Planning your event
We have a range of promotional material and sponsorship forms which you can use for offline donations which can be added to your fundraising page and we are more than happy to give you advice and tips on how to make your event as successful as possible.
Don’t forget Gift Aid!
Gift Aid is a governmental scheme that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax paid by the donors. This increases the value of your donation by 25%. Furthermore, there are many ways in which Gift Aid can also be valuable to beneficiaries and trusts through tax, shares and legacies.
If you are a philanthropist and pay higher rate tax, the Hospice will still be able to claim back basic rate tax on your donations.
If you would like to claim additional tax relief, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your self-assessment tax return or ask HMRC to adjust your tax code. You therefore can claim back the remaining higher rate tax, which tends to fall between 40 – 45%.
