Philanthropy at Crisis

Crisis’ work is funded almost entirely by individuals, and we rely on this support to deliver our vital services and campaign independently.

As a philanthropist, you can donate to specific areas of our work and support ambitious and exciting projects that help people out of homelessness for good.

If you share the belief that homelessness should be ended, and would like to fund ground-breaking developments and major innovations to make this a reality, then we would love to hear from you.

How you can help 

We can match your interests with similar projects across Crisis. In return for your support, we bring our work alive and ensure that you see the full impact of your philanthropy. 

As a Crisis philanthropist, you will receive the following to thank you for your giving:

  • the option to donate to a specific area of Crisis’ work*
  • invitations to a range of special events
  • the chance to learn more about homelessness from leading experts in the sector
  • visits to projects to see the impact of your donations first-hand
  • opportunities to meet members with lived experience of homelessness
  • one-to-one meetings with our senior team and project leaders
  • networking with other philanthropists
  • detailed reports about the impact of your major gifts
  • rewarding and diverse volunteering opportunities
  • a personal relationship manager in the philanthropy team, to answer any of your questions.

* When giving over £10,000

"Spending Christmas with Crisis was great. It takes the strain off. You eat well, you have fun, you smile, and people connect with each other. For me, Christmas meant finding my footing and making plans for the new year. But when I was there, I realised that the Christmas centres are just the first step. When you come back in the new year, you have people from housing, employment, training – everything." Hephzibah

Your gift will help someone go to one of Crisis’ Christmas centres and find a route out of homelessness, just like Hephzibah did.

Your major gift will help us end homelessness for good. Read our privacy policy.
