Gifts in Kind

Background Shape

Gifts in kind can save the hospice an incredible amount of money, and often reduce our operating and event expenses.

Gifts in kind are items or services that have value to us, but aren't technically a financial donation. This could be donated goods for tombolas or auctions, or your business skills, such as printing marketing materials for us.

What services can we use?
Almost anything!

One of our largest supporters is Big Tank Productions who kindly film and photograph some of our most beloved events across the year, free of charge.

Other local businesses have supported us by heping to decorate our shops, supply props for photoshoots and offer free beauty treatments to our patients.

Can I benefit from donating my company's products?
Yes! 
A company can get tax relief if they donate items that they would normally sell. If you give goods or equipment to Rossendale Hospice, they are not counted as a sale, so your company can get tax relief on the cost of the article.

What about my employees?
Donation of employees
If your company provides an employee to work for Rossendale Hospice on a secondment or a temporary basis your company can deduct the costs of their employment, including the employee’s salary in the company’s accounts

Volunteering
If employees are volunteering during work time, the company can claim tax relief for the employment costs incurred (employee’s salary). The company needs to treat the costs as a business expense when calculating chargeable profits for Corporation Tax purposes.

Can I find out more?
You may be able to spare us your time and/or expertise, or simply like to make a suggestion that would benefit our fundraising activities, if so we would love to hear from you.

If you feel you or your company have something to offer that we would be able to use within the fundraising department, please contact us on 01706 253633 or email fundraising@rossendalehospice.org

Corporate Donations
