You can support The Devonshire Association in a number of ways.
If you have any queries, please contact our Registrar – details here.
You can become a member of the DA for as little as £15 for a year’s subscription. The details are on our membership page, here.
You can make a donation to us via PayPal. Credit cards and debit cards are accepted even if you don’t have a PayPal account. Most of our events pages now have a donation button on them, so if you would like to donate for a particular event please go to the relevant page. However, if you would like to make a general donation, just click the button below.
The DA has been added to the list of charitable organisations on Amazon Smile.
If you shop on Amazon you can choose the DA as your charity and Amazon will give us a small donation on some of your purchases at no cost to you.
To choose the DA as your charity you can either click on the logo above or go to this link: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/252468-0.
Gift Aid is a free way for any taxpayer to increase the value of any money sent to us, as a charity, by 25%. This means that a donation of £100 would actually be worth £125 to the DA at no extra expense to the donor. Gift Aid is also applicable to membership fees and is a valuable extra source of revenue. There are still some members who are eligible to sign up to Gift Aid. If you think you might be one (i.e. are a tax payer), or you can’t remember, please contact our registrar, Dr Bridget Gillard.
Recently, we were extremely fortunate to have received a generous donation from an anonymous donor. Donations of any magnitude are always welcome and can be anonymous if you wish. You will certainly receive a letter of thanks however you want your gift treated.
We occasionally receive legacies and these are very welcome. Please consider leaving a gift to the Association in your will. On a practical front giving to a charity will reduce your Inheritance Tax liability and may even take you down into a lower bracket – possibly worth more to your estate than what you leave to charity. If you have already made a will, please consider adding a codicil.
