Your Donations Explained.

Your Donations Explained.

Suicide Prevention & Intervention IOW (SPIIOW) is a completely independent Isle of Wight based charity, and whilst we work with other charitable organisations like ours across the country we remain independent.

We fundraise ourselves and spend the money we raise locally according the needs of our community.
We wanted to let you know how your donations to us are spent and assure you that we are using your money in the best possible way.

How we use your donations
We spend around 100% of our income on our charitable aims. This means that for every pound donated, it is used to ensure that the charity runs effectively, efficiently and responsibly. It also helps us to fundraise the next pound, and the next, so that we can keep supporting the growing number of people who need our help.

How we raise money
To-date we have no paid fundraisers, or staff so it’s the trustees who work hard to make sure we have enough money to run our vital services in the area. We rely on funding from various sources, trusts and foundations, local businesses and the local community.
Whether somebody runs a marathon for us, if we are left a gift in a will or given a donation at Christmas, we always make sure that the donation is used in the best way possible and that it has an impact on the lives of the people we help.
