Philanthropy

Significant donations from philanthropists like you are vital to our work for children and adults with deafblindness.

At Sense International we build mutually beneficial, long-term partnerships with philanthropists who believe in a world where every person with deafblindness receives the support they need to live, learn and thrive.

By giving a generous donation you will change the life of a person with deafblindness and that’s why we are committed to making sure you see the impact your gift has. Through tailored and bespoke communications, we will bring you closer to our work, giving you a deep insight into the difference you are making.

Ways to give

Join our Ambassador’s Circle 

By becoming a Sense International Ambassador, you will join a group of dedicated individuals who have a vital role to play.

By pledging your support Sense International can be nimble, flexible and efficient as your donation will be directed to wherever the need is greatest, reaching some of the world’s most marginalised people.

As a Sense International Ambassador you will:

  • Receive bespoke communications about our work
  • Be invited to exclusive online and in-person events attended by fellow Ambassadors, Sense International experts, our President Lord Levy and, on occasion, our Patron, HRH The Princess Royal
  • Receive an annual report about how your gift has transformed lives
  • Be invited to join a group field trip to visit our work internationally and meet people with deafblindness who you have helped
  • Be recognised in Sense International’s Annual Review as our way of saying thank you

We ask all Ambassadors to commit to giving a minimum donation of £5,000. You can choose to give by Direct Debit or make a one-off donation. Your incredible commitment will create lasting change for people with deafblindness. To find out more about becoming a Sense International Ambassador, please get in touch with Lucy Bloxam, Philanthropy Manager on 020 7014 9300 or lucy.bloxam@senseinternational.org.uk.

Fund a specific area of our work

Depending on the level of your investment you can choose to fund a specific area of our work. Perhaps you have a specific interest such as programmes for young children with deafblindness, promoting inclusive education or vocational training for young people with deafblindness. Wherever your interest lies we would love to hear from you and work together to finding the right programme to suit your philanthropic mission. You can see examples of some of our programmes on the latest appeals and funded projects page.
