Strategic & transparent giving, transformational & effective impact
Our work impacts some of the most vulnerable children, from orphans to those living on the streets, providing a human response to a human need.
There are 3 ways to become a philanthropic giver to the children we support
The Impact Network
Improving the quality of our work, our internal capacity to create change and investing in innovation are at the heart of what we are tirelessly working towards. We have launched a new major donor programme - The Impact Network - to create a very personal connection between a small group of strategically & philanthropically minded, successful individuals and Hope for Children.
Members of The Impact Network come together to use their resources, knowledge and networks to invest in rapid, sustained and impactful change in vulnerable children's lives in key locations across the world. Our ambition is that by 2020, we will have an Impact Network supporting each of the countries we work in, financially underpinning the strategy and impact attached to each and collaborating with us to develop our own capacity to make a lasting difference.
Trusts & Foundations
Hope for Children is fortunate to work with a large number of charitable trusts and foundations of all sizes to deliver transformational projects across Education, Healthcare and Empowering Families.
Funding from trusts and foundations is essential in driving our life-changing impact, such as our Childhood Regained Project in Northern Ghana. With the support of Comic Relief, we are working with child and communities to stop child exploitative labour. We are helping 3,700 children access education and training, while equipping 1,500 women and families to support their children’s education through sustainable livelihoods.
Leave a Legacy
Leaving a donation in your will to a charity is an amazing way to ensure that you will continue to have a transformational impact on the lives of children beyond your own life. The instructions within your will for distributing those possessions/gifts are known as legacies. Legacies to UK charities are exempt from inheritance tax, so it may help reduce the amount of tax payable if the estate is over the exempt threshold. There are 4 main types of gift commonly left to a charity in a will: Pecuniary Gift, Residuary Gift, Specific Request and Contingent benefit.
As a small charity, any gift that a donor is able to make will make a significant difference to the charity’s ability to help our beneficiaries and ensure our good work lives on.
