family account

A Stewardship family giving account invites you and your child or grandchild to experience charitable giving together - from as young as you decide, until your child is old enough to have a fully-fledged giving account of their own.

Open a family account


How it works:

A family account works in a similar way to a bank account. You can make gifts into your family account and then, whenever you and your child want to support a charitable cause, you can sit down together to request a donation from your account.

Credit your family account using credit or debit card, Direct Debit or cheque.

Children under 13 years

As a parent of a child under 13 years of age, we will set up an account in the names of you and your child. You will remain the primary account holder and will be provided with login details so that you can view the account, and request donations, with your child.

Children between 13-18 years

At this stage, an account is set up in your name, but the primary contact can be your child. Your child can have access to their own login details as the primary user of the account. Your child can, at this stage, request donations on their own or with you, depending on your joint preference.

Over 18 years

Once your child reaches 18 years, the account is upgraded to an individual giving account in their own name. If they are earning, they may wish to top up the account themselves, although you are still able to add funds if you wish.

Just 3% of any gifts made into accounts go to help pay the bills but we’re a charity too, so there are no profits at the end of the year. Anything left goes straight back into supporting charitable projects.
