Number of Lives saved this year
There are a number of ways to bank your donation with us:
1. By credit card through BT MyDonate
This is a free donations service. It provides similar services to Virgin Money Giving and JustGiving (see 2 and 3, below). It can also be used for setting up sponsorship pages. Gift Aid is added where appropriate. While all our fundraising goes to the RNLI, for all on-line giving, your credit card transaction should be made through The Fund’s website and not through the RNLI’s, since the RNLI will not be able to trace those funds to identify the total contributed by our charity – and we like to know how much our supporters have donated each year! Visit our BT MyDonate page
2. By credit card through Virgin Money Giving
A small commission is charged by Virgin Money Giving on donations. Gift Aid is added where appropriate. Visit our Virgin Money Giving page
3. By credit card through JustGiving
A commission charge is levied by JustGiving on donations. Gift Aid is added where appropriate. Visit our JustGiving page
4. By depositing the money into your nearest HSBC bank

Cheques and cash can be paid in this way. Please notify your business fundraiser who will ensure the funds are captured against their targets. Also email Angela or Sam at LifeboatFund@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk with the amount you've raised, your Department and where you have paid in.
If your deposit is from a collection, please let us know so we can claim Gift Aid.
You can also pay money into any Post Office via Transcash.
5. If you don't work for a government department
If you don't work for a government department, but would still like to make a donation, you can deposit funds into any branch of HSBC (using our account details above) or into any Post office via Transcash. If you wish to claim gift aid, please let us know by emailing LifeboatFund@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk and we can sort it out. If you wish to pay funds by cheque, please make it payable to The Lifeboat Fund and deposit into your local HSBC into our account (as above) or into your local Post Office. Do send an email to let us know your donation is on its way.
