How we help
The Donations page on this website describes a number of ways which individuals and companies can support their industry's charity. The key message here is that 'if you don't help no one else will'.
As, with all the other occupational benevolent in the country, EEIBA does not have any access to public funds and is not normally able to raise money from the general public > Back to list
Gift Aid is a tax efficient way of donating to charity. Gift Aid allows EEIBA to claim the basic rate of income tax from a tax paying donor via the Inland Revenue. Therefore, for every £1 donated under Gift Aid, EEIBA can claim an additional 28p. > Back to list
If you are a higher rate tax payer, EEIBA can still reclaim the basic rate. However, when you complete your self assessment tax return, you can donate the difference between your higher rate and the basic tax rate by ticking the appropriate box. > Back to list

That way we can keep you up to date with all that is going on in the Association and, most importantly, it gives the opportunity of thanking you for your kind generosity.> Back to list
