Make a donation

Here at St Clare, our goal is to ensure that all local people have access to the care and support they need and deserve, during one of life’s most difficult journeys. With thanks to your support and charitable donations, this is possible.

We want to make life better for people living with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones, across West Essex and East Hertfordshire. But we can only continue providing our skilled and compassionate care to those who need us with your support 

Your donation means we can continue making a difference to the lives of those we care for now and in the years to come.

Making a donation today, no matter how big or small, helps to give St Clare Hospice the income we need to fund our services. From paying our staff who provide specialist, compassionate care to those who need us; to buying medical supplies, equipment and running our hospice facilities – hospice care may be free, but it is not cheap. And with limited NHS funding, voluntary income plays a vital role in making our work possible.

Every donation we receive goes towards the provision of our health and social care services for local people who need support when facing a life-limiting illness, the end of life and bereavement.

Donate monthly and be a Friend for Life

Give every month so we can be here every day. Being a Friend for Life and supporting the work of St Clare with a regular gift, will help us continue to offer our round-the-clock care to people in your local community. Your gift will help us make plans for the future and continue to grow and reach even more people that desperately need our help, with confidence.

By donating a regular gift of as little as £4 a month you can help us care for people like Tony, and his family. Tony wanted wanted to share his story with you today to show what a difference St Clare’s care makes to local families.

Where does your money go?

It costs £4.6million to run St Clare Hospice. For every £1 you donate, 86p goes directly on directly on care and support services. The remaining 14p goes on administration and generating more funds and income. (2019-20 figures)

You can read more about the difference that your donation makes in our Impact Report 2020. Please click here to read our Impact Report 2020.

Pssst… Have you signed up for Gift Aid?

Whilst you’re here, have you signed up for Gift Aid? If you’re a UK taxpaying citizen, signing up to Gift Aid can help us to claim a further 25% of your donation at no extra cost to you. This works by allowing us to reclaim the basic tax you pay on your donation to us from the government, so that we can put it towards funding our charity and hospice services.

So, for every £10 you donate, we can claim an extra £2.50.

Please do take the time to sign up to Gift Aid. It really does make a difference!
