We can’t predict the future, but we can be ready for it. Help us to prepare for disasters with a regular gift.
We don’t know where or when the next disaster will strike, but we do know that lives could depend on us when it does. The most vulnerable families and communities need help to arrive as quickly as possible.
Regular gifts give us the confidence to prepare for the future so we are always ready to respond. A gift of $10 a month – that’s just 33 cents a day - which will help to ensure that vital aid reaches disaster zones in days, not weeks.
How your regular gift will help
Regular gifts support the ShelterBox Disaster Fund, which is key to our disaster preparedness and rapid response. It helps us to:
• invest in equipment and pre-position aid in strategic locations worldwide
• recruit and train our global network of ShelterBox Response Team volunteers
• increase our capacity to store and deliver ShelterBox aid
• continue to develop our specialist equipment and deliver the best possible aid package
The benefits of regular gifts
Giving in this way is more cost-effective as it keeps our administrative costs to a minimum, meaning even more of your gift goes directly on our work.
You’ll find it is easier too - a small regular amount will automatically leave your bank account so you’ll be helping without even having to think about it. And if your circumstances change, you can change or stop your gifts at any time, just let us know.
Sue from Helston, Cornwall, has been a committed ShelterBox supporter for more than six years. In 2011 she started making a regular gift of $40 a month:
‘Giving to ShelterBox on a regular basis makes it so much easier for me - I don't have to look around for a place to donate - and I’m sure I would forget otherwise. This way I know that the money I am able to give will allow ShelterBox to plan ahead and be proactive, not just reactive’.
