How to Donate

Gift Aid and Bankers Order forms can be downloaded from the Sussex Community Foundation website.  The forms set out your options for giving a single donation or setting up a regular payment.  The Foundation can also provide advice on leaving a bequest. 

When using Sussex Community Foundation forms, please ensure that you state clearly that your donation is to go to "Sussex Community Foundation - The Rye Fund".

Gift Aid

Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you donate to us, an additional 28% can be reclaimed from the Inland Revenue on donations from UK taxpayers. By signing the simple Gift Aid declaration, a donation of say £1000 can become £1280, with further individual benefit for higher rate taxpayers
