Support our work Donate Donate Fundraise You can donate or sign up to a regular donation to help us plan for the future. We are very proud to say that our admin costs are kept very low and make up less than 15% of the charity's income. The day-to-day cost of running the CLEFT office is generously donated to the charity, as was the printing and design costs of our current leaflet and stationery. The cost of the flights to send the CLEFT team around the world has so far been paid by Emirates or, in other circumstances, is self-funded. Without the generosity of all the people who have donated all these things and more, the money that we receive from our donors and fundraisers would not go as far as it does to help bridge the knowledge and care in clefts both in the UK and overseas. Donate to a specific appeal If you have a specific appeal you would like to donate to, please check out which appeals are currently running. If you would specifically like to fund either research or the overseas work, please contact the CLEFT office by clicking the button below. Otherwise, all donations received will be allocated on a need basis. Donate an auction item Finally, we are always very grateful for donations you can make to our CLEFT auctions. These auctions are held twice a year at our golf days at Thorndon Park Golf Club and at Rochford Golf Club. These auctions are hugely popular but their success depends entirely on the generosity of our donors. If you have any of the following items (though this list is not exhaustive) and would like them to be auctioned at our next golf day, please contact the CLEFT office: Sporting items: tickets to events. sports memorabilia Vouchers for meals or afternoon teas Spa treatments or spa days Hampers or items to go in the hamper Gift cards The use of a holiday home for a week / weekend break Contact the CLEFT office here. Thank you!
