Donations & Fund Raising
Although our day to day finances are optimised in terms of running costs we are reliant on public and private charitable donations to cater for longer term capital projects and equipment needs that emerge from time to time in order to keep pace with the standards expected in an evolving care sector.
We are of course a registered Jersey Charity and a member of The Association of Jersey Charities. We do not trade for long term profit and bar working balances reinvest in the equipment and fabric of Ridout House on a regular basis.
We have been very successful over the past few years in raising over £400,000, thanks to our fundraiser Jurat Geoffrey Allo. Funds have been kindly donated from a variety of sources to complete a wide range of projects and continue to do so. But like any business, especially a charity, the need to reinvest is ever present as we continue to plan towards our next project and campaign for funding from all those wonderful people who have supported us so far. Inevitably however we do need to expand our sources of funding over time. This might be achieved by direct donations or through estate planning if you feel able to give more substantial long term support.
We are of course very happy to accept donations directly no matter how small. If you feel able to support us in this way please click here to send us an email.
You may wish to consider providing more lasting support for our work in order to sustain what has already been a memorable 40 years in providing care for senior citizens. This might be achieved via a bequest, endowment or similar testamentary instruction in terms of enduring support for the future , ensuring our operation for many years to come. If you would consider supporting us either now or in the future you may in the first instance wish to discuss matters with your legal advisor who will be able to consider what is appropriate relative to any support you may have in mind.
Full audited accounts are available on request should you require a greater understanding of our activities and of course any donations will be personally acknowledged with our grateful thanks.
Thank you for considering us, any help being greatly appreciated.
