Guidance for financial contributions to the NSPA
Levels of contribution
Here are suggested levels of contribution based on the annual income of your organisation:
|Annual Income||Suggested contribution|
|Up to £250k||£250|
|Up to £1 million||£500|
|Up to £3 million||£1K|
|Up to £5 million||£1.5K|
|Up to £10 million||£2K|
|Up to £15 million||£2.5K|
|Up to £20 million||£3K|
|Up to £25 million||£3.5K|
|Up to £30 million||£4K|
|Up to £50 million||£4.5K|
|Over £50 million||£5K|
This provides no more than a guide for organisations as to an appropriate level of contribution and ultimately it is at a member organisation’s discretion as to its level of contribution. Please remember that any donation will make a difference to us; if all 200 of our organisational members gave us just £100 we would have £20,000 to support our work.
How to make a payment
NSPA funds are held in trust by Samaritans, as the current host organisation and provider of the NSPA’s Secretariat. All members’ contributions are held in a restricted fund used only to fund NSPA projects and activities
Therefore your voluntary contribution should be paid directly to Samaritans. If you require an invoice in order to make a contribution, please contact Penny Fosten on firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Account name: Samaritans
Account number: 01446634
Sort code: 30-97-73
Please quote ‘NSPA Member Contribution’ as your payment reference
Small donations can be made via the NSPA Virgin Money Giving account – online here.
Please make cheques payable to Samaritans and ensure that you write ‘For NSPA work’ on the back of the cheque or in the letter, and then send it to:
National Suicide Prevention Alliance
The Upper Mill
If you aren’t able to make a financial contribution this year, we would also appreciate offers of in-kind support, including meeting spaces and staff time, particularly in areas like communications, design, copy-writing, web design and social media.
Please email Penny Fosten on email@example.com with any offers of in-kind support.
