Img Visual Fundraising for the Legion

Philanthropy

HSBC-chequeThe Royal British Legion is extremely grateful for the wonderfully generous support we receive from individuals making significant donations, and for all the contributions from charitable grant-making trusts. 

This help is vital in allowing us to continue to meet the needs of Service men and women and their families. These donations allow us to plan for the future with confidence, ensuring we can carry on helping those in the Armed Forces community to Live On.

Major gifts can be spread over a number of years, providing essential funding now and in the future, and all gifts from UK taxpayers can be made tax-efficiently.

Current projects

The benefits of major gifts and charitable trusts lasts a lifetime and provides the support that our Armed Service family desperately needs.

Some of the worthwhile projects that have been funded by generous donations include:

  • Personnel Recovery Centres - The Legion working with the MOD and Help for Heroes in funding Personnel Recovery Centres in the UK and Germany, where injured Service personnel can get the help and care they need to get back to their best.
  • The Battle Back Centre - The Battle Back Centre officially opened in autumn 2012 is a national centre of excellence for adaptive sport and adventurous training to help Service personnel recover and either return to duty or reskill and make a successful transition to civilian life.
  • The Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies - This centre is the first collaboration of its kind in the UK, where civilian engineers and scientists work alongside military doctors to reduce the effects of roadside bombs or Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).
  • Poppy Care Homes - Our six homes vary in size from 47 bedrooms to 76 bedrooms. Each is a safe, well-equipped environment, which is intended to be a real home, somewhere that our residents can feel comfortable, for however long they stay.
