Donating in memory

Losing a loved one to suicide is different to any other kind of bereavement, which means it can be very isolating and lonely.

There are so many ways to fundraise in memory of a loved one, from running marathons, to organising bake sales, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Donation FAQs

It can take us a few days to process your donations once we have received them, but as soon as we do receive your donation we will send you a thank you letter by way of receipt.

You can pay in your donation online.

Or by post - send a cheque, postal order or charity voucher made out to Campaign Against Living Miserably to our address:

CALM, 5 Wootton Street, London, SE1 8TG

Let us know when you have paid in your fundraising so we can keep an eye out for it.

A donation from yourself would mean a great deal to CALM and the people we support. The vast majority of the money we raise from generous donors like yourself is unrestricted, meaning we can spend it on all areas of our work. It could go to our life-saving suicide prevention helpline, which answered over 157,000 calls from people in need in 2021.

To give you an idea of what this looks like, for every £1 received by CALM, 83p is spent on charitable activities (helpline/livechat, campaigns and other services). The remaining 17p goes on fundraising and governance. You can also find out more about how we and other charities spend their money by looking on the Charities commission website.

CALM currently spends 83% of its expenditure on delivering our services: that’s answering calls and chats on our helpline; working with communities across the country; and campaigning for better awareness and understanding of suicide and its devastating impact. Everything else is spent on keeping the charity running and fundraising to ensure we can help the hundreds of thousands of people who need our support every year.
