“giving is not just about making a donation.

it is about making a difference.”

Kathy calvin
ceo of the united nations

We never charge for the support and services we provide to local communities and it's largely the generosity of people like you which makes that possible.

Every donation really does help us make a difference and if you are a UK tax payer, please take the time to GIFT AID to boost your donation by an extra 25%.  Thank you.

There are many different ways to give, and we aim to be transparent about any processing fees to help maximise your gift to us. Whichever way you choose, it will be valuable income for us.

Find out about the different ways to give below:

Easy Fundraising

or while selling

When you sell on Ebay you can choose to donate any or all of your profits direct to Hope Nottingham.

give food

We could not provide the level of emergency food support we do without your support.

You can donate non-perishable food at any of our foodbanks, please check here for opening times and locations.


We are currently most in need of shampoo and shower gel, tinned meat, tinned potatoes and tinned puddings (rice pudding, custard, sponge) as well as sweet treats such as biscuits. 

give in memory

Losing someone you love is devastating and celebrating their life can be a comfort.  Many people choose to donate to a local charity in lieu of flowers as a way to do this whilst making a difference to others. 


Setting up a Just Giving Page in  memory enables friends and families to leave tributes and share stories.

Donations in memory of a loved one  have extra meaning and we’re always very grateful to receive them.

give in celebration

Whether it's a birthday, wedding, christening, anniversary or any other occasion, you can use your celebration to help make a difference by supporting the work of Hope Nottingham. 


By asking friends and family to make a donation to Hope Nottingham instead of buying gifts, you’ll be making a difference to the lives of local people. Set up a Just Giving Page here which will also allow your friends and family to gift aid.

leave a gift in your will

As a Hope supporter, you may wish to leave a legacy to us as

part of your will.

 A professionally written will and keeping it up to date, is the only way to ensure your wishes will be carried out. Should you decide to include a gift to us you will simply need to include our name, charity number and address.


Rest assured we would always protect your privacy and handle your wishes with care.
