CAF workshops on tax-efficient donations
The Charities Aid Foundation is launching a series of workshops to teach charities how to make better use of tax-efficient donations. According to the organisation, £700m is unclaimed annually on donations.
“If charities equipped themselves with the necessary skills and knowledge to make the most of tax-efficient giving, they could already be claiming their share of the £700m,” said a CAF spokeswoman. “This would more than compensate for the loss in income following the cut in tax in April 2008.”
The workshops are designed to provide small and medium-sized charities with the skills necessary to maximise tax-efficient donations and provide training in effective fundraising and marketing to potential donors.
The seminars, which will run between October and February in London, Birmingham and Edinburgh, will include topics such as Give As You Earn, boosting the value of donations, generating a regular income, ‘selling’ your charity and online fundraising.
