Standing in the gap together

If you are considering pledging a significant gift to Tearfund, we want to help explore the best option for you.
 
You can find more information about giving a gift as an individual, trust or foundation, or through sales of shares on this page. Always feel free to contact us directly on 020 3906 3500 or at partnerships@tearfund.org.
 
God's love compels us to go to the people hardest to reach, irrespective of their faith, and to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. God doesn’t abandon anyone, and neither will we. We’re in this for the long haul and we’re looking for people who will go the distance with us. Together, we can help people progress from disaster and despair to hope and self-sufficiency. We would love to speak to you about how you can get involved.

Individual donors

Turn your passion into provision

 
‘...let us not love in speech but with actions and in truth’ (1 John 3:18).
 
It’s not enough to be passionate, it’s not enough simply to care. We must be people of action.
 
Our aim is to ensure that your heart for justice becomes a catalyst for real change; that your passion leads to transformation for those living in poverty.
 
We want to give you the opportunity to journey alongside communities, praying with them, encouraging them and seeing for yourself the difference your support can make.

Investing in transformation

 
We’ll keep you updated on the work you’re investing in, meet with you in person and invite you to inspiring events. There’s also the option of going on one of our vision trips, so you can see first-hand the fruits of your generosity. How much you engage with us is entirely up to you.
 
We invite you to invest in one of many varied projects in countries across the world – all of which are impacting lives in amazing ways.
  

Trusts and foundations

A partnership you can trust

 
There is great strength in unity. We are all part of God’s church; members of a body that is called to bring good news to the poor. Trusts and foundations are a vital part of Tearfund’s work – standing together we can do so much more to bring God’s love to those oppressed by poverty.

Building foundations of hope

 
Tearfund has a uniquely Christ-centred, church and community-led approach. We equip local churches to be salt and light, and empower people to lift themselves out of poverty and enjoy whole-life transformation. We want to work in partnership with you to bring this about.
 
Together, we can respond quickly and effectively to disasters, develop communities to unlock their potential, mobilise the local church to bring about whole life transformation in their communities, and change the unjust policies that keep people locked in poverty.

Enabling transformation together

 
We want to enable you to give to a situation that is on your heart. We have the expertise, skills and experience to implement a wide variety of transformative projects – from equipping churches to transform their communities to providing safe water and sanitation and helping prevent child trafficking. We will ensure that your support goes towards a cause that matters to you and fulfils your objectives.
 
Measurement and impact are a fundamental part of everything we do, and our team will keep you informed every step of the way. We are equipped to provide detailed reports on the progress being made, ensuring that you meet your charitable aims. You can be assured that you will see holistic, sustainable and measurable change.

Gifts of shares 

If you have shares to sell, it is most cost effective for us if you sell your shares through your own stockbroker and donate the proceeds of the sale to Tearfund. We can provide any letters you need from Tearfund as part of the process. Please call 020 3906 3906 or email giving@tearfund.org.
 
If you prefer, you can consider using ShareGift, particularly for small shareholdings. You can request that ShareGift donate the value of the shares to Tearfund but we will not know that the gift has come from you. If you want us to know that you have made a gift in this way, please call 020 3906 3906 or email giving@tearfund.org.

Bank details

Payments to Tearfund's bank accounts can be made to the following accounts, depending on the currency. Please use "1258" as your reference. Get in touch to let us know it's on its way.
