Wickham Community Land Trust

Giving to our charity

Financial contributions to Wickham CLT are always welcomed. Our trustees and volunteers are unpaid so there are no direct administration costs. However, we incur expense whenever we employ specialists for property maintenance and legal services, for example.

WCLT homes are offered to local people at rates that are below those of the open market. These homes are for local individuals or perhaps local families of limited means, who either cannot afford private sector rents or do not score highly for points on social housing schemes.

WCLT has always depended on grants and donations from several supporters to make it financially possible to continue our charity's work. So far, that has increased the opportunities for local families to benefit from our affordable homes.

Make a Donation

Please send us a donation at any time.

Alternatively, if you prefer, you can send us a cheque, made payable to W.C.L.T., to the postal address on our contact us page.

Give As You Shop

As another option, you can benefit us, whenever you purchase items online, by using the free service provided by the Easyfunding organisation. They give us a small fee, funded by the household name brands that you buy from, for every transaction. This service is funded by the selling brands and therefore costs you nothing.

Comprehensive instructions for setting up and use are given on Our Easyfunding page.
