Make a donation

If you’re not able to organise or take part in an event, making a donation is a really simple and effective way to support us. Any gift, no matter how large or small, will play an important part in helping us support children and adults who have been adopted. It’s quick and easy to donate and you can do so online, by text, bank transfer or post. 

There are several ways that you can donate: 

Making a one-off donation: You can make a one-off donation or set up a monthly donation to Diagrama Foundation online via our Just Giving Page using all major debit and credit cards or Paypal. If you are a UK taxpayer (and you pay more in tax than you are donating) we will automatically receive a further 25p in Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.

Setting up a regular donation through direct debit: Set up a direct debit with JustGiving

Text to donate: Simply text DIAG09 £ (amount you wish to donate) to 70070. For example, if you wish to give £5 then text DIAG09 £5 to 70071. You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10. You’ll receive an acknowledgement via text and will be asked if you wish to Gift Aid your donation. This helps to increase the amount we receive at no extra cost to you. The amount you choose to donate will then be added onto your mobile phone bill or taken from your credits if you pay as you go. All the money you donate goes to Diagrama Foundation.

Payroll giving: Payroll giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. Payroll giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p. Payroll giving (also known as Give As You Earn or workplace giving) is a valuable, long term source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay. It’s cheaper because its tax free - for example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer £4.00 (the taxman pays the rest!) Ask your employer if they have a scheme already in place, otherwise more information about setting one up can be found here.
