HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?
In addition to giving your time and supporting the various fundraising events above, there are many other ways in which you can help us achieve our fundraising goals:
- Fundraise - Are you planning on running a 10-K, half marathon, triathlon or similar? Why not use this as an opportunity to raise sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues in the name of 1st Lindfield Scouts?
- Corporate Matching - Many employers support local charities by offering employees the chance to boost their individual fundraising efforts by matching the money they raise for their chosen charity.
- Give As You Earn - UK taxpayers can set up a monthly donation that is deducted before tax. For each £1 that we receive in this way, the cost to the individual may be only 80p, or as little as 60p for higher rate taxpayers.
- Gift Aid - If you are a UK basic rate taxpayer and you make a one-off donation or sponsor an event held on behalf of 1st Lindfield, this enables us to maximise the value of your gift. For every £1 you donate, we can claim an extra 25p from the UK government.
And if you have any other ideas you would like to explore, why not contact our fundraising secretary to discuss them.
