Giving for Thurrock

Giving for Thurrock – GiFT – is a local fund that has supported organisations, community groups, sports clubs, dance troupes, gardening initiatives among many other good causes through donations generously supplied by residents and businesses in this borough.

We are now helping many individuals who are facing extremely difficult times during the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re helping our neighbours in a real time of need – but to continue to do so, we need everybody’s help. 

There are plenty of ways you can help 

Direct Donations

We will graciously accept any donation, no matter how big or small. Fact is, £5 could feed a family in need up the road from you.

give as you live

Give as you live is a free initiative where retailers donate a portion of your online spend to a designated charity. Pick Giving For Thurrock and donate to us without it costing you a single penny.

Text a donation direct to us by texting Thurrock 5 to 70085 and donate £5 through your next phone bill. If you pay for your texts, your operator may charge their usual fee.

payroll giving

If you’re still lucky enough to be working, you can ask your employers to contact us to set up payroll giving. This is where you commit a fixed amount from your gross pay which is given to a charity of your choice (pick us!). We get to claim the tax back on your behalf, so each pound you donate is more for us by the time we receive it. 

See, it’s simple. We can’t wait for you to get involved. And Please share with us your selfies when you’ve donated! You never know, it could help encourage another person to do the same.
