Can I choose which project my gift will support?

Donate to the Royal Hospital Chelsea

We’ll do our best to use your gift in the way that you prefer. Please call us on 020 7881 5243  so that we can talk through the options with you. Alternatively, we can make sure we use your kind donation wherever the need is greatest.

Is it possible to dedicate a room in the Royal Hospital to an individual when making a donation?

There are opportunities for a significant gift from a supporter to be recognised by dedicating a berth or room in the Hospital in their name, or in honour of a friend or loved one. If you are considering this and would like to know more, please contact  Allan McLaren on 020 7881 5243to discuss the options that might best suit your needs.

I am unable to make a large gift? Will my donation really make a difference?

Gifts of any size makes a genuine impact on our work here at the Royal Hospital. Most of our gifts are small and it is their collective value which is of such lasting importance. Giving a regular monthly gift is easy and convenient and helps us to plan ahead with confidence.

Can I make a pledge to give a certain amount, or make my donations in instalments?

Many supporters find it convenient to pledge a specific amount over a set period, or to complete their gift over a number of payments. For example, a gift of £5,000 can be completed over five years. Please get in touch with a member of our Fundraising team to discuss the pledge and payment options that are most comfortable for you.

I’m considering remembering the Royal Hospital Chelsea in my Will – is it easy to do?

Remembering the Royal Hospital in your Will is a wonderful way to keep on helping a cause you care about after you’ve gone. It’s straightforward to do and can make a really powerful difference. Find out more about how you can help future generations of Chelsea Pensioners here, or contact Alan McLaren on 020 7881 5243 for a confidential conversation.
