Other ways of giving

Gift Aid
If you pay tax in the UK, then Gift Aid is a simple way to increase the value of your gift to a charity. Making your donation using Gift Aid will enable the charity to reclaim the basic rate tax on your gift to them. This means that if you give £10 to charity using Gift Aid, that gift is worth £12.50 to the charity.

You can make payments by cash, cheque, postal order, direct debit, standing order, debit or credit card or even in a foreign currency (including the euro).

You can give any amount, large or small, regular or one-off and the charity can reclaim the tax. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can claim relief on the difference between the basic rate and higher rate of tax. If you do not pay tax, you should not use Gift Aid.

Bank Transfers
As well as making donations by credit or debit card, or by cheque or postal order, you can also donate by making a transfer direct from your bank account. This is really easy if you do on-line banking.

Please contact us for the details.

Payroll Giving
If your employer has joined the Give As You Earn scheme you can nominate HDSK as your chosen charity and give directly from your pre-tax salary, so money that would normally go to the taxman goes to HDSK instead. You just decide how much you want to give each month – it could be a couple of pounds, or more. Then your donation comes out of your pay packet before tax is deducted.

eBay
eBay for Charity is an easy way to support your favourite causes while selling your unwanted items on eBay. As a seller, you can choose a charity, and select the percentage of the sales price you wish to donate - and ebay will do the rest. Click here for more info

A Legacy in your will
Legacies are a way of providing for the people and causes that you care for in your will. If you don’t have a will it’s a good idea to ask your solicitor to draft one for you. A properly drafted will ensures that your wishes are carried out as you would want them to be.

If you already have a will, it’s easy to amend it. Minor changes, such as adding a gift to HDSK, do not require a new will. The existing will can be amended by preparing a document called a codicil, which your solicitor can help you draw up. (Please note the wording of a bequest may differ in Scotland. Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the correct terms.)
