Gift Aid Declaration Form
We are pleased to announce that following the adoption of the PTA UK model constitution at the EGM on the 10th May 2016, the Woodlea School PTA has now been granted a UK registered charity status. Our Registered Charity number is 1167391.
So what does this mean?
Being recognised as a charity will enable your PTA:
- to receive charitable donations from local and national companies
- to apply to grant-making charitable trusts, statutory and lottery funding organisations
- for payroll giving and company matched giving schemes
- to apply for Gift Aid
If you are a tax payer you are able to increase the value of your donation by 25% by completing the Gift Aid Section of the attached form. This applies to both one-off payment and regular donations and does not require any long-term commitment. In addition we are sometimes able to claim back tax on other voluntary contributions you make to PTA events, such as the Summer Fair, so it would be really helpful if every family could complete the Gift Aid form below. If you are a higher tax rate payer you are also able to claim back the additional 20% tax on donations, either via your annual tax return or by contacting your tax office for the relevant form.
We hope you will support us in signing up for Gift Aid. Thank you for your support.
