The benefits of monthly giving

Monthly giving gives you the opportunity to make a more substantial contribution, tailored to your budget. By spreading the amount over the year, you can offer a higher cumulative total, while reducing the immediate financial impact, thus respecting your budget.
With direct debit, you can contribute without having to worry about renewing your donation, thus ensuring the continuity of your support.
Every gesture of generosity, large or small, has a significant long-term impact. The regularity of your contributions enables us to reach more ambitious goals and support longer-term projects.
Tax management
At the end of the year, receive a consolidated tax receipt for all your donations, simplifying tax management.
