How to donate

We are so grateful when we receive donations for our local hospitals as it not only recognises the care we provide but also means we can make things even better for our future patients.

We are currently building a website for Newcastle Hospitals NHS Charity which will simplify the process of making donations to support our work. In the meantime there are many ways in which you can support us:

Donate online

We have over five hundred individual charitable funds covering every ward, unit, specialty and service provided by the Royal Victoria Infirmary and Freeman Hospitals. This means that you can make a donation precisely to the unit or service you wish to support.

If you don't have a specific fund in mind and would just like to make a donation to Newcastle Hospitals NHS Charity for the general benefit of our hospitals please visit:

If you would like to make a specific donation, please see the list below to find out if the fund you wish to support has it's own JustGiving page. Don't worry if the fund isn't listed, if you call our Charitable Funds Office on 0191-213 7235 we can explain the different ways in which you can make a donation to that fund.

Many individuals like to make a gift to their local hospital after providing for their families and loved ones.

It is important to remember that gifts left to charities in a Will are exempt from Inheritance Tax.

You can download a possible wording for inclusion in a Will here in PDF format or if you would prefer, please ask your solicitor to contact the Charitable Funds Office on 0191 223 1434 or 

Find out more about Inheritance Tax at the HM Revenue & Customs website.

Payroll giving

This is a convenient way to make a single or regular donation to your hospital charity, and the individual will benefit from receiving tax relief on their donation.

You can make a payment through your employer's Payroll Giving Scheme by completing a 'Payroll Giving' form. With this scheme individuals can elect to have a payment (monthly/Weekly) deducted from their salary and paid directly to your hospital charity.

Please check with your employer that they offer the Payroll Giving facility.

Share giving

Gifts of shares and securities can be transferred to the charity and the individual can obtain tax relief on the contribution at the date of transfer.

Please contact the Charitable Funds Office on 0191 2231434 for further details or e-mail 

Company donations

Companies obtain full Corporation Tax relief on any donations to your hospital charity.

Please contact the Charitable Funds Office on 0191 2231434 for further details or e-mail

Matched giving

Many large commercial organisations are willing to 'match' contributions made by their employees who are either making donations to, or fundraising on behalf of, a registered charitable body, effectively doubling the donation.

Please check with your employer that they offer this facility.

Gift Aid

What is Gift Aid?

If you are a UK taxpayer, we can reclaim the basic rate of income tax on all of your donations directly from HM Customs: Adding more than 25% to the value of your gift.

Higher Rate taxpayers can claim the difference between the two rates against your own Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax liabilities.

How do I give by Gift Aid?

If you are donating by cheque or online, you will be invited to complete the necessary Gift Aid section.

Gift Aid and Fundraising

You can still claim Gift Aid whilst fundraising, but it is the individual sponsors that actually make the claim.  Our Official Sponsor Forms are specially designed to help you gather the relevant information.
