The launch of a downloadable Gift Aid Toolkit by Deloitte and the business-led charity, Winning Scotland Foundation could help scores of Scotland’s community sports clubs generate thousands of pounds by claiming Gift Aid.
The Toolkit was co-written by one of the Deloitte Work Out For Sport volunteers, Alan Cunningham, who volunteers at Broxburn United Sports Club (BUSC).
The innovative resource provides sports club administrators with a simple, step-by-step guide to identify if their local community sports club is eligible for Gift Aid. Specifically, the Toolkit describes how clubs can maximise claims for Gift Aid on membership fees and subscriptions, sponsored fundraising and volunteer expenses. To claim back the basic rate of tax paid by a donor, a club must be registered as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) or as a charity.
