Making Donations

There area a number of ways you can donate to BWA.

Postal Donations

If you would like to donate, please send your cheque, made payable to BWA, to the address above.

Gift aid

If you are a taxpayer, you can enable BWA to reclaim the tax paid on your donation by simply filling in the Gift Aid Form. This means that for every £1 you donate, BWA gets over 25p.

There are several different Gift Aid forms – for one-off or regular donations. You can download the form you need from this page.

Regular Donations

If you would like to donate to BWA on a regular basis, please complete the Standing Order form. Just download the Standing Order Mandate from this page and return it to us at the address above. You will also want the Gift Aid form for regular donations.

Otherwise, you can set up a Standing Order through telephone banking or on-line banking. 

BWA’s details are:

Co-operative Bank.

Sort Code: 08 90 16. Account Number: 65020669

Celebrate & Give

Whatever your celebration is, wedding, christening, birthday, you can help BWA improve the lives of children and families across Berkshire by asking your friends and family to make a donation to BWA instead of – or as well as – buying you a gift. 

If you would like to ‘Celebrate & Give’, please send your cheque made payable to BWA, to the address above.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving (also known as Give as You Earn or Workplace Giving) is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly, on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice.   Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay.

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax: e.g. If you donate £1.00 to your charity, this will only cost you 80p. If you pay a higher rate of tax, then for each £1.00 you donate to your charity, it will only cost you 60p.

Employers: For more information on how to set up a Payroll Giving scheme to allow your employees to give to charity from their wages, using a Payroll Giving Agency, click here.

Giving in Memory/in Memoriam

If you would like to donate to BWA in memory of someone special, a family member or friend, you can send a cheque, made payable to BWA to the address above or visit Memorygiving or Justgiving in Memory.
