Your Help With Funding Our Work
Individual support and other funding sources
We aim to build deep, long-term relationships with individuals, trusts and foundations who can support us. We value your advice and kindness, helping us maintain a stable path for future services and people.
We also host regular events and where appropriate, can arrange for you to visit a project you have supported, so you can see first-hand the difference your commitment has made.
Making a big gift to Highgate Newtown Community Centre makes a big difference
We understand that when you make a charitable donation, you want to know exactly where your money is going, and we pledge to be clear and transparent when it comes to spending your contributions.
Highgate Newtown Community Centre work would not be possible without generous people like you. We appreciate every single gift we receive and we work hard to ensure that not a penny is wasted in our pledge to create outstanding services.
Your support keeps local services for all ages in your community, funding is needed each year.
These are our core services supported by you:
Under 5’s – free services
£23,000 a year
This covers the cost of our children under 5’s coordinator and tutors, helping us to keep these vital services free. See the under 5’s project page to discover the wonderful work we are doing.
After School Clubs in English, Maths and Science
£36,000 a year
Help us to support struggling children and teenagers, to improve their life chances with further education. Many local families cannot afford these opportunities and without support for these classes, their further education cannot take place. The cost covers the support provided by three tutors.
Community Lunch Club
£27,000 a year
Supports the cooks wage and funding for food which is not donated. Your funding keeps the overall cost of the meal low, so all are able to enjoy.
Many people old and younger never have a hot cooked meal, sitting at a table, sharing company and friendships. It is impossible to stress enough how important and needed this service is. Lunch clubs help to restore hope to those forgotten and lonely, those on very low incomes, who often must make hard choices between heating the home or eating. Our current price for lunch is £2.50, for a fantastic meal. We cannot run this much needed service without funding support. Many of our diners are in temporary housing or homeless. By donating, you too are welcome to join us for lunch at one of our venues, see the benefits of this service and meet our dedicated team.
Older People Keep Fit Classes
Covers 5 tutors for the year
Each morning Monday to Friday you will see ages from 60 plus to 97 years of age coming to keep fit sessions. Many comment on how it helps them with depression and keeps them moving each week. Sessions include circle dancing, pilates, tai chi. By keeping the service free, all incomes can enjoy keeping fit together. Although some participants are able to make a donation and we thank them for this, we still need further funding to support the tutors each week and associated costs.

If you are a UK tax payer and you’ve given us permission, we can claim Gift Aid on your donation. Highgate Newtown Community Centre can only claim back the basic tax rate of 20% in Gift Aid. However, if you pay a Higher Rate of income tax (40% or above), you could be entitled to a tax rebate on your donation, worth the difference between the basic rate of tax and your higher rate. This extra could make a real difference to your donation.
How to claim and donate your rebate
You can contact your local tax office and reclaim the tax on your donations using a P810 form.
