Philanthropy

Work with St Mungo's to end homelessness and rebuild lives, for good

Without the support of generous philanthropists our work would not be possible. Making a major gift to St Mungo's ensures that, together, we can help people to permanently leave the streets. We work with philanthropists who give during their lifetime or through legacies, and those who give directly or choose to structure their giving through trusts, foundations, or other mechanisms.

Working as philanthropic advisors, we see every day the impact that strategic giving can have for people who need a chance to rebuild their lives, and we look forward to discussing this with you soon.

If you would like to be part of this, please get in touch with Helen Haytham (Trusts and Foundations) and Kasthur Narayanswami (Major Donors) on 020 3856 6070 or philanthropy@mungos.org.

You are rebuilding lives

We are grateful to work in partnership with several visionary philanthropists and charitable funders. These include the Big Lottery Fund, whose support enables us to run a number of projects and services for people experiencing homelessness.

Our commitment to you

With a gift of £5,000 or above, one of St Mungo’s dedicated philanthropy advisors will work with you and your family to help you make a meaningful impact in the lives of people affected by homelessness, and in the areas of our work that are most important to you.

 Our philanthropy team will provide you with:

- Support and guidance from a dedicated philanthropy advisor
- Regular updates on our work, so you can see the impact of your gift
- Opportunities to visit the projects you support
- Invitations to exclusive events throughout the year

The Champions of St Mungo's

Our champions are at the forefront of our work. They collaborate with us to end homelessness and rebuild lives by making a three-year commitment to fund our  highest priority projects. With their support and dedication, we are able to plan for the future, respond to fast emerging needs, and ensure that no one has to face homelessness again.

To learn more about how you can become a Champion, please find our brochure below or contact Kasthur Narayanswami in the Major Donor team.

Giving to St Mungo's and what it means to you

Make an even bigger impact on our mission to end homelessness by making your gift tax efficient.

If you are giving personally, and you are a UK taxpayer, you can declare that your contribution should be treated as a Gift Aid donation. Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows charities to reclaim the tax that has already been paid on donations made by a UK taxpayer. This means your donation will be worth an extra 25%, at no extra cost to you.

Through the Gift Aid scheme you can help many people rebuild their lives, and be rewarded at the same time.

The information below indicates how both you and St Mungo's can benefit from Gift Aid.

If you are an Additional Rate tax payer (45%), the amount you can claim back can be even greater, but the impact can vary based on individual circumstance. Your tax advisor will be able to advise on what this might mean for you.

For more information about how you can maximise your gift, please see our Gift Aid page.
