Different ways to donate
Donate via PAC-UK's Virgin Money Giving page! Regular payments & single donations: Regular direct debits are particularly welcome as they give us much needed stability of income over the long term. They also remind us how much our supporters value what we do! You can make regular and single, one-off donations using a debit or credit card via PAC-UK's Virgin Money Giving account. It’s quick, easy, secure and you'll be making a difference today. Gift Aid is collected via Virgin for those eligible.
Cheques, Postal Orders & CAF Cheques: You can send a cheque or postal order, made payable to PAC-UK to our office address. We also accept CAF cheques, either posted to us or paid directly into our bank.
Payroll giving: If your workplace participates in a payroll giving scheme, you can nominate PAC-UK as your charity of choice. Please ask your employer for details. Please contact us for further information.
Corporate donors: We would be delighted to hear from corporate organisations warm to our cause. Financial support is needed to ensure the smooth running of all our services: to adoptive families, to adult adoptees, to birth families and to the professionals who work with them. Please contact us for further information.
Leaving a legacy:
Many of you reading our website will already be fully aware that adoption is a lifelong journey. Whatever role adoption has played in your life, I can say with confidence that it will have been life-changing. We are grateful every year to those who, acknowledging the importance of adoption in their lives, include a gift to the benefit of PAC-UK in their will. Would you consider doing the same when you come to draw up your will? If you require help or advice on this matter, please contact us.Kate Newton, Head of Fundraising

Help PAC-UK when you shop
Amazon: By using the Amazon widget below (also in the footer of every page of the PAC-UK website) when making any purchases from online retailers Amazon, up to 7.5% of your order will automatically be donated to PAC-UK at no extra cost to you.
Easy Fundraising: easyfundraising.org.uk helps charities to raise money when their supporters shop online. It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for PAC-UK instead. It's as simple as that! You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 1.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them! It only takes 2 minutes to fill in the registration form and you're good to go!
Help PAC-UK when you recycle
Recycle4Charity: Do you have a problem knowing what to do with your used inkjet cartridges and unwanted mobile phones? We've found a way to take them off your hands, and earn money for PAC-UK! Contact us for your free supply of envelopes, so you need never send another cartridge or mobile to landfill again! Simply pop your used mobile phones inside, drop it in the postbox (postage is free!) and PAC-UK will receive on average between £3.00-£5.00 for each mobile you send away to be recycled. Inkjet cartridges can also be sent (not via Freepost) – direct to the PAC-UK office please. Alternatively, you can register with recycle4charity and choose PAC-UK as your charity so you can keep track of the money you have raised and have the free pre-paid envelopes sent directly to you.
Help PAC-UK by supporting our fundraising events
PAC-UK staff and supporters participate in a number of regular sporting events each year. Forthcoming events in 2017/18 include; The Great North Run (September 2017), 10k Regent’s Park Run (November 2017) and The Brighton Marathon (April 2018). If you arrange your own event and would like to nominate PAC-UK to benefit from the proceeds, please do let us know! In the past we have been nominated by a couple getting married, and a couple entering into a civil partnership. Thank you so much for thinking of us at these key times in your life.
We have developed a fundraising pack which can be viewed and downloaded online. If you would prefer a hard-copy to be sent to you in the post, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our donations return form will need to be returned to us should you receive any offline donations throughout your fundraising. (If you are raising your money online, please use Virgin Money Giving and not Just Giving as we are not registered with them.)
