We have teamed up with easyfundraising, a popular website that offers sports clubs and supporters a way to raise money by shopping online.
Simply shop at your favourite retailer using easyfundraising and they will make a donation to us on your behalf. Best of all, you don’t pay anything extra – so far over £8 million has been raised for good causes in the UK. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Visit the easyfundraising website and select a shop, e.g. Amazon. You’ll then be taken to their website to browse and shop as usual. It’s completely free.
As a thank you for shopping with them, the retailer will donate money to your club via easyfundraising. This does not cost you anything extra, it really is free!
It’s simple. Gift Aid is a government initiative that allows donations given to charity to be tax effective. As soon as you give your permission by completing a Gift Aid declaration form, we can claim the tax back on your donation. This means that a £10 donation will be worth £12.50 and for every £50 gift, we will actually receive £62.50.
If you are a UK tax payer, yes. Even if you are not employed, you are still eligible if you are paying tax on any of the following:
According to HMRC rules, certain donations are not eligible for Gift Aid. If your donation falls into any of the following categories, Gift Aid shouldn’t be claimed:
If you pay tax at a rate of 40% or above, you can claim the difference between the higher and basic rate on your donation. Do this:
You may pay tax on a private pension plan or on a savings account. You may also pay capital gains tax on the sale of property or shares.
Not at all, completing a Gift Aid declaration does not commit you to any future donations, but any you may give will be covered by the declaration.
Please let us know if any of your circumstances change so that we can keep your record up to date on our systems.
Simply inform us that you are no longer a UK taxpayer, in writing or over the telephone, and we will stop reclaiming tax on your donations immediately.
