Like all charities, The Friendship Project relies on donations from the general public for a significant amount of its income. If you can spare even just a pound or two to help towards our valuable contribution to society, then please do feel free to contact our trustee Fundraiser, Richard Barrett (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Friendship Project have partnered with The Charities Trust, a leading donations management company established in 1987, so as to provide opportunities for payroll giving, sponsorship, and credit card payments. The links for this are as follows:-
For individuals, you will need to check if your employer offers payroll giving. This is the link to where you can find out and where they can find out more and download the relevant forms > http://www.charitiestrust.org.uk/payroll-giving-individual/
Sponsorship – Online Fundraising – Sponsor Me
If you wish to run a campaign or event to raise funds for the Friendship Project, then it’s Sponsor Me. Fundraising pages can be created by companies (http://www.charitiestrust.org.uk/sponsor-me-employer/) or individuals (http://www.charitiestrust.org.uk/sponsor-me-individual/).
Matching employee giving is one of the best ways to increase employee engagement and boost an employee’s donation. Many organisations offer it as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme and we have lots of experience in running schemes.

Shopping on Amazon
Amazon have a branch called Amazon Smile which donate 0.5% of £ of your purchases to your chosen charity. The Friendship Project is now registered as a charity on it. You shop in exactly the same way but just log in via Amazon Smile rather than straight forward Amazon on: https://smile.amazon.co.uk. You will need to select us as your chosen charity when you first log in – we’re down as The Friendship Project or you can search with our charity number 517684. Once you’ve selected us once it remembers it to your account but you must log in via Amazon Smile each time rather than the normal Amazon site. Thank you, and happy shopping!
Cheques – can be made payable to The Friendship Project for Children and posted to:
Cheryll Rawbone – Chairman, c/o 20 Northumberland Road, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, CV32 6HA.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to those individuals, companies, and other organisations – some of whom are annual donors – who have given and continue to give so generously to The Friendship Project to support our valuable work.
