We are always grateful for any donation made to the trust and we are now able to accept donations once again. However the trust is required to have the new donor gift aid form attached sign by all donors that made donations over the past four years and this will replace the original gift aid form. Please note that the Skiers Trust cannot reclaim tax from the Inland Revenue if the donor is a connected person (see www.gov.uk/gift-aid-what-donations-charities-and-cascs-can-claim-on for the definition of a connected person). Companies account for donation to charities before tax so gift aid is not applicable. It still remains far easier and more acceptable for companies to make sponsorship through charitable means. Shareholders accept charitable giving more readily than direct sponsorship.
