Make a regular donation
By setting up a regular gift, you will give us the financial security we need to plan and run more regular workshops, helping more people in more areas around the UK. The KPF Workshops that we currently facilitate cover sensitive key topics such as camouflage make-up, self confidence and self image.
A gift in your Will
We don’t like to think about Wills but making a Will is very important as it ensures that your estate is left to people and causes chosen by you. A gift in your Will to The Foundation will not only help us in the future but could also reduce any tax burden on your estate. Visit the HMRC website for more details.
There are three ways in which you can choose to leave a gift to the Foundation:
- Residuary gift – a percentage or share of your estate after all other expenses (including pecuniary or specific legacies) have been deducted
- Pecuniary legacy – a gift of a sum of money
- Specific legacy – a specific item (a piece of jewellery, an antique, shares or property)
If you wish to include the Foundation in your Will, we recommend contacting a local solicitor. Please remember to include our registered number: 1133313.
Give a major gift
The support we receive from major donors provides a significant contribution to the work we undertake. Your donations are crucial in further progressing the work we do for burns and scars survivors.

“The Katie Piper Foundation has helped me so much; I attended a workshop in August 2011 and what a great day and experience. Make up, hair styling, hand massages and more were provided by a great team of professionals. Many tears of happiness were shed by most people involved. I went home feeling how lucky I am to have been able to feel normal again. At the workshop I was explaining to Christopher the hair stylist the problems I had with my hair [or lack of it] he rushed me downstairs and showed me some client pictures of ladies who have had hair replacement treatments using an interlace system. At this stage, I should explain the Workshop was held at the Lucinda Ellery studios who provide this great treatment.
So after a consultation, and a day of having the system implemented I found myself with a full head of hair for the first time in 10 years, I cannot believe how much it has changed my life. I have so much more confidence and can wash & style as normal, but one of the best things for me when I go swimming [this is the only activity I can do to keep fit] is not worry about showing my bald patch! I used to wear a wide hair band to which I had a large collection in many different colours and wore one whilst swimming but no more.
I have had the great pleasure of meeting Katie a few times now and I am also getting involved with helping the staff at The Foundation and I would certainly recommend the hair treatment to anyone. The little things in life make a huge difference to someone with Burns and Scars when you think you have lost them forever.
Thank you x”
“Fantastic workshop – meeting other people and sharing past experiences makes you feel like you are not on your own. There was endless advice given on the day on a variety of topics from camouflage make-up and how to apply it to the benefits of massaging scars.
I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who suffers from burns or disfigurements.”
Gift Aid increases the value of donations to the Katie Piper Foundation by
allowing us to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift. If you pay higher rate
tax you can claim extra relief on your donations.
The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax.
Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the
donor. We take your donation – which is money you’ve already paid tax
on – and reclaim the basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on its ‘gross’ equivalent – the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.
Basic rate tax is 20 per cent, so this means that if you give £10 using Gift
Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to us.
If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim the difference between the higher
rate of tax 40 and/or 50 per cent and the basic rate of tax 20 per cent on
the total ‘gross’ value of your donation to the Foundation. You can make
this claim on your Self Assessment tax return, if you were sent one.
We now able to receive donations via text through our Foundation Just Giving Text Donation number. Just text TKPF12 space £(and amount) to 70070. Thank you for your support.
