You can now donate securely with any major credit/debit card via our online secure server & World pay. Simply click on donate now to start your donation and then follow the on-screen instructions. Thank you for helping to ensure that Safe Haven can continue its work in the Middle East. If you are a taxpayer, once you have made your donation, don’t forget to complete a Gift Aid declaration to allow us to reclaim an extra 25p for every pound donated from the Inland Revenue – for further information see below.

Safe Haven relies entirely on donations from the public to be able to continue its vital work with donkeys in Israel and the West Bank. To make a donation by cheque, postal order or CAF voucher, please click here for a donation form to print off, complete and return to our UK headquarters.

If you are in the UK, you can donate to us using your mobile phone. Simply text DONKEY followed by the amount you want to give to 70085, for example DONKEY 5. Texts will cost the amount you donate plus your standard network rate for the text.

Once you have ensured that your loved ones are properly provided for, please consider leaving a gift to Safe Haven for Donkeys in your Will. This is one of the most effective ways in which you can really make a difference to the future of the donkeys of Israel and the West Bank. Your solicitor or other legal representative will be able to advise you on making your Will or adding a Codicil to an existing Will. For a copy of the suggested wording, please click here

Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving more to charity. If you are a UK taxpayer, the Gift Aid scheme means that for every pound you give to Safe Haven for Donkeys, we could receive an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue. This means that a £10 “Gift Aided” donation is worth £12.50 to us – imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost you a thing.
Providing you pay tax (Income and/or Capital Gains) Safe Haven will be entitled to reclaim on your donations in the same financial year. Even if you are not working you may still be a taxpayer – for example, savings and private pension plans are taxed and the sale of property or shares attracts Capital Gains tax.
It is surprisingly easy to “Gift Aid” your donations – all you have to do is make a simple declaration (joint if the donation was from one or more people) that you wish us to reclaim tax on any donations you have made during the previous 4 years and any you may make in the future.
You can make this declaration in one of three easy ways:

  1. Print off and complete the Gift Aid declaration and return it to Safe Haven’s headquarters
  2. E-mail giving Safe Haven permission to reclaim tax on any donations you have made in the last four years or may make in the future, remembering to quote your full name, address and supporter number
  3. Telephone us on +44 (0) 1444 470136

If you are a higher rate taxpayer there is even better news – you are eligible to reclaim even more tax by including details of your donations on your Self-Assessment form.

During the last year, Safe Haven has been able to reclaim £25,000 from the Inland Revenue – that’s enough to pay for a veterinary surgeon to visit the sanctuary every day – so as you can see, “Gift Aiding” your donations really would make a huge difference to our work!
