Funding and Donations

We rely solely on the goodwill of individuals and businesses to help  fund the work we do. The fostering service lends us office space, gives us stationery and a generous donation towards our costs.

We could do so much more with extra funds and have many projects in the planning but none of this can be made possible without your help.

There are many ways you can help support the ESFCA

Legacy Giving

Leaving a legacy is is a clear way of ensuring that not only do the causes you believe in benefit from your kindness and compassion, but that they can continue to do so after your death.

Not having a will means that if you die, your estate will be shared out according to statutory rules. If this happens, your loved ones may not benefit in the way you want and the charities you support are unlikely to benefit at all.

Help the children of East Sussex thrive. Make a will today, and include East Sussex Foster Care Association in your wishes.

The following wording could be helpful in ensuring that your legacy is committed to the future work of the East Sussex Foster Care Association:

"I give the sum of £  (amount in words)   to the East Sussex Foster Care Association, 3rd Floor, St. Marks House, 14 Upperton Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN21 1EP,  (Registered Charity Number 1092668) for its general charitable purposes."

or:

"I give   ..% of the residue of my estate to the East Sussex Foster Care Association, 3rd Floor, St. Marks House, 14 Upperton Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN21 1EP,  (Registered Charity Number 1092668) for its general charitable purposes."

Note: It is advisable to take professional legal advice when making a will.
