Payroll giving is one of the easiest and most effective ways to raise money for RNC. The donation is made straight from your pre-tax pay so you even get tax relief. Speak to your employer as they may already be signed up. They will then ask you for the details of how much you would like to donate to RNC. You can feel assured that each month your money is making a huge difference to the lives of people with sight loss.
Donate a car
Getting rid of an old car can be surprisingly time consuming, especially if it is a bit of a wreck. This scheme does all the hard work for you while also supporting RNC.
Giveacar is a not-for-profit social enterprise that can turn your old car into cash for RNC. They arrange free collection, then either sell your car at auction or scrap it, with the proceeds raised going to RNC.
This is an award winning scheme which uses a nationwide network of auction houses, breakers yards and salvage partners to get the best possible donation, regardless of the condition of your car. They collect the car from your home or office, deal with all the paperwork and contact you a few weeks later to confirm the amount raised.
All you need to do is call 0207 736 4242 or view the Giveacar website and let them know that you are supporting RNC.
Many shops, pubs and offices support RNC by displaying collection tins on their counters and encouraging their customers or colleagues to make donations. We provide the tins, empty them regularly and provide updates on how much has been raised. Do you run your own business or know of a local shop or pub that would support RNC? Just let us know by calling 01432 376 371 or email us at email@example.com.
Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or wedding, you can support RNC on any occasion by asking friends and family to make a donation to RNC instead of buying gifts. We can provide you with display materials and information to share with your guests, and collection tins or a special donation box if you are having a party. Please let us know and we will help in any way we can firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01432 376 371
