There are several ways in which you can donate to COCO:
- Regular Giving
- Text COCO to 70085 to donate £10
- Bank transfer
- Send a cheque
- Donate via an online platform
- Donate through Facebook Fundraising
- Use Amazon Smile if shopping on Amazon
- Sign up to Easy Fundraising
- Download the Sustainably app to convert your change into donations

Our monthly donors are crucial to COCO and the communities we work with overseas, knowing that we have a secure income each month allows us to plan for the future and spend the money whenever, wherever it is most needed. A direct debit donation to COCO can be anything from as little as £2.00 a month to £200.00, and beyond!
Our preferred method of regular support is by setting up a monthly or quarterly gift on our Enthuse platform. You can also use Enthuse to support our work with a one-off donation by selecting 'one off' from the drop-down menu. Monthly giving and one-off donations are also possible via Virgin Money Giving, although this incurs some fees to COCO unless you choose to cover the fee yourself during the donation process.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to set up a monthly standing order with your bank then please email [email protected] to request our bank information to do this.
If you are unable to set up a Standing Order or give online and would like to set up a Direct Debit instead, please just fill out this online form or download the COCO Direct Debit Mandate and return it by email to [email protected] or post it to our office address.
Text COCO to 70085
Text COCO to 70085 to donate £10. This costs £10 plus a standard rate message. Alternatively, you can opt to give any whole amount up to £20 by adding a number - please see below.

|COCO 4||£4 one-off|
|COCO 5||£5 one-off|

Make a bank transfer
Transferring directly into our bank account means that we don't incur any extra fees, and the funds are received quickly and safely. It is therefore the most efficient way to send a one-off donation.
Email [email protected] to ask for our bank details.
Send a cheque
As a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, COCO has taken the decision to close our main office and all staff are now working from home. However we do still have a c/o address in Newcastle upon Tyne, so if you are happy to send a cheque in the post we will receive it - just not as quickly as we used to! Please call 0191 261 7427 for more information.
You can find us on Enthuse and Virgin Money Giving, through which you can donate online to COCO or set up your own fundraising page and share the link far and wide - perfect if you are doing a COCO challenge!
