Donations & Fundraising

We rely on your donations to fulfil our aim of supporting deaf people in Cumbria. You can choose to donate to a specific initiative or to the organisation as a whole. You can be assured that every penny you give will be used to provide services to our deaf and deafblind clients.

Donate Directly

You can make a donation directly to CDA by calling 01228 210205 or sending it directly to our Carlisle office listed on our contact page.

Gift Aid

Don’t forget to let us know if you are a UK tax payer. UK charities are entitled to 25% tax reclaim from the HMRC on every £1 donated by UK taxpayers. If you are a UK taxpayer we can reclaim from HMRC basic-rate tax on any gift you make. This increases the value of your gift. For example, if you give £10 in this tax year using Gift Aid, it is worth £12.50 to us.

Legacies

You have probably given a lot of thought to making your will, but have you thought of leaving something to CDA? Many people now use their wills to leave a gift to their favourite charity like CDA. Such gifts are free from inheritance tax and can reduce your family’s overall tax liability. We can even help by arranging a free will writing service for you.

Fundraising

You can also get involved by holding a fundraising event in your area. This is a great way to bring friends, family and the community together and raise money for a good cause. Not sure where to begin? Get in touch with us and we can supply the necessary support.
