Rather than using your £10 donation directly towards purchasing an essential item that a client so desperately needs, Charity Link works in a unique and innovative way to make your donations or the money you raise go further and make even more of a difference!
By helping to fund our expert Casework service (our small and dedicated team have an expert knowledge of the thousands of benevolent funds and charitable trusts in the UK that have money to assist people in need) we are able to gain grants of a much higher level.
In simple terms, for every £10 donated to Charity Link we can go out and ‘untap’ £50 from charitable trusts that are available to help local people in need – all of that £50 goes directly to buy the essential items needed by our clients. We then deliver items to them direct.
If it was not for Charity Link, the people who need support and the charitable trusts with money available to help would often not find each other. Working in this unique way is how we are able to provide over £700,000 worth of items each year to the most vulnerable people in Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire and how your gift of £25 can become £125 – a bed for a local child in need!
We can’t do it without you – every penny you raise makes a difference.
