Donate to celebrate

Making a donation in celebration of a wedding, birthday or anniversary is a wonderful way to create better chances for the UK’s most vulnerable children.

If you’re looking for a different and special way to mark a celebration, something that brings you satisfaction instead of stuff, why not donate to celebrate?


Many of us today are fortunate not to need or want gifts when we celebrate an event – yet our friends and family often want to show us they care. You can spread the joy of your celebration in a meaningful and lasting way by giving the gift of better life chances for children.

“Adoption is particularly close to our hearts and we were impressed to find out how Coram today brings adoptive parents together with children who need them. We have all we need for our new life together and our donation brings us genuine satisfaction.”
Eleni and Udoka, who donated to celebrate their wedding

Eleni and Udoka found out about Coram through a visit to the Foundling Museum, which tells the story of our work since 1739. While browsing the displays, Udoka discovered that the composer George Frideric Handel, born close to Udoka’s birthplace, had been an early supporter of our work and had helped to raise significant funds for the charity. This personal connection led the couple to explore supporting our work. When they got married, Eleni and Udoka gave half of their monetary gifts to support our work.
