Make a donation

Your gifts change lives. Please donate today.

Make a donation to help lift millions of vulnerable families out of poverty across the world and here in the UK.

One in five people across the world live in slums and substandard housing. Many are trapped in an exhausting cycle of poverty, with no clean water or sanitation and no place to call ‘home’.

Your donation helps us to reach out to them and build a brighter future. You will find here the best ways to make a donation, whether it’s giving online, by phone, as a gift or while you shop online.

Why make a donation

Our vision is a world where everyone has a safe place to call home. We believe that safe, decent homes help to permanently break the cycle of poverty and allow families to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance. Since 1976, we have been expanding our operations from the US to over 70 countries around the world, including the UK. And we are building faster than ever.

Where your money goes

For every £1 you give, we spend:

  • 90p on fighting extreme poverty housing (via building and repairing homes, providing clean water, responding to disasters, etc)
