Although Camp XL aims to be self-sufficient with the programmes it runs, we are nonetheless much in need of financial help.
How will my donation be spent?
We use funds donated by our supporters to offer subsidies to those families wanting to send their children on a Christian camp, but unable to afford it. Donations also help us subsidise the cost to those of our volunteers who would otherwise be unable to attend - especially the many university students on whom we rely!
Camp XL employs no paid staff whatsoever, and so you can be sure that every penny donated goes directly to helping others attend one of our great Christian camps.
How can I give?
The simplest way to support our work at Camp XL is to make a one-off online donation (see below). We would also be thrilled if you'd like to consider setting-up a regular gift by standing order. Please just contact us in this instance.
If you have a Debit/Credit card, you can donate online through the Charities Aid Foundation. You do not need to open an account with them, or to have any pre-existing arrangements to do so.Simply click on the "donate now' link at the end of this section, and then enter "Camp XL" in to the first box (marked "Keywords/Phrase").
This will bring up a tab showing our listing. Click on it to be fully satisfied you have indeed found us (and not another organisation with a similar name!) and then click on "Donate" and follow the instructions. Thank you so much!
CAF levy a 5% charge for this service, but donating this way is by far our preferred option. It removes the administrative burden from us, and (if you are a UK taxpayer), allows you to reclaim the tax you have already suffered, and pass that on to us too... which will more than cover the administration fee. (If you are a higher rate taxpayer, the additional tax is recoverable by you through your annual return)
Did you know that you can help pay for a child to attend one of our camps just by shopping online at over 3,000 retailers - and it won't cost you a single penny extra?
'Give As You Live' works with more than 3,000 top retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Tesco and Expedia to turn a percentage of every penny you spend online into a donation for us. The retailer makes the donation out of his margin, so it won't cost you a sigle penny.
All you have to do is sign up. You can either shop through the 'Give As You Live' website, or install the Shopping Bar to your browser - a safe and simple process which only takes a few seconds.
