Any single gift is best made by using the Gift Aid method. By informing us that you wish to use this method of donating, the Foundation is able to make your donation worth more (as long as you are a UK taxpayer). Moreover, if you are a higher-rate taxpayer, you are able to claim tax back yourself.
A single Gift Aid declaration can apply to all past donations you have made (since April 2000) and to all future donations you make.
On top of this, individuals paying tax at the 40% rate can reclaim as much as £25 for themselves from the taxman for every £100 donated, by including details of their Gift Aid donations on their Self Assessment form. Individuals paying tax at the 50% rate can claim £37.50.
If you wish to donate to the Foundation using this method, simply send your cheque made payable to 'Sherborne School Foundation' to:
The Sherborne School Foundation
There is no need to use a stamp with a Freepost envelope
Alternatively, please telephone the Foundation on 01935 810554 to make a donation by credit card or make a gift online.
To make your gift tax effective, please either include a note with your cheque or tell us on the telephone that you are happy for us to reclaim the tax on your gift (you must have paid the requisite amount of tax). You can also give tax effectively online via Virgin Money Giving by clicking on the button below.
