Regular donations are fantastic! They really help us to plan, and they save on administration costs. SEED was founded on regular donations, and they remain vital to our ongoing community development work in Zimbabwe. You can make a regular donation online or by post. Please see 'Ways to give' below.
One-off donations are always gratefully received! Whether it's £10 or £1,000 you can rest assured we will strive to ensure that your gift makes the best possible difference to communities in Zimbabwe.
Ways to give
To make a regular donation by standing order, or a one-off gift by cheque, please download SEED's donation form. This will give you the opportunity to register for Gift Aid, sign up for news updates, and let us know who you are so we can thank you.
Online / telephone banking
You can set up a standing order (for regular donations) or make one-off donations to SEED via your own bank's internet or telephone banking service. You'll need our bank account details (below - scroll down a bit). When you've made a donation in this way please let us know, so that we can thank you, ask you about Gift Aid, check it arrives in our account, and keep you updated about developments in Zimbabwe.
Online donations, via Virgin Money Giving
Visit our page on the Virgin Money Giving website to make a secure donation to SEED using your credit or debit card. You can choose to make either a monthly or a one-off donation by selecting the appropriate tab. VMG will collect Gift Aid on our behalf (if you are eligible) and send your donation (and Gift Aid, if applicable) straight into our bank account.
Please note:We always try to thank our donors within a week of receiving word of a donation. If you haven't heard from us, we probably don't yet know about it. To help us watch out for your gift, let us know when you make a donation!
The Big Give Christmas Challenge is an annual opportunity for your donation to be doubled. It starts on Giving Tuesday at the end of November and runs for 7 days. Please donate here.
Out and about
You can pay a cheque (payable to 'The SEED Project') or cash into our account at any branch of Barclays Bank, or at any Post Office. You will need our bank account details (below).

How will my donation be used?
Your donation will certainly be used towards achieving the goals in our mission statement. As you would expect, SEED works very closely with local communities in Southern Africa to ensure that the help we give matches their actual needs. When donors give to support a particular campaign, we always seek to respect their wishes but, on occasion, donors' gifts may be used for other campaign projects. In this way, you can be certain that your donation is used in the most effective way possible. To find out more about our funding - where it comes from and how it is used - please visit our Funding page.
