At Barnardo’s, we form long-lasting relationships with our key supporters. This allows us to really understand the issues you care most about. We work closely with you to provide the best possible support for children and families going through some of the toughest times in their lives.
One of our experienced relationship managers will visit you, get to know more about your charitable interests and suggest projects or areas we think are a good fit.
Each individual or family we work with is unique, and we will tailor our communications in line with your wishes.
Some of the benefits we offer our donors include:
- opportunities to visit our services and see the impact of your gift
- invitations to interesting and varied events where you can learn more about our life-changing work and meet like-minded supporters
- the opportunity to attend strategic briefings from our senior leadership team
- regular reports and updates that give you a closer look at our work and the issues affecting vulnerable children
Our most committed and passionate supporters are welcomed to become members of the Barnardo’s Philanthropy Network; a growing group of like-minded philanthropists who enable us to create tangible, lasting change for children.
The Barnardo's Philanthropy Network recognises this support at one of five levels: Friend, Benefactor, Pioneer, Patron and Platinum Patron – all of which represent a truly incredible commitment to changing children’s lives.
