Maypole Friends

Regular donations are really important to us, whether you choose to give monthly, quarterly or perhaps once a year on a significant date. They give us a firm foundation from which we can work towards our aim of supporting as many children and families as possible.

Being a small local charity we are 100% reliant on donations from supporters like yourself.  Every year we need to raise over £250,000 in order to continue providing our vital services to children and their families who need us. With your support your money can pay for the following so that we can reach out and help more children and families.

£15
…could pay for a support session with a Maypole befriender; where emotions can be expressed and released in a safe space.

£50
…will buy toys that are used in therapeutic play

£100
…enables our family support workers to take ill children on an outing

£750
is the average cost to support a child and their family for a year

£1,500

Reclaim Gift Aid

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows The Maypole Project to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to The Maypole Project we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.
Gift Aid It!

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like The Maypole Project to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that The Maypole Project will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When The Maypole Project receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
