What We Do For Parents

Tree of Hope is a crowdfunding charity that helps children and young people with a disability or illness by providing their families with support in raising the funds they need for specialist care. The UK healthcare system does not provide many of the treatments required for chronically or terminally ill children. That’s why Tree Of Hope supports families in raising these much-needed funds. Call our Family Support team today on 01892 535525 to discuss what we can do to help your child get the support they need.

Fundraising with Tree of Hope

Children with complex healthcare needs can often benefit from a range of therapies and treatments, not necessarily available via state provision. Tree of Hope supports families to fundraise towards these costs, safe in the knowledge they are working with a registered charity to maximise their fundraising opportunities and get support and help from us at every step of the way. Donors to your cause will be reassured in the fact that they are donating to a registered charity, so their money will be used for the true cause –  to benefit your child.

It is not possible for a charity to be established to support an individual child. However, Tree of Hope is the umbrella charity which has supported thousands of individual children’s campaigns for 30 years. You can donate directly to Tree of Hope to help us continue improving the lives of children in the future.

How We Support Families

We enable parents to fundraise under the banner of a registered charity, with their very own campaign dedicated to their child. Each donation is subject to a 7.5% contribution which goes towards the core running costs of the charity. We have kept this at its absolute minimum so your child benefits as much as possible from donations. The majority of families find that the addition of Gift Aid covers fees and still adds extra to your campaign. Crowdfunding as an individual will NOT enable you to claim gift aid and cover fees in this way or provide reassurance to donors that their money will be used for the purpose it was originally donated for.

Fundraising with our registered charity Tree of Hope enables you to:

  • Claim Gift Aid on donations made by UK taxpayers (adding 25% to the value of the donation)
  • Receive corporate donations
  • Have donations increased with match funding
  • Reassure donors their money is safe and will be used to benefit your child
  • Access potential grants from trusts and foundations
  • Set up a fundraising site via a registered charity to send out virally to your supporters

Tree of Hope also supports families by:

  • Making fundraising tools and advice available to them.
  • Managing funds and paying invoices for operations, therapists and equipment to ensure donors know for sure that the money is going where it is supposed to go
  • As a nationally-known charity, we are able to give greater exposure to campaigns by featuring you on our website and via our social media activity.

Please note that crowdfunding as an individual family for your child will NOT give you any of these benefits.
