Like all NHS Trusts, Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust works hard to supplement its NHS budget through charitable means. We know that with your support we can fund the things we need to ensure top quality care to the population in the hospitals catchment area. Please support your hospital in either of the following ways:
You can donate by clicking on any of the button above: if your donation is for a special appeal or event please mention this in the message box on the form. You may, of course, prefer to leave it up to our Charity Management Board to decide where your donation should be spent.
Text your donation
Simply select a code below of the fund you would like your donation to go to, then enter the amount you would like to donate eg £1 / £2 / £3 / £4 / £5 / £10.

Many families chose to remember the loss of a loved one by requesting donations to the Hospital in lieu of flowers. Please remember to include your name and address and the name of the person who is being remembered. A Tribute Fund can be set up in memory of someone dear to benefit your chosen ward/department/special appeals or our General Charity Fund – if you would like to discuss this further please contact 01322 428256. If you would like to set a memory fund online please click on the "create a memory button" above.
A tribute fund
A fund can also be set up for any special occasion, birthday, anniversary or to celebrate a birth of a baby.
If you are a UK tax payer, at no cost to you, we are able to recover a further 28p for every £1 you donate. We will automatically send you a form to ask if we may collect Gift Aid but please ignore if this does not apply to you.
Giving directly from your pay is another way and will save you money – just ask your employer if they are registered, we can then provide you with the details.
