There are many ways YOU can help raise the vital funds we need for RSPCA Suffolk East and Ipswich Branch, every penny counts!
The RSPCA receives no funding from the government, all the running costs of the branch come from donations, fundraising and legacies.
Around 60 per cent of all the money the RSPCA receives is left by generous supporters in their wills. A legacy ensures the life-saving work of the RSPCA can continue. Put simply, without legacies this Branch would cease to operate and local animals in Suffolk would suffer. If you would like more information, please contact the Centre on 0300 999 7321 or send an e-mail with your name and address so we can post you some information.
You can sponsor a Dog Kennel, Cat Pen, Rabbit Pen, Ferret Pen or Critters’ Corner (our small furry and feathered friends) which provide a safe environment for abused, abandoned, mistreated and unwanted animals. With Safe Haven you won’t be helping just one animal, you’ll be sponsoring the lives of all who pass through our animal centre every year. More info here
Payroll giving is one of the most tax effective methods of regular giving and its simple to administer for employers. In this way, you can support us with a regular, tax-free donation straight from your pay.
EBAY FOR CHARITY
Another way in which you can help us raise funds for our branch is by giving a % of your Ebay sales
Easy Fundraising! How about supporting the Branch every time you shop online by signing up at http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/rspcasuffolkeastipswich/ Rest assured, it doesnt cost a penny extra to shop this way and you may even get yourself a few discounts.
The way you can donate to us when you shop with Amazon changed. If you search for Amazon on www.easyfundraising.org.uk or the easyfundraising App, you will be directed to AmazonSmile. You can still raise FREE donations for RSPCA Suffolk East & Ipswich Branch when you buy things from Amazon – you’ll just need to create a free account at smile.amazon.co.uk.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products as their main site. But if you shop on smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) to us – the charity of your choice.
Easy Fundraising is still around, just not for Amazon purchases.
BEAUTY WITHOUT CRUELTY
Sell cruelty free cosmetics. Their website is www.bwcshop.com. If you enter our special code “RSPCASUFF” at their checkout when making any purchase, they will donate 10% of that sale directly to our Branch, This is not ‘10% of profits’ it’s a straight 10% of the value of the order excluding VAT!
Having a clear out or decluttering? We would love to receive ladies’, gents’ and children’s clothes, toys, small (working) electrical items, accessories (e.g. shoes, handbags and jewellery), books, CDs & DVDs, bric-a-brac and household linen. Unfortunately, we can’t accept videos, duvets or pillows. We can sell clothing in less than good condition to textile recyclers, including shoes and handbags. Please take your donations to any of our shops or the Animal Centre.
Stamps – Can we have all your used stamps off of letters, etc? We can sell used stamps to a company who will give us £3 per kilo. That’s a lot of stamps, but every little helps. Please take or send to one of our sites.
Broken Jewellery – The odd broken chain or mismatched earring can net us some much needed cash. We can get money for local animals from your broken jewellery, costume jewellery, old beads and broken watches. Simply take or send the items to one of our sites.
If your company would like to support our charity, we would love to hear from you. From general support for our animal welfare work to donations to specific projects, we are happy to accept cash donations or gifts in kind. Of course, we would acknowledge your generosity on site and online. We have corporate sponsorship schemes and can offer volunteering opportunities across our Branch.
