Gift-Aid Your Donations
If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift-Aid can increase the value of your donations online and at classes by 25%. So if you give a £10 donation at a class we can claim an extra £2.50, making your donation worth £12.50.
We can claim this so long as you have paid at least the £2.50 as tax within the tax year. If you attended one class a week on average and gave £10 each time, over the course of the year we would be able to claim an additional £130 on your donations.
Why this makes a BIG difference to us
We are small non-profit charitable organisation. All our teachers and team members volunteer their time freely and we operate on a low amount of income, which covers the basic costs of room rental and refreshments.
However we would like put on more events and activities, such as more courses and retreats, as well as take our meditation classes out to more people in the community.
100% of your donations go towards helping us to directly maintain and grow our activities as well as introduce more people to Meditation and Buddhism. So by signing up to Gift-Aid you are contributing directly to helping the Sangha grow, at no extra cost to you.
2 steps to Gift-Aid your donations
Firstly, complete the registration form below, this registers your donations as eligible for Gift-Aid.
Then, each time you make a donation at a class, write your name and amount on the donation sheet provided, next to the donation bowl. Online donations are automatically recorded and can be easily matched.
We then request and collect the Gift-Aid all on your donations from HMRC at the end of the year, and put it to use developing our community.
If you no longer want to Gift-Aid your donations, or you stop paying tax, then just let us know at any time that tax year and we won’t claim on your past donations.
