If you have small shareholdings you wish to dispose of, Sharegift will help you do so in a charitable and tax-efficient way.
Payroll giving is a tax efficient scheme that allows you to donate to the DEC straight from your salary.
Because your donation is taken out before tax a £10 donation will cost you £8. Please visit CAF for advice on how to arrange this.
To avoid slow and costly shipping, our member agencies source the goods and materials they need to help survivors in bulk and as close to the disaster zone as possible.
Therefore the DEC is unable to accept donated goods such as clothes or household materials.
