Giving financial support to our charity 


If you believe in our dream to change lives and transform our community in Newham, you can make regular or one off donations through our Local Giving page or cheques can be made out to 'Bonny Downs Community Association'. Gifts of any size are most gratefully received! Please add a comment to let us know if there’s a particular area of our work that you would like your donation to be put towards. 


If you would like to support our coronavirus response work, you can alternatively donate directly to the crowdfunding appeal that we have set up for this purpose. The money from this appeal will be allocated to our services which are supporting the community through this crisis.

Partner with us as a BDCA Buddy! 


BDCA receives very little funding from government and competition for grants is intense, so we really are more dependent than ever on the generosity of our community. That’s why we’ve launched BDCA Buddies, a regular giving partnership. Regular monthly giving is the most efficient way for our supporters to give to BDCA because it means we can direct your gift to the people who need it most every month!


Why becoming a BDCA Buddy is good for you:

  • Quick, secure set-up online with flexibility to amend your gift at any time.

  • Knowing your monthly gifts add up over time to help transform lives in Newham!

  • Access to a package of perks exclusive to BDCA Buddies: invitations to our VIP winter and summer events, 25% discount on hire of our facilities for your private event once a year, and a shout out in our annual report (or remain anonymous if you prefer).

Why BDCA Buddies are good for us:

  • The predictability of regular income is invaluable to a smaller charity like ours!

  • BDCA Buddies helps us plug any shortfalls because we can direct your gift to where it’s most needed each month.

  • Most grants we apply for are for specific projects, but BDCA Buddies help us cover our running costs and keep our doors open for those in need!

Your generosity will help people to continue benefiting services you’ve enjoyed for generations to come.
