Grants and Donations
CARIS Islington services are supported by grants and donations from individuals, trusts, and churches. However, the reality is that we never have quite enough money. Since Covid 19 donations have decreased and even more so since the cold weather shelter is closed for this season due to Covid restrictions If you would like to donate please email [email protected] giving us the details and if possible please use BACS or donate via easy fundraising or just giving.

How you can help
Caris is registered with various online websites including some for fundraising. Please explore these and ask your friends and relatives to do so too. For example, we are registered with ‘Just Giving’ which facilitates charity donations when people undertake sponsored events including marathons and expeditions. ‘easyfundraising’ allows us to benefit when supporters do online shopping: you need first to register with easyfundraising and then search for ‘Caris Islington’ as the organisation you wish to support. 100s of retailers and companies, eg John Lewis, Mothercare, Direct Line insurers, Amazon …. are on their books and will give us a few % of the purchase price. Why not use easyfundraising for your Christmas shopping? Then we are registered with our Localgiving page which has a fundraising campaign on at the moment which ‘matches’donations of £10. Visit our our Localgiving page - click the "Make a donation" box in the top right of the page and you can make a double contribution of much needed funds. Do this soon as this ‘match funding’ is only while this pot of money lasts!

Use the easy fundraising search engine when you are surfing on the internet and you will raise funds for us. We don't get much for each 'search' but all those pennies add up and you don't have to do anything except choose us as your chosen charity the first time you use the easyfundraising search engine. Click here to go to the easyfundraising website. Scroll to the bottom of the page and under 'raise funds' click on easysearch. You can also do the same with amazon smile.

Winter fuel Allowance
Is there anyone receiving this allowance to help pay their heating bills who feels they really don’t need it and could instead donate some or all of it to Caris? The winter fuel payment is between £100 and £300 depending on your situation.
A lot of people don't make wills but if you are planning to make one, please remember us, so that your generosity can continue, even after your death.
If you are in employment, and your organisation supports charities, or has a corporate giving programme, why not ask them to support Caris?
