Donaldson's is Scotland's national school for pupils who are deaf or have communication difficulties.
"Donations paid for a till for our Life Skills Cafe. It's great and means it's like a real cafe where we can learn how to use and work with money."
With your help Donaldson's can provide even more facilities and services for its pupils and their families. As a charity, we continually raise funds for specific projects and new facilities through events, sponsorship activity and applications to trusts.
Over the past few years, donations have helped us to run the very successful Transitions Project, build and maintain a sensory garden and also the purchase of 3 new mini buses. Last year we also managed to buy a range of specialised communication aids for our pupils, which included updated radio aid systems and transmitters, hearing aid test kids and iPads with software for pupils with speech and language difficulties.
Giving a donation to Donaldson's couldn't be easier, we accept donations online via Virgin Money Giving Fundraising Page or via Text Message, all you have to do is text DONS36 and the amount (e.g. DONS36 £10) to 70070.
We also hold a full programme of fundraising events each year including; a fashion show, seasonal shopping evenings, a summer fayre and corporate golf day to name but a few. And we encourage people to participate in sponsored events in aid of Donaldson's and we are able to provide sponsor forms if you need them.
You might also consider leaving a legacy to Donaldson's which could provide support in the longer term.
