Regular giving: Friends of Jessie’s Fund
Regular gifts enable Jessie’s Fund to plan ahead as they provide us with a steady income stream.
Standing orders are the most efficient way of supporting our work and minimising administration costs. Setting up a regular gift of at least £2 per month means that you will become a Friend of Jessie’s Fund. If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim back Gift Aid on your donation.
- £2 per month (or £24 per year) makes you a Friend of Jessie’s Fund
- £10 per month could provide 3 music therapy sessions over a year
- A year at £20 per month could fund a day’s music therapy in a children’s hospice
- £50 per month over a year could buy a portable instrument kit
- A year at £200 per month would fund a week-long Soundtracks project
By becoming a Friend of Jessie’s Fund you will also become a friend of the many children we help each year. We will keep you informed about the work we are doing through a twice-yearly newsletter and you will have the opportunity to meet other Friends and the people working at Jessie’s Fund at small informal events.
To give by CAF Charity Account – click here or send a CAF cheque along with a completed Friends Membership Form by post as above.
Donations to Jessie’s Fund made through Payroll Giving are taken from your salary before tax. For example, every £10 you give will only actually cost you £8 (at the standard 20% tax rate); the taxman pays the balance. If you pay higher rate tax at 40%, the actual cost of a £10 donation is only £6.
You can use Payroll Giving provided you are an employee and your employer operates a Payroll Giving scheme. If they don’t, you could ask if they would be willing to start one.
If you have decided to give through Payroll Giving, you can download and print the Payroll Giving form. If you don’t have a printer, email your details to us and we’ll post a form to you. Complete the payroll giving form and give it to your employer to authorise them to deduct your donation from your regular pay. Please also send a copy of your completed form to Jessie’s Fund, 15 Priory Street, York YO1 6ET.

Gift Aid is a scheme run by the government which allows registered charities in the UK to claim back tax on donations. So if you are a UK taxpayer, you can complete a Gift Aid declaration when you make a donation and we can claim back 25p for every £1 that you donate (at basic rate).
Please download, complete and send your donation form with its Gift Aid Declaration to Jessie’s Fund, 15 Priory Street, York YO1 6ET.
