Give As You Earn
If you earn a salary, or if your pension is paid via PAYE, it’s easy to make a donation to the Ménière’s Society. With Give As You Earn you can donate directly from your pre-tax salary, so the money that would normally go to the taxman goes to charity instead. All you have to do is decide how much you want to give each month and your donation will come out of your pay packet before the tax man touches it! You don’t pay any tax on the donations you make, so you can pass the tax relief onto the charity.
To join Give As You Earn your employer will need to be participating in the scheme. Talk to your payroll department or contact the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) on 01732 520000 for more information.
Charity of the Year
If your organisation, school or club has a ‘charity of the year’ or nominated charity, why not suggest the Ménière’s Society? As well as helping us to raise funds, it’s also a great way to help increase awareness of vestibular disorders. We can send copies of our leaflets and posters to provide further information.

Donations in lieu of a gifts
If you’re celebrating a birthday or anniversary, or even getting married, and your family and friends are still insisting they’d like to give you a present even though you’ve asked them not to, why not suggest they send a donation to the Ménière’s Society in lieu of a gift. All you need to do is tell your family and friends about us and, if you don’t want to collect the donations yourself, ask them to send their cheque (made payable to Ménière’s Society) direct to us or call us on 01306 876883 to pay over the phone. Payments can also be made via Justgiving (external website). We acknowledge all gifts we receive (providing the sender includes their address details).
