We can offer you detailed information, including formal legal advice, on any form of donation outlined below.
Go to the JustGiving website where we have our own page. You can make a one-off donation, or set up a monthly direct debit. You can also create your own fundraising page and start raising money on our behalf. JustGiving will reclaim Gift Aid (see below) on our behalf and we pay them a small fee, so on balance we receive £11.74 for every £10 you give. More information on their How JustGiving works page.
It is quick and easy – and free to text from any UK mobile phone network. Just create a new text message which consists of the special text code (specified on the Appeal page that you would like to donate to) followed by the £sign and the amount you want to donate. Example: your text message might read ‘WHCC40 £25’. Then text that message to 70070, and you will receive a text message acknowledgement, so you know your donation has been successful. You will also receive a text message asking if you wish to Gift Aid your donation (you will need to pay income tax at the basic rate or above to be able to do this). We do hope you will agree to Gift Aid.
Cheques should be made payable to British Menopause Society. Women’s Health Concern is the patient arm of British Menopause Society. Any donations made for Women’s Health Concern will be used for the ongoing work of Women’s Health Concern.
Please post your cheque to:

Where eligible, as a UK tax payer, your personal donation will have Gift Aid applied, so increasing the benefit to the charity by 25p per £1.
This scheme enables employees to to give to any UK charity straight from their gross salary. It is tax effective, the donor gaining immediate tax relief, eg. a £10 donation would generate £4 relief for higher rate tax payers and £2.00 for basic rate tax payers.
Bequests of money or property or specified items such as shares, paintings or collections are completely free of Inheritance Tax.
Please remember WHC in your will.
We gratefully accept gifts of shares with a view either to selling or retaining as an investment, subject to the donor’s instructions or advice. Donors get relief on income tax and exemption from Capital Gains Tax.
Similar to share giving, we accept gifts of property or land. Tax benefits to the donor, as above.
If a donor completes a Self Assessment tax return, then any part of a tax repayment can be given to charity.
Unlike some medical charities WHC is not a membership organisation. We are delighted to receive regular or one-off donations for the expert help we offer but do not believe this is a basis to offer further services for a fee. Information is freely available on this website or through personal contact with our nurse advisors. Feedback suggests that women prefer to take our advice and then ‘move on.’
We are not resourced to organise and manage large scale or frequent fundraising events. However, we will always consider your ideas for raising money and offer materials and prizes. Events calendar
WHC does not have a trading company but we gratefully receive donations of gifts that are suitable for auction or raffle prizes.
See Sponsorship. Many organisations regularly give allocations of money to charities chosen by their employees. If your company employs, for example, a high proportion of women, please consider suggesting that your ‘charity committee’ considers voting a grant to WHC.
Promoting our work is crucial. Your support in securing complimentary space for editorials or advertisements in newspapers, magazines and journals is equivalent to a most generous donation. See Advertising opportunities
We frequently review our eligibility to apply for funding through the Big Lottery, Department of Health and local government, eg London Councils. Regrettably, current priorities for public funding do not enable grants to be made towards the provision of women’s health services such as those offered by Women’s Health Concern.
