A LITTLE BACKGROUND
KASBAH was founded by a group of parents of children with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in 1966 with a desire to help other families in circumstances similar to their own. All of the support services are now open to any person with a physical and/or learning disabilities, including support for the parents, carers and families.
A message from Emma...
We are all enjoying the lovely weather here at KASBAH and arranging summer outings and trips, if you have a good resource in your area we would love to hear about it. We would also like to encourage KASBAH members to contribute more to the newsletter so if you are interested in sharing your thoughts and views, becoming a KASBAH blogger or investigating local news please do let us know. As you are all aware we ceased printing the newsletter in December but the feedback we have received is that it is discouraging people to take the time to read our news therefore we will be sending out printed copies again going forward and producing the newsletter once a quarter as opposed to every other month to help minimise printing costs. Give us a call if we can help in any way.
Emma - KASBAH Chief Executive Officer
Gift Aid provides a great opportunity for you to increase the value of the donations you make to KASBAH. Provided you are a UK taxpayer, however you make your donations, KASBAH can reclaim the basic rate tax from the Inland Revenue, boosting the donation of every £1 to £1.25.
There are several different ways you can make a donation:
Donations can be made by cheque, postal order or cash and should be posted to:
KASBAH, 7 The Hive, Northfleet, Kent DA11 9DE.
Please make cheques and postal orders payable to KASBAH. We recommend that cash payments should only be sent using a secure mailing system (i.e. registered mail).
By Standing Order
If you want to make regular donations, payments by standing order are an effective way of doing this. You can make payments weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly to suit. Once the initial forms are completed, please return them to the KASBAH office for documenting, we will then forward them to your bank who will do the rest.
Many employers now operate Payroll Giving schemes. These schemes are tax efficient as they enable you to make a donation directly from your salary before tax has been deducted. This means that if you pay the basic rate of tax, for every £1.00 you give to KASBAH, it only costs you 78 pence. (For higher rate taxpayers the scheme has even greater advantages.)
For more information about Payroll Giving please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Legacies are an effective way of making sure that your good intentions and our vital work continues into the future. Naturally, your first concern will be for your family and loved ones, but please consider helping us by including KASBAH with your will. Legacies are tax-free and simple to set up even if you do not currently have a will.
