Emmaus Oxford relies on your donations to help homeless people. Last year we spent £730,214 providing accommodation, employment and support to 38 homeless people. 

We help people like Shane to turn their lives around.

What we do works. But we need your help to do it. 

Leave a gift in your will

Leaving a gift to Emmaus Oxford in your will makes a huge difference to homeless people. After you have provided for those dearest to you, please consider leaving a donation to us. No matter what size that gift is, it will help homeless people in Oxford to find a better future. 

We strongly recommend that you visit a solicitor to make sure that your will represents your wishes clearly. In your will you can leave specific items, like paintings or jewellery, specific amounts of money or a percentage of the remainder of your estate. If you already have a will and want to amend it to leave a gift to Emmaus Oxford, you can complete a codicil form in front of two witnesses and ask your solicitor to keep it with your will. You can download a Emmaus Oxford Codicil here. 

Emmaus Oxford values every legacy we receive. We are signed up to the Fundraising Promise and we will respect your wishes at all times. You don't need to tell us that you have left us a legacy gift and we will use your donation as you ask us to. 

If you would like to find out more about leaving a gift in your will, please contact Hannah on 01865 402 073 or fundraising @emmausoxford.org   

Make a donation in memory of a loved one

The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences we can go through. If the person you have lost was committed to the work of Emmaus Oxford, or to helping disadvantaged people more broadly, you can celebrate their life by making an in memory donation. 

You can send a cheque to Emmaus Oxford, 171 Oxford Road, Oxford, OX4 2ES or contact us on 01865 402 073 or fundraising@emmausoxford.org . When you do, please let us know you that you are making your gift in someone's memory so we can pay our respects. 

Raise money by running an event

Taking part in or organising an event for Emmaus Oxford is an amazing way to raise funds for our work. For some ideas on how you can get involved please take a look at our Run an event leaflet or contact us on fundraising@emmausoxford.org 

If you already have a great fundraising idea, why not set up a Just Giving page and get going! We will be here to support you at every stage.
