The Open Door Charity is dependent on the support of its local community. Every donation made to the Charity helps us to make a huge difference to the lives of homeless people in St Albans.
As part of your Corporate Social Responsibility policies we believe that Open Door offers the opportunity for your organisation to be connected to a well-known local charity serving the most vulnerable people. Supporting grant-aided projects or funding staff costs are all ways that you can show commitment to the local community.
Places of Worship
Local churches were instrumental in setting up the Open Door Charity and we continue to welcome the support of religious groups. Your donations and spiritual support really make a difference to some of the most disadvantaged people in our community.
Our local schools are particularly supportive in fund-raising for the St Albans Sleepout. We are keen to develop links with local schools and develop information packs that enable students to gain a better understanding of the issues that drive homelessness.
Making a regular donation
People and organisations who choose to give a donation to the Charity on a regular basis are very important as it allows us to have guaranteed income and enables us to plan our spending with certainty. We encourage you to do this by direct debit and where possible to gift aid your donation. The Charity's contact details are here.
