Pay in your fundraising

Thank you!

From mother-themed quizzes, buggy walks, park walks, fundraising balls, bake offs, lunches, shows, and a gala performance of the musical Once... thousands of people up and down the country have got involved to help mums around the world lift their lives out of poverty. Whether you organised an event, took part in an event, donated goods to an Oxfam store, or made a donation, it will have a huge impact on mothers, their families and local communities.

With the UK Government doubling your fundraising, we'll be able to lift the lives of twice as many mums around the world - just remember to pay in any fundraising by 31 May for it to be eligible for the Government's matched funding.

Paying in your money

There are three easy ways to pay in the money you've raised:

1. Pay in online.

2. Download a paying-in form (PDF, 82KB), fill it in and post it along with a cheque (don't forget to complete a Gift Aid form (PDF, 240KB), if appropriate, and make your fundraising go even further.

3. Call 0300 200 1285 and pay in your fundraising using your credit card. Remember to say that you held an event for the Mother Appeal. And if you've not had a chance to raise any money but still want to donate to Oxfam's Mother Appeal, then you can still make a donation online.

The difference you've made

Your fundraising will enable Oxfam to continue to help women living in poverty around the world and put in place programmes to allow them to change not only their own lives but those of their families and the communities in which they live.

In supporting our Mother Appeal, you'll help lift the lives of mums like Joygun, who's featured in the video here. Thanks to your support, Joygun can now feed her children nutritious food, send them to school, and keep them safe each time the waters return to her flood-prone community.
