Leave a Gift in your Will
A gift in your Will can help us be here for animals in the future, every single day.
Leaving part of your legacy to help protect and care for animals is a wonderful and charitable thing to do. Please remember the RSPCA Sussex East & Hastings Branch is a separately registered charity. So, if you would like the animals in your local area to benefit, we would respectfully suggest that your legacy wording reads:
"I give the sum of £X to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Sussex East and Hastings Branch, registered charity number 206314, for its general purposes and I declare that the receipt of the honorary treasurer or other proper officer of the said Branch shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy."
Sponsor a Pod
Our pods are a place of love, safety and care for so many abused, abandoned and unwanted cats.
By becoming a pod sponsor, you will help us provide a temporary home for hundreds of local cats in need.
Make your donations go further with Gift Aid.
As a UK taxpayer you will pay tax on your earnings, savings or pensions, at either a basic rate of 20% or a higher rate of 40%. If you make a donation to charity, this donation will come from money that you have already paid tax on. As a charity, we can reclaim this tax back from the Government. This means that if you donate £20, and use Gift Aid, it’s actually worth £25. And because this additional money comes to us straight from the government, not out of your pocket, you would still only be giving us £20 of your own money.
You can use Gift Aid if the amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax you’ve paid in any tax year covers the amount of tax we will reclaim on your donations. For advice on how to check if you’ve paid enough tax to use Gift Aid, visit the HMRC website.
If you are happy for us to claim the tax back on all donations you have made to us for the past four years and any future donations you may make, please complete the form below.
We are a self-funding RSPCA Branch which has to raise over £170,000 each year to continue helping local animals in need and it is thanks to kind supporters like yourself that we are able to do this.
