But don’t just take our word for it. Talbot Underwriting chose The National Brain Appeal as their Charity of the Year recently. As well as taking part in sporting challenges, donating time and organising fundraising events, the company came up with innovative ways to raise extra funds for us, by introducing a ‘pay for delivery’ scheme for staff getting online shopping orders delivered to the workplace.
“Our partnership with The National Brain Appeal was hugely rewarding. Because many staff have friends and family directly affected by neurological issues, they got on board wholeheartedly and worked together impressively to raise as much as they could for this very deserving cause.”
Jane Clouting – Head of Governance, Talbot Underwriting
Choosing us as your Charity of The Year is just one way to support us.
You can also:
Make a tax-saving donation
Gifts of money to The National Brain Appeal by limited companies are made before tax is deducted out of gross profits, so no Gift Aid declaration is necessary. If you pay UK tax on your personal income and then make a Gift Aid donation, we can claim back Basic Rate Tax relating to that donation directly from HMRC.
If you make a charitable donation through your limited company, and it is an allowable expense for tax purposes, the Corporation Tax due will be reduced by 20% of the total donation. You should keep all documentation to support the payment made.
There are some conditions to ensuring that charitable donations are allowable expenses for tax purposes.
Take part in a challenge event
Organise your own workplace event
This could be anything – from cake sales and karaoke nights to summer picnics with games and raffles. Or how about taking on a mass sponsored event which you can directly relate to your line of business? Get your thinking caps on and let us know what you’re planning so we can fully support you.
Make us the beneficiary of your annual company event
If your workplace throws an annual event, such a summer fun day or a Christmas party, this is a fantastic opportunity to add a charity angle to your event. We can support you with ideas on how to maximise your fundraising.
Donate, auction or raffle prizes
Does your company produce something we can use to help raise extra money? It could be food or drink we could use at our events, it could be an item we can raffle off, or an experience that supporters could bid on at auction. For any more information, just get in touch for a chat.
If you encourage staff to volunteer, we’d love to hear from you! This can be volunteering in their own time or by providing opportunities for them to volunteer in work time (by allowing volunteering leave). This is usually called ‘employer supported volunteering’ or ‘ESV’ for short. We are always looking for people willing to volunteer a few hours of their time to help us out. This can be for office-based admin support work, at our fundraising events, in the hospital on our information stall, or at challenges to meet and cheer on our partipicants.
