Ways you can Help | Providing a regular gift to charity
A regular gift to charity means you can make an ongoing difference to the work that your favoured charity does. It doesn’t have to be a large amount: whatever it’s size, every charity is grateful for any support you are able to provide.
Many people decide to donate in memory of a loved one - on an anniversary, a birthday or at Christmas. You can also donate each month through your wages, or directly from your bank account.
Setting up a standing order or direct debit and donating each month can really help and if you’re a UK tax payer you may also wish to consider Gift Aid, if you haven’t already done so.
This means that for every pound you give to charity, HM Revenue & Customs will give an additional 25p. It doesn’t matter which rate of tax you pay, providing the amount is at least equal to the amount that the charity will claim in the tax year. Ask your charity for further information. They should also be able to provide you with the relevant form, which is usually very simple to fill out.
