If you’re interested in helping to raise additional funds for us, there are a few different options.
Use PayPal Giving to donate to HVN – No fees, so 100% goes to our charity.
You can add Gift Aid to your donation if you’re a UK taxpayer.
You can use ‘Just Giving‘ to easily collect and transfer donations and sponsorship from fundraising events and activities. People have donated proceeds from a sponsored slim, sponsored sobriety and wedding gifts.
Our membership fees are kept as low as possible, but they remain one of our steadiest sources of income. Becoming a member of HVN is a great way of supporting us and keeping in touch.
