Whilst the VCC receives some funding from the Ministry of Defence, and is a big supporter of the Volunteer Cadet Corps, by way of a capitation grant the vast majority of our training and activities expenses are met by our own funds. We try to minimise the financial burden on cadets and their families as much as possible so we not only raise our own funds by participating in activities but also encourage support from our local communities and wider afield.
If you appreciate the values and aims of the VCC, with the platform we offer our Cadets around the Royal Navy and Royal Marines ethos and would like to support us, there are a number of ways in which you could help. Whichever way you support the VCC, our cadets and staff will be very appreciative, and you’ll have the added benefit of knowing that you are making a positive contribution to the development of some wonderful young people.
Some of the ways in which you can help are:
Shop Online and Donate
You could simply make a one off donation by cheque. If so, please send your cheque (made payable to ‘Volunteer Cadet Corps’) to Fundraising and Charity Officer, HQ Volunteer Cadet Corps, 158 Building, HMS Excellent, Portsmouth, PO2 8ER. Please include your name and address so we can write back and thank you.
If you would like to make a regular contribution you can set up a standing order. Just contact our Fundraising and Charity Officer at Headquarters VCC and we can provide all the details you need.
Making a lasting difference to our young people could be achieved by leaving a gift in your will. Any amount, no matter how small or big, can be put to good use by helping our cadets develop their potential. If you would like to leave a gift in your will please contact us for a further no obligation discussion. You may also like to visit Remember a Charity for further guidance about leaving a legacy gift.
We also benefit from gifts from several benefactor charity partners such as the Connaught Trust. We are hugely grateful to our charity partners for their grants, all of which are put to good use in providing challenging and exciting activities for our cadets. If your organisation is looking to make a one off or occasional grant to a youth charity then why not consider the VCC. Just contact us for further information.
