Donations from people and businesses is one of the most gratifying ways to receive income because it comes after careful consideration, with a meaningful purpose and often after a direct personal experience with Flower Pod.
Donations can be made in various forms, such as:
- one off payment (for specific or general use)
- regular monthly payments by direct debit, standing order or cheque
- legacy agreements
- in kind, such as by the supply of goods and services to support Flower Pod activities
If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your gift can be increased by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost to you. This means a donation of £25.00 could be worth an extra £6.25 to us, and it doesn’t cost you a penny!
Thank You to everyone who has donated to Flower Pod over the years – we would not be here without your help!
Flower Pod is financed through a combination of revenue generated by our parent charity, Reach Learning Disability, our own commercial and fund raising activities, external funding from a range of providers and the generosity of philanthropic individuals and businesses.
Being a Social Enterprise means that Flower Pod has a commitment to reduce the dependency on external funding and to grow our income from commercial activities, such as those detailed in the Flower Pod Shop.
We will continue to need funding from external providers whilst we develop our independence, so please contact us if you have any interest in exploring this further.
