Ways to donate for FREE

Use Amazon Smile and you could donate to YLF at no extra cost to you!

Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to YLF. All you have to do is head to search for ‘The Young Lives Foundation’ and tick ‘Yes’. Then shop as normal!

If you have a Co-op Membership you can support YLF for free! Every time members buy selected Co-op branded products and services, 2p for every pound spent is rewarded to them and Co-op will give the same to local causes – such as YLF! Find out more.

As part of our partnership with EMR Rochester, based in Medway City Estate, and their new recycling scheme, any scrap metal that is donated in the name of YLF will result in a donation being made to support our services.
