We have also partnered with car donation service, Giveacar. This is a free and easy service that allows you donate your old or unwanted vehicle to GRWE. They can arrange to have your vehicle picked up at a time to suit you. Your car will then be scrapped in an environmentally friendly way, or sold at auction and a donation made to GRWE based on the value of the scrap or the auction price.
To donate your scrap car to GRWE, call Giveacar on 020 7736 4242 and quote GRWE as your chosen charity. If you have any further questions about the Giveacar scheme, please call the Giveacar team or see their website at www.giveacar.co.uk
We are able to claim a tax refund on all donations and Friends membership subscriptions made since 5 April 2003. Under HMRC rules this currently amounts to 25p in the pound, so a £10 donation becomes £12.50 at no extra cost to you! Click here for a declaration form to print, complete and return to us.
To be eligible to GiftAid your donation(s) you must be a UK taxpayer and pay income tax and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount GRWE and any other charities will claim in the relevant tax year.
Through Your UK Tax Return
From April 2004 people who complete a Self Assessment tax return will be able to nominate a charity to receive all or part of any repayment due to them. The new scheme will have real advantages for participating charities:
- The donation will be paid direct to the charity’s bank account.
- The form will incorporate a Gift Aid declaration.
- Gift Aid tax will be paid without the charity having to make a claim.
- For the first time, charities will benefit from Gift Aid on anonymous donations.
Greyhound Rescue West of England is a registered participant. We have a unique reference number, VAB49KG, which tax payers can use to nominate GRWE to receive their tax refunds.
