Story

This page has been created by The Donkey Sanctuary for people who would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one, friend or colleague.

Many people choose to remember a loved one by making a donation in memory or by asking for donations as an alternative to sending flowers to a funeral.  A memorial donation is a fitting way to remember a special person, while at the same time helping others.

If you would like your donation in memory to be acknowledged, please complete the online form with your name and preferred method of contact as well as letting us know the name of the person in whose memory you are donating.

We keep our fundraising and administration costs as low as possible so as to ensure the maximum amount of donations being available is spent on the care and welfare of the donkeys.
In 2014 our fundraising and governance costs were 18.7 pence for every £1 of expenditure.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a donation to the The Donkey Sanctuary.

If you are a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid.

It's with a heavy heart we say goodnight to our oldest donkey for the final time. Tessa turned 50 earlier this year, but had become too uncomfortable with chronic arthritis. She lived to a good age and brought many smiles to people's faces. Thank you for your wonderful messages.
