There are several ways to Donate…
Your donations are so important. With them, we can continue to offer guidance, support and vital services to those living in crisis. Whether it’s a monthly donation or essential food supplies, your kindness makes a huge difference to so many lives.
We’ve made it easier to donate too. Now, there are several ways you can donate to the Good Shepherd. Find out how below.
Regular Monthly Donations
Regular monthly donations are extremely important to the Good Shepherd and help make a really big difference to the lives of those living in financially poverty and isolation. By choosing to give a regular monthly donation, you will be helping us to plan ahead with our finances. A regular gift allows us to have the confidence that day in day out, we will have a steady income stream that we can rely upon.
We can now take donations via text message. This service is provided by Donr – a provider of digital fundraising solutions to the charity sector. Donr works with the UK mobile networks to process your text donation and ensures that the donation reaches us. Find out more about them at www.donr.com.
