Thanks to everyone who has joined our community of monthly donors. By becoming a CENS Champion, you are changing the lives of people who have found themselves homeless. We have had 70% positive move-ons in the last 3 months. Your regular donations have helped us achieve that. As a monthly donor, you are part of the fabric of CENS, playing a direct role in our long-term mission. You are one of the team.

Giving monthly

Monthly giving is an important and rewarding way to show your support for CENS. Even just a few pounds a month can help us budget and plan, making a huge difference.

Why do we value monthly donations?

  • Small monthly donations can have just as much impact as a large, on-off donation. Guaranteed donations are a comfort for charities such as CENS, which run on the generosity of others.
  • A regular income means we can plan ahead.
  • Regular donations allow us to continue to help people during slower months, offering stability and continuity of our service.
  • We can commit to long term projects with the support of monthly donations.
  • Even a small monthly contribution will build up substantial support over the course of a year.

Why monthly donations are good for you

  • Automated monthly donations require less admin for us and for you. Once you have signed up, you don’t have to worry about remembering to support us. All you need to do is sit back and watch all the great work CENS is doing, thanks to you.
  • Monthly contributions can be more affordable and easier to budget than larger one-off gifts.
  • As a monthly donor, we will regularly update you about all the good you are doing.

With a loyal and passionate group of CENS Champions, we can focus our time and resources on helping our residents and on outreach to new supporters and partners. So, we would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has signed up to give monthly – you are truly changing lives.
