Making a major gift

How your major gift will make a difference

Your generous support as a major donor plays a vital role in ensuring that everybody has a place to call home.

Our dedicated team works to match your specific philanthropic interests with projects that have the greatest impact for families who are faced with losing their homes.

By working together, we can achieve transformational change for the lives of individuals who come to us for support, as well as campaigning to effect change at policy level.
