Philanthropy

How we are funded

Part of our work is funded by public sector funding through police and crime commissioners, who commission victims’ services in their areas. However, this means that every year there is a level of uncertainty in funding for our support services for people affected by crime in communities across England and Wales. 

The remainder of our costs, including specialist project funding such as our work with children and young people, rely entirely on donations from individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations.

Making a major gift

Individual donors and grant making trusts and foundations play an essential role in Victim Support’s work. We work with supporters to ensure that we deliver the best support possible to people affected crime. We build bespoke relationships, providing detailed reports on Victim Support’s work and specialist areas to show how contributions have made a significant impact. We also recognise our supporters through exclusive ‘Thank You’ events, which give our supporters an opportunity to network and meet like-minded philanthropists. 

Major donors

If you’re an individual interested in making a major gift, please contact Mylen Namocatcat by email on mylen.namocatcat@victimsupport.org.uk, or call her on 0207 268 0223, to find out more about our work, tax-efficient giving and how you can help.

“We support Victim Support because of the important work they do for victims – women, men and children whose lives have been impacted by crime. There is so much violence in the world but Victim Support helps people to become stronger even through the toughest of times; we really admire their work.” - Major donor, London

President's club

Last year Victim Support launched the President’s Club for supporters who help us to fund our vital services and specialist projects. We have individual relationships with all of our supporters, but the President’s Club is a way for us to recognise and thank those who have made a particularly valuable or significant contribution.

There are three levels of membership of the President’s Club:

The Director’s Circle

For those who have made gifts to Victim Support of between £1,000 and £5,000. Benefits include:

  • an annual thank-you letter from our Director of Engagement
  • twice-yearly updates
  • the annual Stewardship Event
  • recognition on our website (optional) and in the annual President’s Club booklet. 

The 1974 Circle

For those who have made gifts to Victim Support of between £5,000 and £10,000. Benefits include:

  • an annual thank-you letter from our Chief Executive
  • twice-yearly updates
  • the annual Stewardship Event
  • recognition on our website (optional), in the annual President’s Club booklet and our annual reports.

The President’s Circle

Members of the President’s Circle receive all the benefits of the 1974 Circle, plus bespoke engagement opportunities and an annual dinner with our Chair and President.
