national lottery, the health lottery, the local council and as statistics show only 1 out of 10 are successful in receiving funds, the other 9 must repeat the process and continue doing so but are not guaranteed success.

Every £1 you donate, only 15p goes to these causes, the remaining 85p pays for corporate big bonuses, their investors, their work force. Pays for their big offices, and let’s not forget all the gift aid they claim back, 25%, (25p in every pound) which is claimed every month, generating millions extra.

Speaking to local charity

promises a warm All

organisations and the people they serve throughout the 23 wards that make up Waveney county, we learned that every one of our local charities and good causes struggle to secure funding every month. With the ever-increasing running costs, charities are forced to either increase their fees, or reduce their work force, and in some cases cancel their services How is the WCGF different?

The Waveney Charities Giving Foundation is a charities platform set up to receive donations every month from residents and local businesses who believe in Local donations for Local good causes. The WCGF Platform has been designed so that your regular donation (£4 a month) will reach

records of donors must accompany Gift

Aid applications Addresses) etc.

charitable organisation ONLY within Waveney, we guarantee 100% of your donation reaches good causes throughout the 23 wards.

Every month the WCGF on receiving applications from organisations within the county, will be sourced and applied to their importance, how much funding they need, plus how much funding is available. Once a decision has been made, the WCGF Chief Operations Manager, will visit each applicant to determine the 2nd stage process.

Who can join? Businesses that are based in Waveney, whose employees are residents within Waveney are invited/contacted and asked if they wish to donate and join the WCGF. Employees who are tax payers, and reside in the UK (Waveney), and donate regularly to registered charities can claim on their annual tax, thus reducing their annual tax bill. Residents within Waveney (23 wards) are asked to support/ donate/join

the WCGF, and

regularly donate £4 a month, by doing so we can help them claim (if they are a UK tax payer) on their annual personal tax bill. Every person who registers with the WCGF, and donates £4 a month, we can give them the means to claim back or offset their personal tax. Each member must fill out and return a membership form, which is kept at the WCGF head office. This information is used to apply for Gift Aid, HMRC application, stipulates that
