Make a Donation in Memory

When someone who is very close to us dies, quite often we need to remember them in a long-lasting way. When you choose to remember a loved one by making a donation to Sexual Health West you are also supporting the work we do.

Leaving a Legacy

One way of ensuring that we can continue to give valuable support to those who are HIV positive is by having the funds to provide the services needed on an ongoing basis. Remembering us in your will ensures that our work can continue while the spirit of your generosity lives on.

If you want further information on making a donation in memory of a loved one or leaving a gift in your will, please contact our CEO Joe McDonagh, Sexual Health West, Ozanam House, St.Augustine St Galway. Tel. 00353 91 566266 or e:joemcd@sexualhealthwest.ie

Volunteer your Time

For our major events throughout the year, especially Irish AIDS Day or World AIDS Day, we always need an extra pair of hands to make red ribbons, hand out candles or make the tea. If you are in a position to volunteer some of your spare time for these occasions we would be delighted to hear from you.

Organise a Fundraiser

Whether you are good at making cupcakes, playing golf or bungee-jumping why don’t you turn your passion into much-needed funds for Sexual Health West.

Choose us as your designated charity for the marathon, sponsored cycle or coffee morning. We would really appreciate the support.

Schools and Colleges

Help raise awareness around the stigma and discrimination of HIV among your teachers/ lecturers and peers and fundraise at the same time.

Be Creative

If you are full of creative ideas for ways of fundraising, why not share them with us.

We’d love to hear from you.
