Ways Of Giving

Braemar Community Limited is a registered charity and we can accept grants, gifts in cash or shares and legacies. Tax-effective gifts may be made by making a Gift Aid declaration and higher-rate tax payers may themselves benefit from the tax advantages of charitable giving.

If you would like to discuss your gift, what it can help achieve and how it may be recognised please contact us.

Recognising Your Support

We would like to recognise every gift in a form that the donor chooses – their own name, that of their family or perhaps in memory of a loved one. All gifts will be recognised on our website and the names of donors of donations over £400 will be recorded on a panel in the castle reception. In addition, we will use this information to ensure that you hear of progress towards reopening.

Gift Aid Donation

If you are a UK tax payer, you may support Raising the Standard campaign by making a Gift Aid donation. This means that we may reclaim from HMRC the basic rate tax on your gift (at no cost to you). This increases the value of your gift, so that a gift of £100 is worth £125 to the campaign.

 For a higher-rate tax payer, you receive a tax advantage which represents the difference between the basic tax rate and your own. (Thus a £100 donation would represent a £75 “cost” to a 40% tax payer).

*Donate button will take you to our JustGiving page where you have the option to elect to donate under Gift Aid.

Cash Donation

If you are not a UK tax payer or do not pay more tax than would be claimed on your donations in any one tax year, a donation of cash, shares or property that may be realised for the benefit of the campaign is very welcome.

Gift Of Shares

Share giving can be among the most tax-effective means of support, especially if the shares have appreciated greatly in value in your ownership. Giving shares means you get Income Tax relief on the value of the shares as well as exemption from Capital Gains Tax on disposal.

If you would like to discuss giving shares please send an email to support@raisingthestandard.org.uk
