Do you want to play your part in reducing Winchester District's carbon footprint? Can you help fund WinACC's work?

WinACC relies on donations from individuals, organisations and charitable trusts to fund its work. A regular monthly donation is a great way to support us as it helps us to plan our work more effectively, but we are also very grateful for any one-off donations that we receive.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can use Gift Aid to increase the value of your donation without paying a penny more yourself. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, this will also enable you to reclaim a rebate on your donation via your self-assessment tax return or tax return. 

Please read our guidance before completing a Gift Aid declaration. 

How donations are used

We have lots of ideas about how to cut Winchester district's carbon footprint. We aim to raise £50,000 a year to carry out our a carefully thought through, realistic but ambitiousannual  plan

How much we can do depends on how much money and time we have.

  • £1,200 (£100 a month for a year) keeps our campaigning strong and independent.
  • £120 (or £9.73 a month to be precise) pays for our regular e-newsletter to reach 1750 people
  • £60 (£5 a month for a year) pays the advertising costs of a year's open meetings
  • £24 (£2 a month for a year) pays the travel expenses of a volunteer.

We'd like to have the flexibility to use your donation wherever it's needed most. If you want your donation to be earmarked for a particular purpose, please let us know.

How donations are acknowledged

Unless you ask us not to, we will:

  • List your name (but not the amount) in our Annual Report, if you give more than a small sum
  • Send you our regular e-newsletter “WinACC News” once or twice a month (if we have your email address).
