Donate money

Help us to achieve our potential. At Proper Job we are always thinking of new ways to reduce landfill and conserve the world’s natural resources through various projects, however these projects often need extra funding. This means we are extremely happy to receive donations to help us to host these worthwhile events.

Alternatively, you could donate and help us develop the Proper Job yard. We currently trade out of semi-permanent structures which need constant repair and maintenance.
