Major gifts

A 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.

Legacies and bequests

Making a will is one of the most important things you can do.  It is a chance to ensure that your savings and assets go to those you love and the causes that you care about.

At the Octavia Foundation we know that your family and loved ones come first and that ensuring they are provided for is your first priority. Only then would we ask you to consider remembering those in need in your neighbourhood.

A gift in your will to the Octavia Foundation would make a lasting difference. Whether it’s a local young person who needs support and an alternative to the gangs his peers are joining, the lonely older lady across the road with no-one to talk to, or a neighbour who has fallen on hard times and desperately wants to find work. Your contribution, however large or small, will have an impact.  

All gifts to charity in your will are completely free from inheritance tax.
