Make a donation
Our centre has running costs of £650k per annum. In order to meet and exceed them we are constantly fundraising. Below are some easy ways of donating to the centre.
How does it work?
From April 2008 Payroll Giving will be calculated for basic rate taxpayers at 20%
|Employee donation received by charity||Basic rate taxpayer (22% tax)||Higher rate taxpayer (40% tax)|
|Tax relief||Cost to donor||Tax relief||Cost to donor|
Is there a minimum I can give?
You can give you whatever you like; it will automatically come out of your salary.
How do I donate through Payroll Giving?
All you need to do is click here for a printable form, fill it out and hand it into your HR or Payroll department.
What if my company hasn't signed up to Payroll Giving?
It is easy, your employer will need to sign up to a Payroll Giving Agency (PGA) who do all the hard work for you, distributing donations to the employee's chosen charities.
How do I find out about Payroll Giving Agencies?
There are around nine HMRC-registered Payroll Giving Agencies (PGAs) and these are all listed on our useful links section.
Donating shares, no matter how large or small, is a very tax efficient way to give to the Chilterns MS Centre.
Basic rate taxpayers could save up to 22% income tax – costing them only £7,800 on a £10,000 donation (up until April 2008)
After April 2008 the relief will be reduced to 20% in-line with the basic rate tax changes (costing the donor £8,000 to donate £10,000 of shares)
Higher rate taxpayers could save up to 40% income tax, costing them only £6,000
Capital gains tax does not apply to charitable gifts of shares.

Leaving a Donation in your Will
Leave a Gift in your Will Have you thought about leaving a legacy or a gift in your Will to the Chilterns MS Centre? It is vital for the Centre that gifts, no matter how big or small, are left to the Chilterns MS Centre to secure the future of the care that we provide for our patients with MS. If you have included the Centre in your Will it would be really helpful if you could inform Fundraising so you won't be approached again and also for us to say thank you! Please click here to email us stating you are interested in leaving a gift in your Will. You can be updated on information about MS and the Centre that is of interest to you. We have Pledge Forms and Codicil Forms if you would like to make an amendment to your Will. Thank you so much for your support and for enabling patients with MS to be treated and supported by the Centre.
