Although the DEC relies mainly on donations from the members of the public, support from companies is also extremely welcome. Fundraising at work can be fun for staff and provide excellent team building opportunities for employers. Large corporate gifts can generate significant public relations benefits.
Every penny counts, so please take advantage of the gift aid scheme for payroll and match giving to ensure any staff donations are tax-efficient.
Once you or your staff have raised funds please pay them in by cheque or direct bank transfer.
Please print and complete our form and send it with your cheques made payable to DEC Appeal to:
DEC Syria Crisis Appeal
PO Box 999
and remember to tell us if you need a receipt.
Direct bank transfer
We have a dedicated account for bankd transfers. For more information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We’ve lots of ideas for and downloadable toolkits to help you.
You can match the money your employees give to the DEC.
A 100 per cent match would equal each employee's gift pound-for-pound.
It can be capped by setting a limit for each employee.
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme enabling employees to make tax-free charitable donations.
By setting up a gift through your payroll, your employees can make charitable donations straight from their salary.
