The Textile Institute Council needs to raise some £100,000 over the next three years (on top of membership fees), not just to keep the current levels of service but to raise the organisation to a new operational order better suited to the membership of the 21st Century. This may include investment in redeveloping the TI website, improving the infrastructure such as IT and library facilities/information services and increasing the Institute’s visibility through promotional activities.
We are proposing to develop a Foundation which will build on an already strong base and provide support for future growth. Money within the Foundation will be separately recognised within the Institute’s accounts and will be overseen by two members of Council – but we need your help in the form of an instant donation.
Three donor nomenclatures are proposed and each will receive benefits:
ATTENTION UK MEMBERS:
You can make an increased contibution to The Textile Institute by utilising the UK Gift Aid plan. Just complete the form below. Complete details are available from the Membership Department.
About Gift Aid
Under the Gift Aid scheme, charities can reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. Between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011, the government will also give UK charities an extra 3% of all eligible donations. This `transitional relief' does not affect your personal tax position.
What do I have to do?
When you donate, you will be asked to confirm whether or not you are a UK taxpayer. Please note that tax can only be reclaimed on donations made by individuals who pay UK income or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount reclaimed on their donations in the current tax year. If in doubt, please contact our helpdesk.
Benefits to higher-rate taxpayers
If you pay tax at the higher rate, you can reclaim tax relief on your gross donation at 20% (ie the difference between the higher rate of tax at 40% and the basic rate at 20%).
What if I am not a UK taxpayer?
The Gift Aid scheme is unique to the UK. If you are not a UK taxpayer, you can still make a donation to The Textile Institute, but your donation will not attract Gift Aid.
