Preventing Homelessness in Reading

In memory

If you’d like to leave a gift for Launchpad in your will or request your loved ones donate to us in your memory, we’d be very grateful and here’s how it can be done:


Leaving a donation to Launchpad in your will is a lovely way of supporting our work, now and in the future, your generosity will have a lasting impact on those vulnerable to homelessness in Reading.

All you need to do is state in your will that you wish Launchpad to receive either:

Any sum you leave is free from Inheritance Tax. For more information on writing your will please talk to a solicitor.

Memory Giving

Memory Giving or a JustGiving In Memory pages let you make an online donation in memory of a loved one, perhaps instead of floral tributes. If your loved one was passionate about Launchpad by asking for donations in their memory, we can continue with the work they cared about.

The funeral company can set up the Memory Giving page for you.

Or you can set up your own JustGiving In Memory page.

Gift Aid
Gift Aid makes a huge difference to us. We receive an extra 25% and it costs you nothing! £5 becomes £6.25, £10 becomes £12.50.

If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can make your donations to Launchpad go even further. Just fill in and return a simple form and we can claim back 25p of tax for every pound you donate. If you’ve donated to us or plan to donate in other ways, completing this form will make your money go further.

Please give your full name and home address and tick the relevant box or we can’t claim Gift Aid.
