Cruse Bereavement Care offers services that almost everyone may need at some point in their life and we often find clients who have received help from our volunteers want to say 'thank you' in a positive way. We do have annual running costs which have to be met and every penny helps us to remain operational and to continue to provide this valuable service free-of-charge.
Surrey North Area Cruse is funded entirely from donations and grants. Without the generosity of our clients, sponsors and fundraisers we would not be able to support those affected by bereavement.
There are a number of other ways in which people choose to help us with their donations:
If you wish to make an online donation of any kind, please visit our MyDonate page. This service is provided by BT as part of thier corporate responsiibility program and, unlike some other services available, every penny you donate to us comes to us as we are not charged any fees.
Do you shop online? Do it through Easyfundraising and raise a free donation for Cruse every time you shop! Here's a video to show you how it's done. It's even easier if you download this toolbar reminder which will remind you when you're shopping from a retailer who supports the scheme and you can add your free donation with a simple click of a button.
Please remember to select Cruse Bereavement Care (Surrey North Area) as your cause.
When you write your will you are making sure your family and friends will be looked after when you are gone. A legacy donation can be a tremendously positive and empowering way for people to fulfill their philanthropic dreams by leaving a legacy.
By including a legacy to Cruse you can ensure those you leave behind and furture generations can continue to rely on Cruse Bereavement Care.
Gifts left to charities are exempt from tax and very generous gifts can help reduce inheritance tax. Read more here.
If you are an Amazon customer, we have an Amazon Wishlist where you can donate items to us which are then charged to your Amazon account.
