We are powered by your generosity!

We rely on your donations to keep all our activities running.

In 2020, we need £24,000 in donations, or £2,000 per month, to safeguard and grow our community. This money goes towards the costs of organising events, filming and editing meditation and Dharma videos, and increasingly for outreach and re-establishing our physical classes, post-lockdown.

Monthly gifts are especially helpful for our community, as we can then plan ahead and undertake new initiatives safe in the knowledge that this regular income will cover any running costs.

To raise £24,000 this year, we need just 40 people giving £50 or more per month, or 80 people giving £25 per month. However, everything we receive, large or small is greatly appreciated and will help us offer Dharma and meditation teaching to more people.

We use GoCardless to collect both one-off and recurring payments via Direct Debit. We only request the amounts from your bank that you ask us to.  After you have pledged a donation, any further changes will require you to approve them via an email link.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Brixton Buddhist Community to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Brixton Buddhist Community we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Brixton Buddhist Community to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Brixton Buddhist Community will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Brixton Buddhist Community receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Why this makes a BIG difference to us

We are small non-profit charitable organisation. All our teachers and team members volunteer their time freely and we operate on a low amount of income, which covers the basic costs of room rental and refreshme​nts.

However we would like put on more events and activities, such as more courses and retreats, as well as take our meditation classes out to more people in the community.

100% of your donations go towards helping us to directly maintain and grow our activities as well as introduce more people to Meditation and Buddhism. So by signing up to Gift-Aid you are contributing directly to helping the Sangha grow, at no extra cost to you.​
