School Fund Donations and Gift Aid Declaration Forms
When Loreto Grammar School became an Academy, a separate Trust called the Loreto Grammar School Trust was set up into which all voluntary school fund donations are now paid. The purpose of the Trust which is a charity is ‘to advance the education of pupils at the school, in particular but not exclusively, by the provision of resources, equipment, teaching and facilities for education.’ In 2013, monies from your donations went towards replacing the stage lighting in the school hall and currently the programme includes a contribution towards the new furniture for the sixth form and dining room extension. We could not have done this without your continued support for which we are very grateful.
For those who already contribute, due to its charitable status with HMRC, the Trust is now able to claim gift aid on donations made by UK taxpayers since it was established on 17 June 2013, thereby increasing the value of donations at no additional cost to the donor. If you are a taxpayer, and already contribute, I would urge you to download and complete the gift aid declaration form and return it to the Finance Office at your earliest convenience.
For anyone who is interested in making regular donations, a bank standing order mandate is available to download, complete and return to the Finance Department. A suggested donation would be £100.00 per annum. I would like to stress that all donations are voluntary and are very gratefully received.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Booth or Mrs Howe in the Finance Team and they will be able to assist you.
