7. Gift Aid.
The School for Peace is registered with HMRC for gift aid purposes. If you donate money or sponsor a child and you are a UK tax payer, if you complete a 'Gift Aid Declaration' we can claim an additional 25p for every pound donated. This does not affect your tax status in any way but it makes a big difference. We cannot claim gift aid for general fund-raising events unless individuals who attend fill in a gift aid declaration for a stated amount for that event.
We welcome all and any fund-raising. One of the reasons for the success of this project is that a lot of the money has come as a result of "small" amounts. Over the years kind people have given us a pound here, a fiver there and, as every pound raised actually goes directly to the School (nothing is ever deducted for travel or any other expenses) the total is always surprisingly big. Of course larger scale events are also organised and it is the varied ideas and generosity of so many people that keeps the money rolling in.
