Fundraise for us

We have lots of ideas to get you started - from family-friendly to physical.

Donate to support Age International

Our work relies on monthly donations. Today, 100 million older people struggle to survive on less than 60p a day. A monthly gift from you could help someone to live with dignity.

How we spend our funding 

The majority of our funding is spent on long-term development projects, emergency relief and disaster risk reduction work. 

For every £1 we spend:

  • 70p is spent on long-term development projects
  • 20p is spent on emergency relief and disaster risks reduction work
  • 8p is spent on support costs
  • 2p is spent on influencing, advocacy & communications
