You can make a difference to homeless young people in a very immediate and direct way by making a donation, however big or small, to our cause. Your help will ensure that we can continue to give local young people the opportunity to regain control of their lives. There are many ways you can choose to donate. If you would like to donate towards our work in a particular area please contact the Fundraising team via the methods detailed below.
NB: If the money you have to donate was raised through sponsorship at a St Basils event and you want to donate it online or via Paypal please inform the fundraising team first so that this money can be added to the grand total for the event. Otherwise it will be treated as a general donation.
If you want to donate by BACS please contact the Fundraising team for our bank details.
You can either call us on 0121 772 9614 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your support!
This winter we're asking people to donate to help us cover the costs of housing almost 500 young people every night.
Just £5* a day means we can support one young person out of homelessness. Every £5 you donate will transform someones life.
Can you help us cover it?
*HOW IS THE £5 ASK CALCULATED?
If we had no fundraising, our 2019/20 budgeted deficit would be some £855k. St Basils has 488 bed spaces across their projects, and the deficit mentioned represents £4.80 per day per room. Adjusted for empty rooms at 6.5%, that equates to a daily shortfall of £5.13 per room, which we have reduced down to £5 for the purpose of making a clear request of what we need to keep going.
Please use PayPal or click on the Virgin Money Giving 'make a donation' button below to donate to us. Using these methods will ensure we receive 100% of your donation.
NB: If the money you're donating was raised through taking part in a St Basils event please email the fundraising team first via email@example.com

CHEQUE PAYMENTS - If you wish to send us a cheque, please make it payable to 'St Basils' and send it to: Fundraising Department, St Basils, Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AX.
If this is money you raised at a St Basils event please write the name and location of the event and your team name or wristband/ ticket number on the back of the cheque.
Please see 'St Basils in your area' for how to donate used items to your local project. We particularly welcome complete starter packs, unopened toiletries and long-life food. We are also in need of new items or unwanted presents such as bath/shower sets or age appropriate nightwear for our Nightstop scheme.
We are not in need of knitted blankets at the moment as we receive these free from a regular supplier. If your knitting group would like to donate to us, please consider knitting baby clothes. These are always appreciated in the winter months.
All second-hand clothing donations must have been washed and be age appropriate (clothes that have been worn by babies or 16-25 year olds). Thank you for your assistance on this.
Unfortunately we cannot take used bedding/ sheets/ towels (even if washed), or electrical items at this time. We can't always take furniture as we have no storage space or transport for larger items. However other charities do take furniture including the British Heart Foundation. N.B: This is just a suggestion as to who else may be able to help. You will need to speak to the charity direct for confirmation.
