Donating is Simple!
We welcome donations both large and small. We are a small charity run entirely by volunteers in our own homes. We have no employees to pay and no buildings to rent or maintain. Our only running expenses are small amounts for incidental costs (website hosting & accountancy software) plus bank fees for transferring funds to Africa. The trustees normally bear office costs (such as postage, stationery, telephone costs etc.) personally. This means that virtually all of the money that you donate goes directly to the projects which we support rather than in costly administration.
We are fully registered with the Charity Commission in the UK (Registered Charity Number 1098877) and can claim tax back on donations (through the gift aid scheme) if you are a UK tax payer.
So, if you do donate to us…don’t forget to download, complete and send us a gift aid form if you are a UK tax-payer. Click here for the form as a .pdf document. Contact us if you would like one posting to you instead.
You can give in several ways:
Virgin Money Giving
We are registered with Virgin Money Giving. This makes it very easy to donate to Vula Amehlo Trust or for you to organise a fundraising event to support the Trust. Virgin Money Giving provides all the tools you need to set up a fundraising page. Virgin Money Giving can also collect gift-aid on our behalf. We are happy to allocate the funds that you raise to either Pasture Valley, Eye Project or Ebenezer Clinic if you let us know your preference.
