The ED Society depends on donations for its existence and there are several ways in which you can help:
- Make a one off donation by sending a cheque made payable to the ED Society
- Pay through PayPal (Use the Donate button at the top right of the page)
- Make regular donations via a standing order from your Bank
- Send a book of stamps
- Hold a fundraising event
Any donation, no matter how small or large, will be of tremendous help to the work we do in supporting all individuals who have experience of ED.
This costs you nothing at all – if you or a member of your family is a UK taxpayer then the ED Society can reclaim the tax made on donations and membership at no additional cost to you. For example, if you make a £10 donation to the ED Society, we can reclaim 25p from the Inland Revenue making your total donation worth £12.50.
Please use the form below to complete and send back to us when making your donation.
Payroll Giving is simple to operate and it can help you to build good relations with your employees. Charities benefit because they get regular donations to help them with good causes. And your employees benefit because they get tax relief on the donations straight away at their top rate of tax, meaning that their donations cost them less.
This is a flexible scheme which enables you to make charitable donations straight from your gross salary (before tax has been deducted) therefore you get immediate tax relief on the value of your donation.
For example, it would only cost an employee who pays tax at the basic rate of 20 per cent £8 to make a £10 donation to their charity. And it would only cost an employee who pays tax at the higher rate of 40 per cent £6 to make the same sized donation.
Furthermore many employers are encouraging the scheme by matching their employee donations. This can be done regularly or as a one off!
Giving through your pay provides a regular source of income for the ED Society meaning we can continue to offer help and support to individuals, children, young people and families.
As an organisation we rely totally on donations. There are many ways your company can get involved:
- As an employee you could try to get your company interested
- Get some work mates together to fundraise.
Many companies offer Match Giving schemes as a way to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organisations, by joining the scheme your Company will match and Double Your Donation! Ask your company’s personnel department to learn if they offer such a scheme.
Donate Items for Auction/Raffle
The ED Society could use items to auction at their special events or to give away as prizes for the annual raffle. Items may be tickets to national sports events or theatre/cinema, weekend away, restaurant meal, family day out, etc. Why not ask your Company if they would like to donate any items.
Honour a birthday, Christmas or anniversary. Instead of receiving gifts you may like to ask for money to be donated to the ED Society.
Please look at our Fundraising page to see how you can very easily fundraise at work or at school.
