Donations

We are reliant on donations from individuals, several Colleges, the Religious Society of  Friends (Quakers), and some charities, especially Cambridge United Charities and the Cambridgeshire Community Fund, who donate to us because they know we are speedy at making grants to those in need.

Many individuals have kindly donated in response to our campaigns for those in receipt of the Winter Fuel Allowance to donate the Allowance if they can afford to do so.

We would prefer donations to be made by cheque (made out to ‘Cambridge Central Aid Society’) and sent to the Treasurer, Cambridge Central Aid Society, c/o 66 Devonshire Road, Cambridge, CB1 2BL.

If you are a taxpayer, then we can make the most of your donation if you would kindly complete our Gift Aid Form, and send it with your cheque

Our overhead costs are only about 0.5% of grants made – all the Trustees are volunteers, and the Cambridge CAB kindly lets us use their facilities.
