Please complete a form!
Gift aid is a government scheme that allows charities such as SPS to reclaim, from the tax man, the tax that you paid on your membership fees and donations when you initially earned the money. SPS re-claiming gift aid doesn’t cost you any extra, but it does earn the Society an extra 25p for every eligible £1 you have paid.
We have a large number of membership payments and donations on which we would like to re-claim gift aid, in order to do these we would like to ask everyone to complete a gift aid form and return it to us by post or email.
Silver members, that’s an extra £7.50 toward preserving Swindon Panel; Gold members, a whopping £50! Just for a one-off action to complete the Gift Aid form.
We have a large number of historical forms that have information missing, such as house numbers, signatures, or a tick in the yes/no box, so even if you have completed a form before, please could we ask you to complete a new one?
If, for any reason, we can’t reclaim gift-aid on monies we have received from you (such as if you aren’t a UK taxpayer), if you could please let us know this as well then we will stop pestering you! (Just by email reply will be fine).
Thank you very much!
