Thank you for supporting The Benjamin Foundation. All the ways you can donate are below. We are also able to claim Gift Aid on eligible donations, which means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give at no extra cost to you. You simply need to complete and return our Gift Aid form (above).

Donate via BACS: To make a donation by bank transfer, please call our Head Office on 01603 615670 (option 3) for our details.

Donate online: We use Virgin Money Giving to enable supporters to make a one-off or regular donations online. Your donation will come directly to us. Please click here for our Virgin Money Giving page.

Donate cash or a cheque: You can drop in cash or post cheques to our Head Office, 23-27 St Andrews Street, Norwich, NR2 4TP. Our reception is open Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm.

Donate by Text Message: Text BENJAMIN followed by the amount you wish to donate (up to £20) to 70450 . Texts cost the amount you’ve donated plus one standard rate message. For example: To donate £5 text BENJAMIN 5 to 70450. Don’t forget to complete the follow up Gift Aid prompt too to enable us to claim an additional 25% at no extra cost to you.

Donate to celebrate: Are you celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion? The Benjamin Foundation ‘Donate to Celebrate’ offers an alternative way to give by providing your friends and family with the option to donate to our charity instead of purchasing a physical gift. By inviting your friends and family to donate to celebrate, you will be helping to empower local young people to become independent, resilient members of community. Donate to celebrate via our trusted friends at GivePenny here.

  • How your donation helps local people


    £20 could pay for a young person in our Housing and Homelessness service to receive one hour of dedicated support from a Support Worker.

    £120 can pay for a young person’s basic necessities such as food and bills for one month.

    £180 could pay for 6 sessions of emotional wellbeing support for a young person. We delivered 10,184 sessions of emotional wellbeing support to children in local schools in the 2018/19 academic year.

    £500 can pay for a residential trip for a group of young carers to give them the chance to escape their day-to-day pressures and be a child again.


Your donation will help more local young people like Charlotte
