Make a Donation

Donate via a provider:

Direct Giving:

Set up a monthly standing order or give a one-off gift via your bank or building society by sending us an Email Request; we will then send you our Charity Bank details.

Donating in this way ensures 100% of your donation goes directly to our projects.

Completing and returning the available Gift Aid form means The T.E.A Project can claim an additional 25 % on your donation at no extra cost to yourself.

We will keep you updated on the work and impact that your donation has enabled so you can continue to appreciate the real benefit.

Make your donations go further

The Government operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated. So if you donated £100 to The T.E.A Project, it means that you’ll actually be giving us at least £125.

Giving under Gift Aid means that so much more money can be raised at no extra cost to our donors.

Gift Aid – the facts
For individuals, the rules require the completion of Gift Aid Declaration Form

  • This provides us with the minimum information required for us to be able to claim Gift Aid on a donation.
  • Gift Aid can be claimed on individual and sponsorship donations that are made to The T.E.A Project.
  • Gift Aid applies only to ‘gifts’. That means we can’t use Gift Aid to boost fundraising totals on activities where people have been charged an entry fee, made a purchase;or have entered a competition. This also extends to activities where the donor can’t be traced (such as giving to collections).
  • To ensure that the Gift Aid claim is valid, meaning we can claim the money back, it’s vitally important that all the information asked for on the Gift Aid Declaration Form is provided.

Gift Aid Declaration Forms

Any charity has to be able to provide, when requested, a valid declaration through which Gift Aid has been claimed, so it’s incredibly important that any forms sent back to us are accurate and complete. All Gift Aid Declaration Forms should include the following (which our standard form does):

  • The name of our charity (ie The T.E.A Project)
  • The full name and home address of the person making the declaration, including their postcode. Declarations cannot be made jointly.
  • A clear indication that the person wants to make a declaration (normally a tick box is used), and a statement as to which donations are to be covered by the declaration.
  • A statement that the person making the declaration must have paid an amount of income tax (or capital gains tax) at least equal to the amount of tax reclaimed by all charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs on all their donations in the tax year (6th April one year to 5th April the next). Currently 25p for every £1 donated. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify.
  • A reminder that supporters should inform us of any changes in their tax circumstances or name/home address.


Higher Rate Tax Payers and Gift Aid

If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax 40 and/or 50 per cent and the basic rate of tax 20 per cent on the total 'gross' value of your donation. If you want to receive the additional tax relief you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code. The SA Donate Scheme ceased from April 2012. This means that donors can no longer send a tax refund to a charity straight from their tax return. Donors can still donate their tax refund to any charity themselves and claim Gift Aid if the qualifying conditions have been met.


Donate Educational Resources:

School supplies

A donation to The T.E.A Project enables us to provide the essential training and workshops needed to empower vulnerable children living in poverty. A gift of £10 provides vital T.E.A-Training materials, £30 funds one fully staffed & equipped day of L.I.F.E. Training and £100 allows The T.E.A Project to employ a local Project Worker full time. We are a grass roots charity doing some big work. Every penny is felt. Your donation is vital to that success.

Where does your donation go?

  • Your sponsorship helps to buy essential materials and equipment to train the most disadvantaged young people in our society.
  • Your sponsorship helps The Project do outreach work; providing the means to travel to remote regions and be accessible to the most vulnerable children and young people. 
  • Your sponsorship secures a permanent overseas base for The T.E.A Project.

The T.E.A Project has helped to raise the ambitions and aspirations of children who have little hope. We help children develop new skills, identify undiscovered strengths and dreams, develop resilience and build much needed self-esteem in children who feel they have no voice, few rights, no real future or goals to aspire them.

Without the support and generosity of inspiring individuals & organisations The T.E.A Project would not be able to provide the support necessary to assist vulnerable children living in poverty.

We had an idea but you give The T.E.A Project life.
