There are many different ways of supporting the RNOH Charity. Please read on for information about how to do so easily and tax-efficiently.
To qualify for Gift Aid you must pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax that the Charity, and any other charity you donate to, reclaim on your donations in the appropriate tax year. If you do qualify, please ensure you tick the Gift Aid box when you donate.
To make a one-off donation or set up a standing order by post, please download our gift form and return it to:The RNOH Charity
Cheques should be made payable to The RNOH Charity.
To make a gift over the telephone, using a credit or debit card, please contact the Fundraising Office on 020 8909 5362/5468.
Thanks to JustTextGiving by Vodafone you can now donate directly to the RNOH Charity by sending a FREE text message.
This is a brand new service for charities. There are no network charges for people making donations, and no fundraising costs for charities - every penny donated will go directly to the RNOH Charity . Gift Aid can also be added to donations.
You can make a donation of £1, £2, £3, £4, £5, or £10, by texting RNOH15, followed by the amount you would like to donate, to 70070. So to donate £1 you would text RNOH15 £1 to 70070. Once you have sent your text, JustGiving will reply with a message about Gift Aid.
When you choose Payroll Giving, your donation is deducted from your salary before it is taxed. This means that for every £1 you give, it will only cost you 80p – or 60p if you are a higher rate taxpayer.
The payroll department within your company will be able to tell you if your employer offers the Payroll Giving scheme. Some companies even offer ‘matched giving’ schemes, where they will match or double the value of your gift.
Making a donation to the RNOH Charity in memory of a friend or relative will not only support our hospital, it will also pay tribute to the memory of your loved one. If you are collecting donations from friends and family, a number of options are open to you:
You don’t have to run a marathon or climb a mountain to raise money for the RNOH Charity! If you have a celebration coming up - whether a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary or another special day in your life - you can use it to make a difference to our patients by suggesting that your guests make a contribution to the RNOH Charity in lieu of buying you a gift.
For those hosts who want to give their guests a keepsake in recognition of their donation, we can supply you with RNOH Charity wristbands. Please contact the Fundraising Office for further information.
JustGiving is a great way of collecting sponsorship money. It’s very easy to use – you can set up your own fundraising page in minutes - and all the funds that are donated will be transferred straight to the RNOH Charity. Your sponsors will also be able to Gift Aid their donation with a simple click of a button.
To set up a JustGiving page, visit www.justgiving.com and follow the simple instructions. If you would like help setting up your page, please contact the Fundraising Office.
Donations of shares and investments have become one of the most tax-efficient methods of making charitable donations. As from 6 April 2000, a new Income Tax relief applies to gifts of quoted shares and certain other investments by individuals and companies, whether resident in the UK or not. This is in addition to the relief from Capital Gains Tax.
The amount a donor can deduct is the market value of the shares or securities at the date of disposal, plus any incidental cost of disposing of the shares.
Donors can claim tax relief at the top rate of tax on their Self Assessment or Corporation Tax return.
What shares and securities qualify?
How do I donate stocks and shares to the RNOH Charity?
Please contact the Head of Fundraising, who will ask the Charity’s financial advisers to send you the relevant forms to transfer stocks. You may also like to read the HMRC’s guidance on giving land, buildings, shares and securities to charity.
Empty printer cartridges? Unwanted jewellery? Old mobile phones?Don’t just put them in the bin - put them in the recycling bin! The RNOH could be earning up to £70 from recyclable items such as this, so please put them to good use!
Recycling is quick and easy to do. To recycle printer or laser cartridges, or mobile phones, simply go to www.recycle4charity.co.uk, register yourself, and pick the RNOH as your beneficiary; they will then send you all the bags you need for your recycling.
To recycle old jewellery, watches, or foreign notes and coins, go to www.jewelleryrecycling.org. Again, simply register yourself and choose the RNOH as your beneficiary, and the company will send you all the bags you need.
These recycling bags can be distributed to friends and family, or you could get your place of work involved in the scheme. You can also keep track of the Charity’s progress online and see how much you’ve managed to raise.
