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

“I support Crisis because everyone has the right to a safe, stable place to live and I want to stand with Crisis to make that happen.”


damienDamien has been a supporter since 2006. In 2017, he became a trustee of Crisis and he currently chairs the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee.

He is a financial analyst by training and has spent the past few years on the board of two high-growth software businesses. He is Vice-Chair at MSF-UK, the humanitarian medical aid organisation, and Honorary Treasurer at Pro Bono Economics.

As a supporter and a trustee, Damien has introduced a number of people to Crisis via events or individual meetings. These introductions help raise the profile of Crisis and increase support to fight against homelessness. Before becoming a trustee, Damien was a “critical friend” to the management team, providing feedback and guidance on projects.
