Are you a UK taxpayer? If so, have you filled out a Gift Aid form for the club yet? By doing so, you can increase the amount of your donation by 20% or more, at no additional cost to you. The government’s Gift Aid scheme allows registered charities like the Neotropical Bird Club to reclaim the basic tax rate (currently 20%) on the gross equivalent of your contribution. For every £10 you pay in subscriptions or donations, the club can claim £2.50. Though these amounts may seem small, they certainly add up; our recent Gift Aid claim netted £891.18 in additional funds! Help us to boost the club’s funds by sending your Gift Aid form today.
