Charity begins at home

If there is a bright side to COVID-19, it is that we have all developed a renewed appreciation for the kindness of our neighbours and the work of local charities like Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust.  When you plan your charitable gifts, please will you consider supporting RNT, ensuring that your donation benefits your community.  Unlike the national non-profits, there are no luxury offices, no high-paid executives, and no high-pressure sales calls urging you to make or increase your gift.  All our income funds essential expenses.

There are many ways to give:

Amazon Smile

Amazon Smile

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support RNT every time you shop, at no cost to you. Register, or find out more details on Amazon.

If you are already an Amazon user you use the same account. On your first visit select RNT as the charitable organisation to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation.

Sustainer donations

You may also consider making a small monthly donation. The JustGiving website allows you to make a single donation or set up a monthly gift, either for a set-period or on-going. Whichever you choose, you may opt out at any time. There is no minimum amount and no cost to you, other than the gift you select.  A monthly Sustainer gift, at any level, will provide a valuable monthly income to RNT.  If you’re hesitant to make donations online, our Finance office is happy to take the details by phone – see below.

Remember us in your Will

We were recently approached by a resident who wanted to leave a legacy to the community that has been her home for many years.  She was unable to donate at this time but has opted to include a gift to Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust in her Will.  If you would like to contribute to a brighter future for residents of Ramsey, talk to a local solicitor who will advise you on the different types of gifts and how they might reduce any estate taxes.  Gifts need not be limited to money – jewellery, shares, or a property can be donated.  Your solicitor will need:

  • Our legal name: Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust
  • RNT Charitable Registration No: 1186733
  • RNT full address: Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust, Neighbourhood Office, Ramsey Library, 25 Great Whyte, Ramsey, PE26 1HG

If you would like to make a donation to support the work of RNT please contact our Finance Officer – Thank you!
