Educators' Trust India is solely funded by your charitable donations. We know that even a small gift from you makes a big difference to the lives of India's forgotten children and we are very grateful for your support.
There are a number of ways in which you can support us – for example:
One Off Donations
You can now also support us through JustGiving – either donate directly, or set up a JustGiving page as part of your fund raising activities. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money to Educators' Trust India and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer
We appreciate recurring donations as it allows us to better know the amount we are likely to receive each month. This in turn provides us with a little security so we can plan for the future.
Please remember the amounts below are all examples and you can choose to donate as little or as much as you like. What is important to us is that you feel comfortable with the amount and the way you choose to donate.

Pay PalPayPal do not recover Gift Aid for us, so if you are a British supporter please use Just Giving or fill out a Gift Aid declaration form. Due to not recovering Gift Aid, PayPal is best used for non-British donations. You don't need to be a PayPal user as they can accept donations without signing up by just using a credit/debit card. The donations come through to us immediately.
PayPal - which is instant, easy, reliable and secure.
Standing Order Form
A great way to help is to set up a Standing Order. This way we can better plan for the future knowing how much we are likely to get in each month. Normally our donations are in an ad-hoc basis so we never know if we will have enough to properly provide for the children.
To donate by standing order, please use the following Charity Standing Order Form, fill in all the details, including the Gift Aid declaration if you are a UK tax payer. Once complete then please post it to our UK Office who will take down your details and pass it onto your bank.
