Educating young people who are blind or vision impaired

How to Donate

Why donate to NCW?

The school fees paid by parents or by local authorities cover the costs of educating and caring for the children. They don’t cover improvements to school buildings, unexpected repairs, the costs of college vehicles and a whole range of other costs we face every year to be able to give the young people at NCW the very best education and the very best experiences. We are always very grateful to receive any donation that will help us to provide equipment, resources, and opportunities for our students. Our fundraising team work with supporters across the world to help us raise money to cover all the costs of running a 21st century school and to provide the extras that any child with a vision impairment deserves.

Here are some examples of the costs of resources for our students:

  • £25 would buy one box of braille paper
  • £75 would buy one box of swell paper for tactile diagrams
  • £300 would buy one small braille display
  • £1,000 would pay for an unforgettable school trip for one student – skiing or sailing
  • £1,750 would buy a zoom ex scanner to convert printed pages to electronic pages
  • £4,000 would buy one portable braille notetaker

Leave a Gift in your will

Writing a Will allows you the opportunity to shape the future and think realistically about the things and people that are important in your life. This could well mean setting money or belongings aside to help family members or leaving a gift to support the work of a charity such as NCW.

A properly drafted Will is a legally binding document and avoids possible misunderstandings or disagreements. This means you will be remembered as you want to be.

Using a Wills and Probate solicitor is the easiest way to make a Will. If you choose to use a Will writer, rather than a solicitor, we recommend you use one who is a member of the Institute of Professional Will Writers (IPW).

There are several types of gift you could make:

Residuary gift – This is a gift of the remainder of your estate after all other payments have been made and cleared.

Pecuniary gift – This is a gift of a fixed sum of money.

Specific gift – A particular named item such as a piece of jewellery or a painting.

Contingent bequest – This depends upon the occurrence of an event which may or not happen. An example could be a gift to a charity which applies only if other beneficiaries named in the Will die before the person who made the Will.
