Major donors and sponsors
Easy Read Information
This page explains how we can help people or organisations that want to give a lot of money towards the Royal Hospital.
R Charity invites people who are considering making a substantial donation to talk to us so we can help them to identify what they wish to achieve, and agree what their gifts will be used for.
Our senior fundraiser Kate Mylchreest would be delighted to start this conversation with you. Please call 0151 706 3153 or email the team here and we’ll be delighted to discuss your support and introduce you to the clinical leaders of the area you choose to support.
Major donations can come in a number of forms, including –
- -One-off gifts, for an agreed specific purpose
- -Regular gifts (perhaps eg a sum given in 4 parts over 4 years), again for an agreed specific purpose
- -Gifts-in-kind – of goods or services which we would normally buy as a Trust, which enables us to divert this committed money to R Charity Appeal
- -Legacies – gifts planned in your will for when you die. The unusual truth is that people can afford to be at their most generous when they are no longer with us, through a charitable legacy. Please visit our will information page for more information about leaving a gift in your will
- -Major gifts from companies
Leave a lasting memory with your gift
In the new Royal we have many opportunities to thank major donors, through Naming and Acknowledgment Rights. This could be your name on a list of supporters in our main reception, through to having your name as part of a clinic, ward or department in the new Royal, right down to being acknowledged as a supporter of an individual in-patient bedroom.
And of course we don’t want our relationship to end with a donation. You will be invited to future events at the Royal as our guest, including to our new Royal opening ceremony, plus reports into the future from us on how your gifts are making a long-term difference. (Of course, if you wish for your gift to be anonymous or not followed up with future contact, we will understand and respect this too)
Ask an expert
As well as discussing your gift with the appropriate Consultants and Nurses here, we’d recommend that you take detailed advice on how to make your donations as tax-efficient as possible – this can of course allow you to be even more generous. If you don’t have your own financial and legal experts already to advise you, we have experienced experts supporting R Charity who are willing to advise you and execute your decisions on a pro bono basis. Please let us know if you’d like to take advantage of this support.
If you have any questions, please email the Fundraising Team here or phone us on 0151 706 3153.
R Charity : a registered charity

Registration with the Charity Commission means we must maintain clear accounting records and prepare annual accounts. We must also prepare a trustees’ annual report to accompany our accounts.
