Donations

If you would like to make a donation to the St George's Kidney Patients Association there are several ways. You can either donate online, pay by cheque or leave a legacy in your will. Details are below.

Donating Online

We have set up two online accounts with online charity services to donate by credit card, debit card or PayPal. You can choose to make a one-off donation or a regular (monthly) donation.

Our prefered organisation is Virgin Money Giving. This is because as a not-for-profit organisation, we pay lower charges for using the service. They also collect gift aid on our behalf if you are eligible.

or alternatively visit our page on www.justgiving.com/stgkpa/

Also don't forget to ask whether your employer will match donations you make. Doubling your donation will make your efforts even more rewarding.

Note: Why we prefer Virgin MoneyGiving.
Just Giving deduct a 5% charge, VAT and card charges meaning that if you qualify for Gift Aid, £11.74 of a £10 donation will be received by us.
For VirginMoney Giving the equivalent figure we receive is 40p more at £12.14.

You can also set up your own fundraising page for St Georges KPA on both Virginmoneygiving.com and JustGiving.com.

Regular Online donations

Give as you Earn

Make Payday Even Better

Give As You Earn - It's the easiest way to support St George's Kidney Patients Association. Check if your employer offers such a scheme. If so sign up, and your regular donation will come directly from your salary. If not, why not try to convince them to offer the scheme. There are companies out there that can help them. Her Majesties Revenue & Customs (HMRC) provide a list of approved providers which can be found here. These companies do charge around 5% for the service but maybe your employer will cover this cost for you.

Also don't forget to ask whether your employer will match donations you make. Doubling your donation will make your efforts even more rewarding.

and the benefits?

Not only is Give As You Earn really simple, but it’s also rally tax effective. How come? Because your donation gets deducted before you pay the taxman.  For instance, if you donate £5, only £4 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest.

What if I change my mind?

No worries!  You can cancel your donation, change the amount, and which charities you would like to support, at any time.   

Your Charity, Your Choice

Donations can be made to any national/local charity or recognised good cause such as places of worship, schools and scout groups and you can nominate more than one charity to benefit from your donations.  Any donations can easily be changed or cancelled at any time.  If your chosen charity is not listed on your employers site you should still be able to support us. Please include the Registered Charity number (England & Wales) - No: 1021655 - so there is no delay in forwarding on your donation.  If our charity is not listed by your employers service provider please email the Give As You Earn service provider, copying us in at donations@sgkpa.org.uk.
