We rely on financial donations from generous individuals and organisations so that we can carry on making a difference to women's lives.
Dress for Success does not receive any government funding. We rely entirely on donations and grants to fund our work. We pride ourselves in being a low-cost, efficient organisation with a small staff team to ensure that every penny we receive delivers real value to our funders and real worth to our clients.
How your money will help:
A £10 donation will buy a scarf or other accessories to help one woman look and feel confident for her job interview.
A £25 donation will buy a much-needed pair of shoes or handbag.
A £50 donation will pay for vital interview training for one client.
A £75 donation will pay for a fabulous outfit for one woman to wear to her job interview.
A £200 donation will pay for a complete interview outfit, interview training and on-going career support for one client.
If you would like to help, you can contribute in a number of different ways:
Payroll giving - Give as You Earn (GAYE)
Regularly donating a fixed sum of money from your salary is a simple way to give. It's also the most tax effective, because donations are deducted before you pay tax.
For example, if you donate £10, only £8 comes out of your salary and the tax office pays the rest. Or if you are on a higher tax rate (50%), only £5 comes out of your salary and the tax office pays the other £5. For higher rate tax payers it is the only way to pass on your 40% or 50% tax to charities. Only 25% can be recouped via other ways of giving.
Please contact your payroll office and ask if your company runs a Give As You Earn (GAYE) scheme and tell them that you would like to donate to Dress for Success London.
Quotes from Dress for Success GAYE donors:
“I love giving to Dress for Success through payroll giving because I pay no income tax on what I give and I am giving away money I would never have received.”
"I am so pleased to be able to support Dress For Success on a small but regular basis through Give As You Earn. It's a great way to give, so easy to set up and hassle-free. Even better, some employers have a policy of matched-giving too."
