Leaving a Gift in your Will

As a charity, we rely heavily on voluntary donations.

Your kindness and generosity will help us to enhance and promote the well-being of so many more adults who have been separated or estranged from family by adoption, the care system, or other circumstances.



Corporate Partnerships

Your support is vital to us and an important part of our income generation strategy.

Introduce or develop your own corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy and extend your support in the community.

Donating a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of a certain product or service to our charity is a great way to raise vital funds, whilst promoting your product and raising awareness of your brand.


Clothing Donations

We would love to give your pre-loved items and unwanted gifts a new home.

Fundraise for Us

Organise your own event. From traditional fundraising events like quizzes, cake bakes and golf days to something a bit different like open mic nights, yoga days, or art exhibitions, organise an event for your friends, family, colleagues or the general public to attend. 

Facebook Birthday Fundraising is a great way to make your birthday extra special. Use Facebook’s built in fundraising tool to encourage friends and family to support Birthlink.


Consider us in your Will

“How can a gift in your Will help us to transform lives?

Your legacy will help us deliver services to people affected by adoption, to continue to manage the Adoption Contact Register for Scotland and to develop learning and advice to professionals.

Any gift you can make, big or small, will make a lasting difference to those who benefit from our service.  Before you make any decisions, we strongly recommend that you consult a solicitor. If you do decide to leave a gift in your Will to Birthlink, we promise to respect your wishes fully.  We recognise this is a big decision. If you would like more information, or wish to discuss leaving a legacy to Birthlink, please contact Abbi Jackson at: or call 0131 225 6441.
