Become a Patron

As a Patron, your support may be acknowledged in the following ways:

Bespoke reports demonstrating the impact that your investments are making

Recognition in our Annual Report, website and other materials, if desired

Invitations to exclusive events

Invest in our communities now and for the future

In Kind Direct’s Patrons are a select group of like-minded individuals and organisations who understand and recognise the unique impact that In Kind Direct’s work has in communities.

Becoming a Patron is an opportunity to invest in our long-term ambition, building on the vision of our Royal Founding Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales.

Our Patrons’ generosity is absolutely core to what we do: they have been instrumental in helping us respond quickly and efficiently to the Covid-19 crisis and in helping us sustain and expand our service.

Without their support, our work would simply not be possible.

Levels of Patronage

Patronage starts at £10,000 of financial support per year.  There are three levels available: Patron, Diamond Patron and Investors Circle, reflecting the level of support provided to the charity and the resulting impact generated.

Recognising your support

We work with each of our Patrons to agree the scope of any recognition they would like to receive for the support they provide.

Corporate Patronage

Patronage of In Kind Direct is also available to companies, at the above levels. Companies can promote their status as patrons using dedicated materials available on request.
