Don’t do nothing, do something. We can all make a difference no matter what we give. We are fortunate enough to have amazing supporters, volunteers and donors all across the world.
Day in and day out, these people make a real, tangible and lifesaving difference to the lives of families in disaster zones who have lost everything. Everyone has something to give and there are many ways you can help support ShelterBox.
Ways of Giving
Financial donations are the lifeblood of any charity and there are many other ways you can get involved with our work. Volunteering your time or applying to become an SRT member is a fantastic and hands-on way to support our work. We also have a range of ways people can make donations to us, from our legacies and grants programmes to monthly giving. You can sponsor a ShelterBox and find out where in the world it has gone or you can donate to the ShelterBox Disaster Fund to help us prepare for when the next big disaster strikes. Every donation, be it of time or money, will make the difference to a family’s life.
Our Commitment to You
We are acutely aware that the work we do would not be possible without the many thousands of donors who so generously support ShelterBox. As a member of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) we have made a public promise to adhere to best practice, honesty, transparency, clarity and accountability in all fundraising activities, enabling you to give with confidence.
We are a lean organisation that benefits from the tireless efforts of a strong and extensive support base of volunteers. This is key in enabling to keep our overheads as low as possible, sometimes it is the same volunteers who pack the boxes that deliver them in the field. We make every donation count and ensure it helps make the difference when disaster strikes.
The Power of Generosity
Corporate partners make a crucial contribution to our work. From the UK’s Met Office to our tent manufacturers Vango we receive invaluable support from a range of businesses. This support supplements our mission and provides a tangible difference in disaster zones around the world. There are many ways companies can support our work and every donation makes a lasting difference. The generosity of businesses who support us holds the power to save people’s lives.
Grants from trusts and foundations make a huge difference to our capacity to reach disaster survivors worldwide and also support our training and education work. We are extremely grateful to all the trusts and foundations whose support helps us to respond instantly to disasters around the world. From small local family trusts to large national foundations, every grant makes a difference. Grants from trusts help us to prepare for the next disaster, to train volunteer SRTs and provide them with equipment, teach young people about disasters, expand our work with Scouts and support other essential aspects of our work.
