Your generosity can change lives

As a major donor, you can help provide life-changing care and support to children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

In return, we’ll make sure you feel part of Tŷ Hafan’s team and completely connected to the children and families you help in Wales.




Why your support is needed so much

Every year, we need to raise £5.6 million to run our hospice and provide our essential outreach services in communities in Wales.

This is something we’re only able to do because of the kindness and generosity of our wonderful supporters, including our major donors.

By becoming one of our major donors, you’ll help us provide specialist care and support to families who often have no one else to turn to.

You’ll also be supported by a dedicated major donor expert who will work closely with you to create a mutually rewarding partnership.

If you’re looking to embark on a truly inspiring and fulfilling, please consider becoming one of our very special major donors. Today, tomorrow and long into the future, you can help make a short life a full life.

How you can improve young lives

Give a financial donation

Giving a gift of £5,000 and above is a truly special way to help make short lives full lives.

Straightaway, we’ll start to use your generous donation to reach and support more families in Wales who could benefit from our short break care, emotional support and other vital services.

Please get in touch with Rachel Ritter on rachel.ritter@tyhafan.org or 029 20532 191 to find out more.

Give a gift of shares

Donating your shares to Tŷ Hafan is one of the most tax-effective ways you can give, as you won’t pay capital gains tax on the shares you donate.

If you pay income tax at 40% or 45%, you’ll also be able to claim income tax relief equal to 40% or 45% of the value of your gift, depending on which rate of tax you pay.

Please get in touch with Rachel Ritter on rachel.ritter@tyhafan.org or 029 20532 191 to find out more. We’ll work closely with you to make the process of donating your shares as easy as possible.

A mutually rewarding partnership

We believe it’s incredibly important that our major donors feel totally connected to Tŷ Hafan and the children and families we care for. Our recognition and reward programme for major donors includes:

  • Events where you can meet members of our senior team and care professionals who make such an important difference in the lives of the children we support.
  • Personalised visits to our hospice. This gives you the chance to see first-hand our facilities and services and the impact your kindness and generosity is having on young lives.
