Ways to donate

You are here

By making a donation today you will be supporting us in our work to help the 64,000 children in foster care across the UK to fulfil their potential and achieve their ambitions. We work with fostered children and young people, foster carers and the other professionals who support fostered children to ensure that every child in care has the best possible experience of foster care, and that all fostered children have every opportunity to enjoy the very best life chances and to reach their full potential.

Thank you.

Other ways to donate


A wedding, a birthday or a special anniversary are fantastic occasions on which to share your passion for supporting children in foster care with your friends, family and guests.  Why not add a little something extra special to the day by asking friends and family to make a donation to support the work of The Fostering Network instead of a gift? 

Our fundraising team can provide you with fundraising materials to help celebrate your special event, such as donation forms, thank you letters and collection boxes but if there is anything else that you would like to discuss, please give us a call, we are always impressed by the creativity of our supporters and will do all we can to get behind your fundraising efforts!

Shop online

Easyfundraising is a great online tool, which allows you to make a free donation to The Fostering Network every time you buy something online. There are nearly 3,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, and Sainsbury's, who will donate a percentage of the amount you spend to The Fostering Network to say thank you for shopping with them.

It's really simple, and doesn't cost you anything. There are no hidden charges or catches.

All you have to do is:

  1. Go to Easyfundraising.
  2. Sign up for free.
  3. Get shopping . Your donations will be collected by Easyfundraising and automatically sent to The Fostering Network. It couldn't be easier!

Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is an easy way to make your support go further and improve life for children in foster care now and into the future. You chose how much you want to give each month. The donation is taken from your pay, before tax, so it will actually cost you less. For example:

  • if you pay the basic rate tax, a £5 donation to The Fostering Network will cost you only £4
  • If you are a higher rate tax payer, a £10 donation will cost you only £6.

It’s a great way to give, and easy to opt in and out whenever you wish.

What to do next:

Speak to your employer today and ask your payroll department about setting up a donation to The Fostering Network (quoting our registered charity number - 280852).  If your employer doesn't have a scheme, let us know and we can help them to set one up!
