Can I choose which project my gift will support?

Donate to the Royal Hospital Chelsea

Yes, please contact us on 020 7881 5243 so that we can talk this through with you. Alternatively,if you prefer we can designate the funds at the discretion of the Governor and the Commissioners to the most urgent need.

What level of commitment does naming something require?

There are many opportunities for supporters of the Royal Hospital Chelsea to make a named gift, and to honour a friend or loved one with such a gift. You will need to speak to us about this so that we can suggest something to you which best suits your requirements.

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

Your annual gift or pledge payment of any size makes a genuine impact. Most of our gifts are small and it is their collective value which is of such lasting importance.

Can I make a pledge or make my donations in instalments?

Many donors find it more convenient to complete their gift over a number of payments. For example, a gift of £5,000 can be completed over five years. Speak with a member of the Fundraising Team to discuss the pledge and payment options that are most comfortable for you.
