Policy & Resources goes back on its promise to consider introducing Gift Aid and Payroll Giving, again

Members will by now have received a letter from Deputy Stephens explaining why Policy & Resources decided not to commit to these measures in 2017.  This follows from the earlier decision not to do this for 2016, and for the same reasons.  They have instead promised, yet again, a further review for 2018.

This is naturally very disappointing and we know, from your correspondence, that some of you are not happy about this unreliable treatment from the States of Guernsey at a time when they express apparent support through the Social Compact, and a desire to engage charities to commission services.

Of course we will, once again, work with the States on the 2018 review, in keeping with our Social Compact commitment to work co-operatively together.  We are currently in discussion with Policy & Resources to establish a robust Terms of Reference for this latest review that does not end up letting you all down, again.

Giving.gg - making fundraising easy for local charities

Giving.gg is the new online donation facility for members of the Association of Guernsey Charities.  It is an easy way for organisations to collect donations, via the internet, using credit/debit card, PayPal, or internet banking.  Whilst the card companies may deduct a small processing fee, the major benefit to charities is that Giving.gg charges no admin/membership/joining fees.  So more of the donation goes to the good cause.  <<more>>
