Footwear Friends depends entirely on voluntary support to carry ; all donations are greatly appreciated and go towards the work of supporting our beneficiaries from the Footwear Industry.
Please note that the Annual Awards are NOT from these funds, they are directly sponsored by generous Companies and Individuals in the Industry.
Under the Government's "Getting Britain Giving" measures, we can treat your donation as Gift Aid, providing you pay income tax (including Capital Gains Tax). A donation made by an individual is paid in net, and Footwear Friends can claim the tax from the Government - so for every pound you give us, the taxman will give us an extra 28 pence. (Donations from companies are paid gross, so the company will need to claim the tax back themselves.)
There are two ways you can make a donation, either online by credit/debit card, or by cheque. If you're donating by cheque, please print the Donation Form (and the Gift Aid Form, if appropriate) and include them with your donation.
You can now make a donation to Footwear Friends online, using a credit or debit card. Online donations are processed by Virgin Giving; when you click to donate, you will be taken to their secure site to make your donation. Please fill out the Gift Aid information when making your donation, as this will allow us to claim a tax refund on the money you give, and make it go even further.
