There are a number of tax effective ways of giving to charities; the website shows some of the ways in which you can support Project Peru by doing this while at the same time make your gift go further.
Make more of a difference!
People often only give to charity when they're confronted by an appeal and asked to donate. We could all do more to support the causes we care about. It's easy to make a one-off gift to charity, to give over the phone or online with a debit or credit card; it's quick, easy, and painless! A regular donation would be even better. We need your help to ensure a steady income for our ongoing work in Peru, and funding for any special projects.
What does Project Peru need money for?
Project Peru's main requirements are for:
- The core running costs for our children's refuge where we normally have up to 40 children and young people in our care.
- Periodic capital costs for our own buildings, garden and education-based improvements.
- Development of social/outreach projects in the local community.
- Specific external community projects in other parts of Peru.
Our core running costs
These include the monthly revenue costs of running the children's refuge including wages, food, health, education, psychological support, extra-curricular activities, transport, services, general building maintenance, cargo costs and legal and administrative costs.
How can you help us?
Regular monthly Gift Aided* donations are crucial to enable our work to continue. For example...
A £100 donation plus Gift Aid* will pay for one child to live for a month in our refuge
A £50 donation plus Gift Aid* will pay for one child for two weeks
A £25 donation plus Gift Aid* will pay for one child for one week
[*Gift Aid currently gives us an additional 25% from personal donations by UK taxpayers]
For all donations please make cheques payable to 'Project Peru'. This is usually the most cost effective way.
Please post to Project Peru, 1, St. Catherine's Hill, Guildford,GU2 4EF or ask us for our bank details.
But there are also a number of different and straightforward ways of donating on line; see the various 'Donate' buttons at the bottom of every page on this website.
Just imagine...a donation of £1,000 plus Giftaid would make our refuge a safe and happy place for one child for a whole year.
