Donations and Funding

FUNDING

The association is a registered charity and is a completely voluntary body that works in partnership with North Yorkshire Police (NYP) and is run solely on donations from our members. 

We are extremely grateful to have many supportive local neighbourhood watch (NHW) schemes that donate regularly, but with increased donations we could do more!  We would like to receive donations from some of our newer schemes.  Individual donations are also welcomed.  Donations usually get a mention in our newsletter which is widely distributed over the district.  To find out where to send your donations please contact info@nwatchharrogate.org.uk

WHAT ARE OUR  DONATIONS USED FOR?

Our donations are spent very carefully.  Our expenses include room hire for committee meetings, set-up meetings for new schemes and meetings to refresh older schemes, publication costs associated with our newsletter ‘Look Out’, upkeep of our website, and postage, printing and stationery.  When deemed appropriate by the committee, donations have also been used to fund specific projects which either protect or inform our members.

GIFT AID

Being a charitable organisation qualifies us to be Gift Aid registered:  This means we can make your donations go even further as we can reclaim from HMRC the income tax you have already paid on your donation.  In order for us to reclaim the income tax you must be a UK tax-payer and have signed the Gift Aid declaration.  If you are not working but pay tax on your savings, pensions, investments or rental income you can still sign the declaration.  We reclaim income tax from HMRC based on the basic tax rate of 20%.  For example if you donate £20 we can reclaim an additional £5 from HMRC.  There is no cost to youpersonally to do this.  You must pay enough income tax to cover the amount of tax we can reclaim.
