Cornwall: Acts 435
Acts 435 is a revolutionary website that allows people to give money directly to others. 100% of what is donated via Acts 435 goes directly to those in need. If you GiftAid your donation, it helps towards the running costs of the charity.
When so many people need so much help, giving can sometimes feel hit and miss, and choosing between charities can be hard. Acts 435 puts people who can give in touch with people who are in need with the Church as the physical, face-to-face forum to enable virtual, online giving.
Acts 435 runs through a network of churches and charities that are recruited directly and through key partners like Christians Against Poverty and Trussell Trust. They appoint an Acts 435 representative, called the Advocate, who is trained by Acts 435 and then posts requests directly onto our website for people in their community who are in need.
100% of donor funds go directly to the person or people donors choose to support. All administration costs are covered by Gift Aid. Acts 435 provides direct giving and seeks to provide fast, financial help to the people in need. Advocates have an opportunity to send thank you messages to the donors who gave to the requests they posted, explaining how their gift made a difference to the beneficiary.
You can give to Acts 435 in other ways including Charities Aid Foundation and Stewardship (see right hand column of our Give Now page) but we encourage donors to visit our website and choose the requests they particularly want to support to provide the direct people-to-people giving that characterises our model.
