What is face to face fundraising?

Face-to-face fundraising is one of the most cost-effective ways for us to raise funds in support of our work.

Our professional fundraisers visit people at their homes in selected areas across London. They ask people to support us with a monthly gift via direct debit.

Regular giving is immensely important to Mayhew. It enables us to continue our work in the long-term. We don’t receive any government funding and rely solely on the generosity and kindness of our donors. Our services are offered free of charge.

Please read more information and answers to most frequently asked questions below.
