What is PayPal?
- PayPal enables individuals and businesses to send and receive electronic money online. It also provides other financial and non-financial services closely related to online payments.
- You can use PayPal to make single or “one-off” payments or you can open an account with them, which will allow you to make regular payments.
3. Businesses can support us through chariti.org.uk
Chariti.org.uk is an online business directory where businesses can publicise themselves whilst supporting charity at the same time. Please visit www.chariti.org.uk for more information.
However little or large your donation, it is very gratefully received and by simply filling-in our short Gift Aid form, your donation will be worth even more to us as we can then claim some additional money from HMRC.
How Gift Aid works
The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. Charities like Star Throwers take your donation - which is money you've already paid tax on - and reclaim the basic rate tax from HMRC, on its 'gross' equivalent - the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.
As basic rate tax is 20 per cent, this means that if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s actually worth £12.50 to the Star Throwers. For donations between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011 the Star Throwers will also get a separate government supplement of three pence on every pound you give.
