Regular Monthly Donations

Regular monthly donations are extremely important to the Good Shepherd and help make a really big difference to the lives of those living in financially poverty and isolation. By choosing to give a regular monthly donation, you will be helping us to plan ahead with our finances. A regular gift allows us to have the confidence that day in day out, we will have a steady income stream that we can rely upon.
