There are lots of different ways to
support us, from joining as a Unicorn

As a charity, we raise £650,000 each year so that we can continue to produce high-quality and exciting theatre for and with young people that is accessible to all, regardless of circumstance or background. 

We offer 10% of our tickets free or heavily subsidised to ensure everyone is able to enjoy our shows and we need your support so we can continue to do this.

Becoming a member is a fantastic way to support these activities, whilst enjoying a range of benefits that’ll propel you into life behind the scenes of the Unicorn. 
Find out more about becoming a member here or donate online below.

Trust and Foundation Partnerships

The Unicorn has longstanding relationships with a broad range of trusts, foundations and charitable organisations. 

This support and investment not only helps us to produce high quality work on our stages but also enables us to run a programme of projects alongside it, with schools and community groups and for those who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend the theatre.

Corporate Support

Supporting the Unicorn through your business not only gives you access to some fantastic benefits, but enables us to introduce young people of all ages and backgrounds, to inspiring theatre experiences both on and off stage.

Unicorn Community Partnership

Payroll Giving

Donate to the Unicorn through Payroll Giving, a flexible scheme that allows any UK taxpayer to give regularly on a tax free basis. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax, so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p. When Payroll Giving is included as part of a company’s CSR initiative, such as Charity of the Year, Payroll Giving can provide a long-term legacy of giving. To boost the effect of their scheme, many employers choose to match their employees’ gifts. It is easy to set up Payroll Giving for your company, see HMRC’s website for further details.
If you are an employee, please speak to your employer if you would like to give via this tax-efficient scheme.

Legacies

Leaving a legacy is the most deeply personal gift anyone can make.  Remembering the Unicorn in your will is a wonderful way to share the enjoyment you have gained from the Unicorn with generations to come.  


Legacies provide vital support for all areas of the Unicorn’s work, from the high quality productions on stage, to our work in schools.  They can be easy to arrange and whatever the size of the donation we are always grateful and touched that you have chosen to remember the Unicorn in such an important way.  
You can include the Unicorn Theatre (Caryl Jenner Productions) in your Will by directing your gift to Caryl Jenner Productions, registered charity number 225751.  
Many people choose to leave a share of the residue of their estate. In this case, your professional adviser may find the following wording helpful:

‘I give all/a share of (please state fraction/percentage) the residue of our estate to Caryl Jenner Productions of 147 Tooley Street, London SE1 2HZ, Registered Charity Number 225751, to be applied for the general purposes of Caryl Jenner Productions, and I direct that the receipt of a proper officer for the time being of Caryl Jenner Productions shall be a complete discharge to our Executors.’  


If, however, you wish to make a straightforward gift of a fixed amount, set out below is suggested wording your professional adviser can use:

‘I give to Caryl Jenner Productions, Registered Charity Number 225751, to be applied for the general purposes of Caryl Jenner Productions, the sum of [amount in figures, amount in words] and I direct that the receipt of a proper officer for the time being of Caryl Jenner Productions shall be a complete discharge to our Executors.’  

If you choose to leave a gift for the Unicorn Theatre’s (Caryl Jenner Productions’) general purposes the Unicorn will use your gift where it is needed most.   We understand that you may have further questions or requests. You can contact us by telephone, by email or letter (details below). Alternatively, you would be very welcome to meet with us in person. Please bear in mind however, that this information is not intended to constitute legal advice and, when making your Will, you should do so in consultation with your independent professional adviser.
