Frequently asked questions
Where does the fundraising money go?
You can choose which part of Royal Rehab your donations can go towards. Each unit has their own fundraising funds which are allocated to clients in that area of Royal Rehab.
As we are made aware of someone who is in need of further support, applications are made to the foundation and grants are made to those in order of those most in need. Please check out the Royal Rehab Foundation Grants to understand more about this process.
Royal Rehab does not fund equipment or salaries—simply supporting those most in need through grants of equipment, services or experiences.
Can I use the Royal Rehab logo?
Because Royal Rehab is our brand, we need to see all versions of our logo in use before we approve anything. Please contact us to discuss Royal Rehab logo use.
What is an authority to fundraise?
An authority to fundraise is where Royal Rehab authorises someone to fundraising on behalf of Royal Rehab. This is a legal requirement and is completed as part of the online fundraising process within the Funraisin’ platform. For someone wanting to fundraise ‘offline’ then an application needs to be made via the contact form.
An authority is made for a specific period of time and for specific reasons.
An authority to fundraise letter can be provided that will show proof that your fundraising activity is authorised by Royal Rehab.

How do my donors get their tax receipts?
