A big gift makes a huge difference
Thank you for your interest in Practical Action.
Whether you’re making a personal donation or giving through a foundation, trust or company, your generous support will help people tackle some of the world’s toughest problems.
Why give a major gift?
By donating £5,000 or more, you’ll play a bigger part in shaping a world which works better for everyone.
That could be a multi-year commitment of unrestricted funding via our Big Change Network, or it could be a one-off donation to a specific area of our work that matches your own priorities and preferences.
In every case, your significant donation will mean we can plan further ahead and act quicker and more effectively to help people in poverty to change their world. It also gives you the chance to be more involved with Practical Action.
We build close, long-term relationships with the people who choose to support us with gifts of £5,000 or more and provide them with a truly personalised experience.
You’ll have a dedicated contact within our team who will act as your personal guide to Practical Action and the work you’re supporting.
We’ll talk to you about the difference you want to make and any particular interests you have that might influence how you’d like to direct your giving.
We’ll keep in touch with regular reports, impact stories and photos of our projects in action for you to share with colleagues, clients, customers, friends and family.

Fresh food and recipes to Pembrey and Burry Port Food Bank
Recent reports suggest those, that have to use food banks or on or below the poverty line are more prone to eating canned meats and dried goods without, the benefits of fresh food and vegetables that, contribute to ill health, an increased risk of Type 2 Diabetes and to Covid 19.
The Olive Trust wish to continue their good work in the community donating fresh fruit and vegetables weekly, to ensure healthier communities for all. We cannot continue this without considerable donations.
We are, also hoping to continue our Holocaust Memorial Days where, in 2020 we featured on S4C. For 2020 we are unable to have the community event we are used to due to Covid 19 and will be holding an online virtual Memorial. For this, we also would welcome any funding.
