You may donate securely on line on our payment page
We welcome any contribution you can make to fund our work with street children in Latin America. However much you give, it is very much appreciated by the children whose lives you touch.
When you set up a regular, monthly donation, it allows us to plan for the future and commit funds to specific long-term projects. Installing a new plumbing system in the teen mothers’ safe house in Managua, for example, or funding a literacy program for drug-addicted boys in Honduras.
Plus, it’s generally a more manageable option for you as a donor – set up a monthly donation and relax in the knowledge that the payments are taken care of. (You can of course change or cancel the arrangement at any moment.)
Donate straight from your card or by standing order
You will receive a transaction confirmation email each time a payment is deducted from your card.
To set up a standing order instead, please ask us for a standing order form, fill in your banking details and post it back to us at the Freepost address at the foot of the form.

Payroll giving – A tax-effective way to donate straight from your salary
If you would like to donate regularly to charity and benefit from tax relief at the same time, payroll giving might well work for you. Also known as Give as You Earn (GAYE), this HMRC scheme allows you to set up a regular or one-off donation straight from your pay or pension, with donations made from your earnings before Income Tax is deducted. This means that you’re actually reducing your taxable income and gaining all of the tax relief immediately at your highest rate of tax.
For example, if you donate £10 through payroll giving and are a basic rate taxpayer, you will only have £8 taken off your salary. Plus, if you’re a higher rate taxpayer, the benefits are even greater. Your employer doesn’t need to know which charity you choose to support, and some firms may even match their employees’ donations via payroll giving.
Worth looking into!
Why not speak to your company today about this valuable tax-efficient option, and set up a regular donation towards helping Latin American street children?
