Last chance to match-fund do­na­tions

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

HEART of Bucks, part of the Bucks Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion, is re­mind­ing peo­ple who want to do­nate to char­ity that there is limited time left to take ad­van­tage of its ex­clu­sive ac­cess to the Com­mu­nity First En­dow­ment Match Scheme, which adds an ex­tra 50 per cent of tax­pay­ers’ money to the value of any do­na­tions.

A do­na­tion of £10,000 can be­come £15,000 with Gift Aid added on top, where el­i­gi­ble.

The scheme ends this spring – or ear­lier if the pot of match­ing money runs out.

There is no min­i­mum do­na­tion, but the matched funds are avail­able on a first­come, first-served ba­sis. Call Heart of Bucks on 01296 330134 for fur­ther de­tails.

The com­mu­nity foun­da­tion has also put out a re­minder about its Big Heat Sur­viv­ing Win­ter fund, which do­nates cash to groups who help peo­ple strug­gling with fuel poverty in win­ter. It gets do­na­tions from all sorts of sources, in­clud­ing peo­ple who au­to­mat­i­cally re­ceive a gov­ern­ment win­ter fuel pay­ment but who feel it is a lux­ury which could be bet­ter used to help peo­ple in greater need than them­selves.

If you would like to make a do­na­tion, con­tact Heart of Bucks on the num­ber above.
