April 2020 update
If you would like to, and feel that you can afford to, you can make a donation to help support the organisation through the challenging months ahead by clicking on the blue PayPal button to the right.
If you are a UK taxpayer please consider completing a Gift Aid form which allows us to claim an extra 25% from the UK Treasury on top of your donation.
You must ensure that you pay the same amount or more of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax as all charities and CASC’s will claim on your gifts in a tax year and you will be responsible for paying any difference.
Choose one of the two Gift Aid forms :
- for a single donation
- for multiple donations to SMG covering donations that will be made in the future and which were made in the past 4 years
Please download and complete your choice of Gift Aid form and return it to the SMG office by:
- attaching a scan or photo of the completed form in an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
- posting to Scots Music Group, Eric Liddell Centre, 15 Morningside Road, Edinburgh EH10 4DP
If you have questions about donating or Gift Aid please contact the office on email@example.com
An important aspect to Scots Music Group’s valuable work is raising funds so that we can continue to provide generous discounts to eligible concession-holders, accessible events, affordable products and actively support our community development projects.
We no longer receive regular funding so we are now self-sustaining and need to cover a significant proportion of our costs through our own fundraising, including donations.
We welcome donations from individuals, businesses and other organisations, whether on joining as a member, enrolment or at events, or indeed at any other time. Donations can be made online (using the button to the right) or by cheque or cash at our office.
If you would like to make a donation to support a particular aspect of our activities, or include a bequest when drawing up a will, please get in touch to discuss how best to set this up.
Scots Music Group is a charity registered in Scotland number SC032702.
Use Gift Aid to make your donation go further
Your donation could be worth 25% more – at no extra cost to you.
If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid lets Scots Music Group reclaim tax on donations you have made to us.
The UK government’s Gift Aid scheme means that, for every £10 you give, we can claim an extra £2.50 from the UK Treasury, making your gifts worth more to Scots Music Group.
You must ensure that you pay the same amount or more of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax as all charities and CASC’s will claim on your gifts in a tax year and you will be responsible to pay any difference.
If you are not a UK taxpayer, for example if you are retired or a student, Gift Aid does not apply to you.
You can choose to Gift Aid any donations you make through our booking process online, for example if you decide to round up your class fees.
