The BWCE Community Fund is operated by an independent charity and welcomes donations. Together with funds donated by BWCE, donations will be used to support community projects that reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
Some BWCE members have requested the option to forego some or all of their interest in favour of the BWCE Community Fund.
For those members that wish to do this, and there is absolutely no compunction for you to do so, it relates to this years interest only and is entirely your choice. BWCE will pay you the full interest you are owed and you can then make your donation.
The BWCE Community Fund has registered with HMRC so it can claim Gift Aid. This means that BWCE will, assuming you are a tax payer, be able to increase the value of your donation even further by reclaiming the tax you would have paid on your donation. If you are a higher rate tax payer you may also be able to claim tax relief on your donation. For further information on gift aiding donations, please see the link here.
If you wish to gift aid your donation you must complete and return the form linked here to the Fund’s registered office, address details below, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
