We rely on the kindness of the people, organisations and businesses of West Devon to be able to provide our services.
The work of the trust is carried out entirely voluntarily by its trustees so, other than some very small fixed costs, all of the money donated, raised or bequeathed goes directly to helping children and their families.
When you help us, you’ll be in good company …!
The easiest way to help us to continue to make such a big difference to the lives of children in West Devon is to donate.
We are always immensely grateful for all donations, one-off or regular, of any size.
Watch this space for our new online donations facility. In the meantime, to make a donation, please contact us.
If you would like to make a donation direct to us, or to discuss opportunities for business donations or sponsorship, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
The majority of our funding comes from the generously-given time and effort of local people, organisations and businesses.
If you’ve got a great idea for a fundraising event or activity, please let us know.
We are always happy to help with promotion, to join you where we can – and we always say thank you!
Leave a Legacy
Many people kindly choose to include a donation to The Mary Budding Trust in their will.
Legacies have been hugely important in helping the trust to support children in West Devon over the last 20 years. These generous gifts have all made a big impact.
To make a will or an amendment to an existing will is straightforward and less expensive than you might think – and leaving a legacy to a registered charity carries with it significant tax benefits.
We have answers to some of the main questions that you might have here.
Whatever you choose to do, we strongly recommend always using a professional legal advisor such as a solicitor when drawing up such an important document.
