How Your Donations Will Be Used
All donations, when undesignated, will be used for such purposes as Pathway judges will best advantage our service users.
Where the donor wishes to express a preference for the application of their donation, PathwayProject will take the greatest care to ensure that such wishes are carried out.
Where the donor restricts the application of their donation, Pathway Project will apply the gift to the purpose originally intended. The priorities of Pathway Project will change from time to time. Should this happen, alternative uses for restricted donations will be discussed with the donor or the donor’s representative.
All donations will be acknowledged promptly.
You can also donate to us in the following ways:
Clothing and toiletries.
Do you have any unwanted clothes, shoes or accessories you can donate to Pathway Project? We always need women’s and children’s clothes for our service users who quite often leave in the middle of the night with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
Please make sure all items donated are in very good condition as these do go to our women and children in crisis.
Please note that any surplus items we cannot store or do not have demand we do pass on to Cash4Clothes to raise vital funds for the Pathway Project.
We also accept toiletries and cosmetics donations for the adults and children we support. Please make sure all toiletries and cosmetics are new and unopened.
Any used items will be disposed of for health and safety reasons.
Donations can be dropped off at the Hope Centre which is a convenient location in Lichfield. Please call 01543 442 610 or email April firstname.lastname@example.org prior to dropping off donations to arrange a donation drop off time that’s suitable.
Please note that unfortunately we cannot accept used toys for health and safety reasons.
We can however accept new and packaged toys for our children, if you wish to donate in this way.
We accept furniture donations on an as needed basis, as unfortunately our building does not have adequate storage space for larger items.
When we have ladies moving into new homes we often ask for furniture via our Facebook page which can be found at @pathwayprojectlichfield
If you have any enquiries please email April on email@example.com
Please note that due to cost and time we are unable to collect donations from you.
Gifts in kind
Gifts in kind, also referred to as in-kind donations, is a kind of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given.
In the past various businesses have been able to provide a wide range of services, from legal advice, design and print, IT advice, through to refreshments for our events via the gifts in kind method.
If this is something that interests you please get in touch with Wendy Dee on firstname.lastname@example.org
Amazon wish list.
Our amazon wish list started around Christmas of 2018 and has carried on each year since. It’s a great way of receiving the presents the children have asked for and also a lovely way for people to give back over the festive period.
We now have a list on our Amazon page of items we need in our refuges and also items we need for our groups.
All items you buy come straight to us at the hope centre. It’s a great way of donating something to us that you know we need.
