Gentleman winning hamper  webA major gift to the Octavia Foundation is an investment in your local community.

A significant donation can help us deliver a special project that runs for a fixed period of time yet has a lasting impact for local people. Or it can help us to extend our core services and activities to meet increasing needs.

A major gift to the Octavia Foundation will enable us to ensure that more older, vulnerable people are able to live independent and healthier lives; that more young people are given the support, guidance and opportunities they need; and that our communities can continue to thrive and develop.

If you are in a position to make a major donation towards the work of the Octavia Foundation, we would love to hear from you. You can make a donation online now or, if you prefer, you can print off a paper donation form and post it back to us at our head office address; Emily House, 202-208 Kensal Road, London W10 5BN, marked for the attention of the Octavia Foundation fundraising team.

You can also contact our Fundraising team to discuss how your donation would make a difference.
