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 Donating help page.
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:
Women’s Health Concern Spracklen House Dukes Place Marlow Buckinghamshire SL7 2QH
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.
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.
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.’
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.
