BuDS is an independent charity and doesn’t receive any money from the Government or local councils. We rely on grants and donations. Please give what you can to support our fantastic work to defend and support disabled people in Buckinghamshire and beyond.
BuDS deliberately keeps its costs low by primarily relying on volunteers, most of them disabled people, and the old fashioned charity model of ‘begging and borrowing’. All our IT network is donated, for example, and we get our software free from Microsoft. BuDS core costs are only around £30 per day, so anything you can donate will make a real difference. There’s no waste and fat cats at BuDS!
You can donate money to support us in many ways including:
- Online Shopping through AmazonSmile and Give as you Live
- Online Donations: Golden Giving and PayPal
- Monthly recurring donations: Golden Giving
- Donate in Kind
If you don’t want to set up an account then please bookmark http://www.everyclick.com/buds and start all shopping from there. We still get the money, but won’t always know who to thank.
You can also help us by giving through Amazon Smile. Simply enter ‘Buckinghamshire Disability Service’ in the search box, and select us as your chosen Amazon charity. Then every time you shop, we’ll get much needed funds at no cost to you!
For those not able to use the above options, we also accept donations by PayPal. PayPal levy a charge for donations of 1.4% + £0.20 for every donation.

Monthly recurring donations
Please note that BuDS will never approach you with the aim of getting a regular payment setup.
If you are approached by someone pretending to be from BuDS please let our treasurer email@example.com know as soon as possible
Donations in Kind
- Our office equipment including computers are all donated
- Auditing of our accounts
- Free or Discounted licenses for software
If you are interested in helping out in your spare time please have a look at our volunteering page.
We really appreciate any donations. Without your kindness we wouldn’t be able to continue our purpose of helping disabled people of Buckinghamshire and building a Fair4All world.
If you can think of a new way we could accept donations or raise money then please contact our treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
