* Terms and conditions
I am pleased to confirm that I wish to participate in the Pennies from Heaven scheme and hereby authorise WHSmith as my agent to collect each pay period from my salary such odd penny balances (maximum 99p per pay period) and to distribute such amounts to the WHSmith Trust. This authorisation is effective from the date I submit this form and shall remain in force until cancelled in writing. If I am a UK Taxpayer I give my consent for Gift Aid to be reclaimed on my donations (this boosts your donation by 25% and costs you nothing) and agree for my employer to provide the charities and Pennies from Heaven with my name and address for this purpose only. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference. It is noted that a minimum of 93% of my donations will go directly to the nominated charity with the rest retained by Pennies from Heaven Fundraising Limited to cover administration costs. This fee is offset however if donations are eligible for Gift Aid as for every £1 donated the charities, after reclaiming Gift Aid, will receive £1.16 after the fee is deducted.
Where the money goes...
The WHSmith Trust is an independent registered charity (registered charity no.1013782) working to support the local communities in which WHSmith staff and customers live and work.
It funds three main types of causes:
- Large scale literacy projects, currently through a long-standing partnership with the National Literacy Trust;
- Local schools through donations to fund books and other literacy resources;
- Employee nominated charities, schools and other good causes by matching money from staff fundraising and time spent volunteering.
