Friends of The Soma Leo Foundation are a very important asset for us. People attending social events, doing silly and challenging things to raise funds, donating gifts, giving money or raising free donations through “Give as you Live” are invaluable.
We have accounts with “Give as you Live” and other similar organisations so that friends can raise free funds for the charity through online shopping, while taking advantage of exclusive deals and discounts from all sorts of retailers. To learn more about this click here.
We are HMRC registered so donations can be made through our secure account with Virgin Money. Friends can make arrangements to make regular or one-off donations. The site helps manage the “Gift Aid” top-up. The UK Government allows charities to claim back tax on donations. This tax relief is called ‘Gift Aid’. Gift Aid means charities get extra money added to their donations at no extra cost to the donor. For every £1 donated, the charity will receive £1.25 when you add Gift Aid.
Several Pound Gates and Sevatas staff use payroll giving, with the companies offering donation matching.
In the future we anticipate providing the opportunity to directly align donations to individual issues, perhaps by sponsoring a child or critical equipment. We may even have Soma Leo merchandise that can be purchased.
Making connections and letting people know about us is an important part of our activity.
