The PBC Foundation is the only UK based organisation that specifically deals with PBC.
Other ways to give
Donate By Cash or Cheque
Please make all cheques out to: The PBC Foundation
Our postal address is:
The PBC Foundation (UK) Ltd
2 York Place
We can reclaim the tax on any donations you make. If you are a UK taxpayer you can help us to increase your donation by downloading, printing and completing a Gift Aid form, which you can get at the link below;
Set up a Standing Order
A great way to support the Foundation is to set up a standing order for a modest monthly contribution. If everyone who subscribes to our services donated the equivalent of a take away sandwich each month, we'd be able to go forward on a platform of total financial stability.

Remember Us in Your Will
Although over one third of the UK population claims that they will leave a gift to charity in their will, only 7% do. Donations left in our supporters’ wills are absolutely crucial: with them, we can ensure our future. Here’s how you can ensure our continued support to those affected by PBC for many years to come:
Consult a solicitor, who can help you to write a will, or to make a short amendment to an existing will known as a codicil
A codicil mentions the type of gift (e.g. money, property), and the full name of our charity, ‘PBC Foundation UK Ltd’
Alternatively, have you thought about leaving a legacy during your lifetime, so you can see the impact your donation will have on the lives of PBC sufferers?
Remember, legacies are exempt from inheritance tax, so leaving one may also help you to reduce the amount of tax payable on your estate, after you are gone

- Could your school or college hold a fundraising event, such as a dress down day or fete? Alternatively, are you or is anyone you know a university student? If so, have you thought about recommending us to your university's Raising and Giving (RAG) society?
- Get your club or special interest group involved
- Are you or is anyone you know a member of the Masons, the Women's Institute, the Soroptimists, an amateur sports club, or any other special interest group? If so, have you considered asking them if they give to charity, and recommending us for a donation?
- Get local businesses involved
- Did you know there are plenty of businesses that give to charity following customer recommendations? Waitrose and Asda, for example, both have community led charity programmes. The next time you go shopping, go to your bank, or pay your bills, nominate us for a donation, if you can.
We are five times more likely to be supported by organisations if we have a personal link to them, so please ask your friends, relatives, and anyone else within your network if they or anyone they know is involved with an organisation that gives to charity. For more information, please contact our Grants Officer.
