The Bishop’s Stortford Civic Federation (Registered Charity No. 264557) receives annual subscriptions from its members but also gratefully receives donations when residents wish to support us to a greater extent.

These extra funds enhance our ‘fighting fund’ which we use when we consider there is a major development issue in the town which requires our support. Your donation, with or without Gift Aid, will provide us with the additional support we need to protect the heritage of the town and make it a great place for work, live and play.

As an individual, you can boost each £1 of your donation by 25p through Gift Aid. Gift Aid is reclaimed from HM Revenue & Customs from the tax you pay for the current tax year.

Your full name, home address and permission is needed by HMRC to identify you as a current tax payer.

  • Donations of any size are eligible for Gift Aid as long as you have paid enough income tax to cover the amount of tax reclaimed.
  • Gift Aid can work for you too: it can increase your basic-rate tax threshold. If you pay income tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief that Gift Aid makes available, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your self-assessment tax return, or ask HM Revenue & Customs to adjust your tax code.
  • Gift Aid cannot be claimed when donating on behalf of a company. However, companies can offset their giving against their business profits to reduce their Corporation Tax payable.

You may pay by a BACS transfer; please use your name as a reference. Bank details:
