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 registration & accountancy software) plus bank fees (including foreign exchange fees for transferring funds to Africa). Our website is created by one of the trustees for free and is hosted for free by Krystal Hosting. 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 very happy for you to specify which project any donation is to be used for.
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.
We are registered with Give as you LIve Donate. This makes it very easy to donate to Vula Amehlo Trust or for you to organise a fundraising event to support the Trust. Give as you LIve Donate provides all the tools you need to set up a fundraising page. Give as you LIve Donate can also collect gift-aid information on our behalf if you are a UK tax-payer. This allows us to increase the value of your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you.
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. Click on the buttons below to either donate or to fundraise via Give as you LIve Donate.
