When you donate to the RNLI, you're helping volunteers like me to launch to the rescue. Thank you for being a lifesaver.
Every donation helps save lives
A donation to the RNLI makes you a lifesaver. We couldn’t train our lifeboat crews and lifeguards, provide them with lifesaving equipment, or support them operationally without the kindness of supporters like you.
There are so many ways you can give money to RNLI lifesavers. Every donation, no matter the size, will help lifeboat crews and lifeguards answer the call to rescue. Thank you for being a lifesaver.
Your donation will save lives in so many ways. In 2022, for every £1/€1 spent on charitable activities, 57p/57c was on lifeboats, property and equipment; 26p/26c on running the lifeboat service; 11p/11c on lifeguard rescue; 4p/4c on safety, education and awareness; and 2p/2c on international drowning prevention.
