Support our #Letsmakecompassionmatter Christmas Campaign

Our 2020 Christmas Campaign is now LIVE – please support us to give children the tools they need to build a more compassionate, less anxious future.


Compassion Matters is offered to any school, for free. We believe that every child, whatever their background, needs these tools. The course is funded entirely by generous donations from individuals and trusts and is underpinned by research from the Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion.

“I’m trying to act kinder to others than I was before.” – Year 5 pupil, CM graduate

Please consider making a donation to help more children learn the power of compassion.


Make a one-off gift or regular gift:

  • Please complete the donation form to send a cheque or pay by card, or give online via Givey.
  • Cheques made payable to The Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion (our overarching charity) can be sent to: Compassion Matters, 33 St Giles, Oxford, OX1 3LD, UK.
