Please Join this Giving Circle and pledge your Donation

By joining this Giving Circle and committing to either a monthly or one-off donation, you’re joining with like-minded individuals and collectively making a bigger impact.  The benefits of joining this Giving Circle include:

  1. Regular Updates on how our money is being used.  Through this web page you’ll receive regular updates on how our money is being used and the difference it is making, creating a closer bond between our Giving Circle and the charity we’re supporting.
  2. A Direct communication channel with the Charity.  You can contact the administrator of this Giving Circle via email if you ever have any questions about this charity or want to do more to help.
  3. We Maximise our Impact.  Sometimes making small donations on your own can feel like a drop in the ocean, and you’re not sure if your money is making a difference.  As part of a Giving Circle we make larger donations which we know makes a difference because we get updates from the charity.  Plus it’s more efficient for Charities to collect donations and communicate with you via a single Giving Circle – meaning more of your money goes to the good cause, and less is spent on administration, accounts and overheads.
  4. Making big Donations feels amazing! Donating $50 feels nice, donating $5,000 feels amazing.  And studies show that being part of a Giving Circle means even if you can only afford to contribute a little, it still feels like your giving a lot!

We welcome Regular Giving or one-off donations

One of the biggest challenges any Charity faces is knowing where the ‘next money’ is coming from.  One-off donations and fundraising are extremely important, but they make it harder for Charities to plan long-term.  That’s why regular giving is so important.  When someone choose to give regularly to a charity, even if it’s just a small amount it means:

  1. Certainty of Funding.  With regular giving a charity can start to plan for the future, know there is recurring revenue each month
  2. Reduces administration costs.  Fundraising costs money, but the costs associated with regular giving are by far the lowest, meaning your donation goes further
  3. Creates a connection with a Charity you love.  As you receive regular updates from the Charity it creates a real connection with the money you are donating and the outcomes it is achieving, meaning you connect more closely with the charitable journey.
  4. You’re in control.  We appreciate that peoples circumstances change and through the MyGivingCircle dashboard you can change or cancel your regular giving at any time

So you can tell we love people who can commit to regular-giving!  But of course we recognise that regular-giving doesn’t suit everyone and we absolutely welcome one-off donations as well.
