In addition to our Annual Fund, Boutique de Noel and our fundraising events, there are many other easy and efficient ways that you can support the mission of the Junior League of London (JLL). Not all of them require direct financial contribution, just your time and a bit of dedication!
1. Make your gift go further: Gift Aid it!
Gift Aid is the UK government’s way of allowing the charities a UK taxpayer supports to reclaim tax the taxpayer has already paid to the government. For every pound received under Gift Aid, the JLL will receive an extra £25 from the Inland Revenue. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can make your dues or donation go further by checking the Gift Aid box online when you pay your dues.
2. Corporate Matching
Many corporations support employees’ charitable contributions through matching gift programmes-matching dues or donations. Matching gift programmes can double or triple the value of your contributions to JLL.
If 25% of our membership obtained corporate matching from their company or their partner’s, we would receive nearly £17,000.
If you have any questions about this or need help, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
3. Give as you Earn (GAYE)
Many employers also offer a GAYE scheme, which allows you to donate to a charity of your choice tax-efficiently by taking your donation from your pay before tax is calculated. Find out if your employer participates.
4. Support the JLL Through a 10-K or Other Challenge
Considering a 10-K run? Planning to undertake a major challenge like biking from London to Brighton, Three Peaks or something even more adventurous? Then consider asking your friends to support your efforts by creating a donor page online.
