Donation / Gift

Donation / Gift

A donation to A Little Lifetime Foundation will help us to continue to provide information, support and services to bereaved families. The charity constantly needs funds for its core work as well as for the development of new projects. If you decide to make a donation we will acknowledge it and if your donation is being made in memory of a baby/child/adult we also offer a ‘Gift Certificate’ for you to send or give to the bereaved family. This certificate records details of the baby/child/adult’s name and the parents/family/friend/person(s)/group/colleagues who have made the donation but not the amount given, this is acknowledged separately.

There are few ways to acknowledge a baby/child’s short life or that of a loved one, this is a lovely way to remember them and at the same time provide support for others facing similar sadness in the future. Each contribution no matter how small enables A Little Lifetime Foundation to continue what we do for families.

If you would like a Gift Certificate we will need:

  1. Details of baby/child/adult being remembered
  2. and the person(s) names you would like recorded (for giving the gift) on the certificate.

Please make sure to enclose these details if posting a donation or if you are making a donation on line there is facility to record details there.

Thanks for considering us worthy of your support. We promise to use your gift responsibly toward support and services for bereaved families and health care professionals working in this area of care.

Tax Relief on donations to any registered charity

For every donation in excess of €250 a Charity receives from a PAYE Tax Payer, the charity benefits from that donation but also it can also benefit from further funds from the Revenue Commissioners.

Corporate donations (Revenue Commissioners)

A Company donates £1,000 to an eligible charity. Assuming a corporation tax rate of 12.5%, relief to the company is £125, i.e. £1,000@12.5%. While the eligible charity or approved body has the benefit of £1,000, the cost to the company of making the donation is only £875 (£1,000 – £125). The company will simply claim a deduction for the donation as if it were a trading expense, there is no grossing up arrangement and therefore no repayment claim by the eligible charity or approved body arises.

Further Information:

You can obtain further information on the Donations Scheme from:

A Little Lifetime Foundation Christmas Cards

It’s that time of the Year again and if you’re interested in our card maybe you could order early as last year, if you remember, we ran out of supplies shortly after printing!!

We are also aware that there are many new families each year who buy the cards who have sadly had to deal with the death of their baby during the year.  It is a really difficult time and don’t forget where we are if you need support.

Sometimes we wonder about having cards at all as there are huge costs involved in printing and postage but parents say they like to be able to send an A Little Lifetime Foundation card, so we hope that this years choice will suit.

Cards can be ordered from our online shop, click here to view our Christmas Cards pack

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support in buying our Christmas cards each year and wish you and your family a very peaceful Christmas and very best wishes for the New Year

A Little Lifetime Foundation are always in need of funds!! The general running costs for all charities has increased enormously. The charity is run by volunteers but we need funds to continue the services we provide and develop new ways to provide information and offer support. Our literature is a life line for families and we need to ensure the publication and distribution of  – A Little Lifetime and our twice yearly Newsletters.

We also want to continue to provide Facilitators (who are volunteers but need to be trained and supervised) and venues for our Parent Support Meetings and offer support on the phone. We also hope to continue to develop links with Health care Professionals and interested others and provide updated publications like our Guidelines for Professionals.

You can help by:
Making a donation, buying Christmas cards and Memory Collection cards, participating in sporting events like – the mini marathon or organised events (sponsorship cards available from A Little Lifetime Foundation all year round). Some families also organise small fundraising events in their own area in memory of their baby. If you have any ideas for a fund raising event please let us know.

Register with A Little Lifetime Foundation to hold a Teddy Bears Picnic or Afternoon Tea and receive a free pack to help you organise the event.
