How your donations help

Donations provide a vital source of income for our organisation and are used to pay for things that our mainstream funding doesn't cover.

Most of our families in the refuge come to us with what they stand up in. Below is an example of what your donation could give them.

  • £10 gives a set of pyjamas and underwear for a child who has fled violence
  • £50 supplies a kitchen starter set for a homeless family resettling from the refuge
  • £80 provides an IT course to gain skills and confidence for returning to work

You can make a donation to Oasis via our Just Giving page:

Don’t forget to Gift Aid it to make the most of your donation!

Opt into Gift Aid and donate at least 25% more to Oasis at no extra cost to you!

Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways for UK taxpayers to give money to charity. It is a scheme introduced by HMRC which allows us to increase the value of your donation by at least 25% at no additional cost to you! For example, if you give us £5 a month, we can claim an extra £1.25, making your gift worth £6.25 a month!

To Gift Aid a donation, simply download and print a Gift Aid Declaration form and send it to: Claire Fenley, Oasis Domestic Abuse Service, PO Box 174, Margate, Kent, CT9 4GA or email it to fundraise@oasisdomesticabuseservice.org


Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charity of their choice.

Payroll Giving is one of the most tax-effective methods of giving to charity. Donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, or 60p if you're a higher rate tax payer.

How it works

This table shows how giving through your salary each month can really add up for the charity:

 

Talk to your payroll department to see if you can contribute to charity via GAYE and HMRC will meet part of your donation. Visit www.payrollgivingcentre.org.uk or www.cafonline.org to find out more. 


Leaving a Legacy

By remembering Oasis in your will you can help secure a future in which women and children can live in safety – free from fear.

How do I leave a gift to Oasis in my will?

Have a look at our step-by-step guide to leaving a legacy to Oasis.

If you would like to add a gift to Oasis to an existing will, you can do so easily by using a codicil. A codicil is a supplement that allows additions or changes to be made to a will.

Please consult a professional when making a codicil. You can find a solicitor in your area through the Law Society or by calling 020 7242 1222.

If you'd like help or advice contact us.

What should I do after including Oasis in my will?

Notifying us of your gift will enable us to thank you and keep you updated on our work.
