Cheques should be made payable to “Calcutta Rescue Fund“. provide a FREE service where you can shop with your favourite online stores and at no extra cost and raise funds for Calcutta Rescue.

You still shop directly with each retailer as you would normally, but simply by using the links from the easyfundraising site first, each purchase you make will generate a cashback donation.

Legacies are a very important part of Calcutta Rescue Fund’s income. Please consider remembering us when you make your will.

Calcutta Rescue Fund is a registered charity No: 290917 and all legacies of whatever amount are free of inheritance tax, and will not affect or reduce any other inheritance tax allowances or exemptions to which the donor’s estate is entitled.

Some of our supporters make donations to Calcutta Rescue Fund in memory of a loved one. If you would like to do this, you can send us a cheque or donate online, or set up an online giving page so that other people can donate in memory of a loved one.

I want to Gift Aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past four years to Calcutta Rescue Fund. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
We reclaim Gift Aid from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Please tell us if you want to cancel this declaration or you change your name or home address.
