Using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give, the PTA will receive an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue, helping your donation go further.
This means that £10 can be turned into £12.50 just so long as donations are made through Gift Aid. Imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost you a thing.
If you wish to Gift Aid any donations you make to Long Lane PTA simply print the Gift Aid Declaration Form, complete and return to the School Office along with your donation.
Give As You Earn
In addition many employers offer schemes that allow you to donate to charities via payroll. Charitable donations come straight from your gross salary (before tax has been deducted). This means that you get immediate tax relief on the value of your donation. Therefore, for a basic rate taxpayer wanting to give a £10 donation, it will only cost you £8.00, or just £6 for higher rate taxpayers.
Furthermore, many employers are encouraging these schemes by matching their employees' donations.
Why not ask your employer if they run such a scheme?
