Many local businesses want to support the communities in which they operate but find themselves inundated by requests. It can be difficult to determine where assistance is most needed. A single donation to the Trust overcomes this problem. Donors simply advise local groups and charities of their single donation policy and redirect these organisations to the Trust. We use our local knowledge and expertise to assess enquiries efficiently and carefully, leaving you to concentrate on the important job of running your business.
Donations are normally applied to the Trust’s general grants fund, but for larger amounts the donor can request a Named Fund to reflect individual interests. This could relate to the type of cause helped (e.g. children with special needs) or relate to a specific geographical area.
Businesses can get tax relief when they give money to charities, whether as a one off or a regular payment, under the gift aid scheme. Visit HM Revenue and Customs for more information. It is easy to donate to the Trust.
