Donations

You can use the box at the bottom of this page to make a one-off donation via a credit or debit card.

Making a regular donation

One of the best ways to support our work is to make a regular donation. Regular giving enables us to plan and develop our services much more effectively and efficiently. It also helps to keep our administration costs down so more of your money can go directly where it is needed.

You probably won't miss £5 a month - it's just two takeaway coffees but you would miss £60 leaving your account in one go. It's very easy to set up a standing order. Simply complete this form (2370KB PDF) and leave the rest to us.

Cheques

Please send cheque donations, payable to "Bag Books" together with our Cheque Donation Form (75KB PDF) to:

Dean Casswell, Chief Executive
Bag Books
1 Stewart's Court
218-220 Stewart's Road
London, SW8 4UB

Increasing your donation with Gift Aid

Make your donations go further - make them tax efficient.

Charities are able to reclaim some of the tax you have paid on your donation from HMRC - currently 25p for every £1 donated.

So, if you donate £10, we can reclaim £2.50, meaning your donation is actually worth £12.50. All you need to do is tell us you want the donation to have Gift Aid and then leave it with us to sort out the official wording.

Payroll Giving

You can sign-up for payroll giving online via the Giving Online website.

The donation is taken from your gross pay, so for a basic 20% tax payer every pound you give will only cost you 80p, or only 60p if you are a 40% tax payer, or 50p is you are a 50% tax payer. In addition some employers agree to match their employees' donations.

Text

You can now donate to Bag Books via text message. Text BOOK33 £10 to 70070 to donate £10 to Bag Books (the system will also work with £1, £2, £3, £4 or £5 as well as £10).

There are no costs - we get every penny and you later have the opportunity to add Gift Aid to the donation. It's so easy. JustTextGiving by Vodafone.
