The club raises some of its funds through activities such as carol singing, sponsored events and serving refreshments to members of the public in the city centre, but donations are always welcome.
They will help us to keep our minibus running (and build up a fund towards its eventual replacement), and to subsidise some activities which would otherwise be too expensive for some of our members.
You can donate online via the Charities Aid Foundation. We are still in the process of setting up our online donation system through them so as an interim:
Go to https://www.cafonline.org/my-personal-giving/start-giving/donate-now and enter ‘oxford phab club’ in the search box. You should see a list of charities with ‘Oxford Phab Club’ as first entry. If you click on the name ‘Oxford Phab Club’ you should see more information, including our Charity number, which is 1021037.
Note that the Mission Statement shown for us on the CAF site is obsolete, being taken from a very old version of our Constitution, and is more a reflection on the language which was required to be registered charity when we first registered than the wording we would use then or today. The text on the Charity Commition web site is more recent, and we are trying to have the wording on the CAF site updated.
Please click on the ‘Donate to this charity’ button to help us keep making more of life together.
Cheques made out to ‘Oxford Phab Club’, or cash put in our collecting tins, or sponsoring our members for a sponsored event are welcome.
If you are eligible (a UK Tax Payer who has not exceeded their annual Gift Aid Allowance), then it helps our funds if, when donating by cheque or cash, you send a gift aid form with your donation.
The appropriate form for a single donation can be downloaded here. This should be linked from the HMRC page at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/gift-aid-declarations-claiming-tax-back-on-donations which also has links to forms for multiple donations.
Postal Donations should be sent to
Oxford Phab Club
c/o Wesley Memorial Church
New Inn Hall Street
You can also help us by signing up with easyfundraising and specifying ‘Oxford Phab’ as the cause you with to support. If you then buy items from the internet through their site it will not cost you any more, but a donation is made by the retailer, through easyfundraising, to Oxford Phab. The donation rates vary, though for amazon.co.uk it is 0.5%.
