You will receive a quarterly newsletter keeping you up to date with our news and a certificate. You would be welcome to help with any events or talks, and will also have the opportunity of supporting one of your local Canine Concern care dogs in their visiting role.
On joining, you will receive an initial introduction of ‘your dog’, with a photo and description of how they got involved. You will then receive a quarterly of what they get up to on visits as well as in their down time, a very important time for our dogs as well as ourselves. (After all, they can’t always be well behaved and clean!)
You may even like to try your hand at organising a fund-raising event for us, or a wellness event at your place of work. A wellness event is where we will attend with one or more dogs and demonstrate what having a care dog nearby can do for your staff and their well-being, mental health and stress levels.
These are always spent wisely to help support the running of our charity, meaning we can keep our membership fees low and subsidise our volunteer members’ insurance and support costs.
If you would like to make a large donation to support a specific project or area of work please get in touch with us to discuss where you would like your money to go.
Gifts of money to UK charities by companies are made before tax is deducted (i.e. out of gross income or profits) so no Gift Aid declaration is required. Companies can claim tax relief for donations to UK charities as a charge against income in their corporation tax computation. There are also tax effective ways of donating equipment, stock or manpower.
For more information about tax relief when your limited company gives to charity visit: GOV.uk.
These are a great way to utilise your company’s assets and professional skills, demonstrating your care and commitment to our cause of helping the vulnerable and stressed. Donating discounted services or professional advice is also an easy and valuable way for your business to help.
Gifts in kind can help save valuable resources and enable us to fundraise even more effectively, meaning that even more money can be spent on our vital work.
When you give or sell shares to a charity you can get substantial relief on your income tax bill, as well as exemption from capital gains tax (CGT) on any gains you may have made on your shares.
