Radio 4 Appeal Fund

Sometimes listeners wish to support all our Radio 4 Appeal charities. If you wish to, you can do so by making a one-off or regular gift to the Radio 4 Appeal Fund. Monies are shared between all the broadcast appeal charities. The Radio 4 Appeal Fund is run by the Charities Trust, registered charity number 327489. If you would like to consider the Radio 4 Appeal Fund in your will, please contact the Charity Appeals Unit. 

Charities Trust receive donations for the Radio 4 Appeal Fund and claim any eligible gift aid and disburse funds to the participating charities. They charge a fixed monthly fee to cover their costs. This fee is deducted from any gift aid receipts so that 100% of individual donations go to the charities. Last year the Charities Trust fee equated to less than 0.7% of total proceeds.

Did you know you may be able to increase your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you through the Gift Aid scheme? You must be a UK tax payer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in the tax year, it is your responsibility to pay the difference. 

In order to claim Gift Aid, download this form. Find out more about Gift Aid.

Thank you so much to all of our listeners who have chosen to donate in this way. If you want to see what your money does, have a look at our Totals Page
