Transom Trust is launching our “50-50 Fund” – to encourage up to 50 individuals to give monthly or regular small amounts to the Trust via on-line payments and the use of gift-aid. For details of how to join this Fund, please e-mail us on email@example.com.
Homelessness is such a complex area to address as the causes are so diverse – adverse child experiences, addiction, mental health, poor decisions etc. Anyone wanting to play a part in tackling homelessness in any meaningful way can seem daunted by the challenge, or not know where to start. We need to raise funds to continue and develop our work to provide supported housing for ex-rough sleepers, and play our part in addressing the challenging issue of homelessness. It is a privilege to give our residents a safe home, and the hope and opportunity to lead a more fulfilling life via independent living.
The majority of our income pays the rent on the flats to our national partners – Green Pastures – who buy the properties which we lease and manage. This means that we need to secure additional income to: run the Trust on a daily basis, including the work of our project manager; match monies raised via grants; continue to fulfil the Trust’s vision to add new properties; and maintain our current flats to a high standard.
For management and transparency purposes, donations to the “50-50 Fund” will be put into a Transom Trust bank account that is separate from our current operations account. This will enable you to play your part in tackling homelessness in a specific and tangible way through the ongoing and developing work of Transom Trust. You will have the assurance that your donations will be: managed well; used on the activities listed above; and will give our residents the hope and opportunity to lead a more fulfilling life. Thank you.
