Donate Goods – Homelessness Charity – Emmaus UK #donate #to #me

#donate household goods


Donating your goods to Emmaus

Donate goods

Emmaus communities depend on donations of furniture and other goods to keep their business going. We also save more than 3000 tonnes of items from going to landfill every year.

Just because you no longer need an item, don t throw it away, by donating it to Emmaus you re not only keeping it out of landfill, but you re also making sure it goes to a new home, while also doing something to help others.

It goes without saying that we need to be able to re-sell items, but if a piece of furniture is a little bit battered and worn, we can sometimes give it a new lease of life in our upcycling workshops.

Donate furniture

We accept donations of good quality furniture. We can only take donations of sofas and chairs if they have a fire label, as otherwise we re not allowed to sell them on. We can also arrange to collect large items from your home.

Donate electrical items

Many of our Emmaus communities are able to PAT test electrical items for safety, which means, unlike a lot of charity shops, we can take donations of electrical items.

Donate clothing

We can accept all sorts of clothing and fabric donations, and we recycle anything we re not able to sell on in our shops.

We can also accept donations of books, records, CDs, bric-a-brac, china, glasswear and bicycles.

To find out if your local community is able to accept your donation, please contact them direct, or fill in the donate goods form and they ll get back to you.

Donate to Life for a Child #posters #on #blood #donation

#child donation


Donate to Life for a Child

The scope of what needs to be done is vast. Diabetes management is complex. While the first step is getting access to insulin, it needs to be followed up with education on managing diabetes, extending sustained care and also improving the quality of care. This takes both time and ongoing resources, so donations such as yours are crucial to the success and longevity of the Life for a Child Programme. Thank you for your contribution.

Dr Graham Ogle, LFAC General Manager

By donating just $1 a day to the IDF Life for a Child (LFAC) Programme, you can provide a child with:

  • Regular insulin
  • Quality blood glucose monitoring equipment (meter, strips, lancets)
  • Essential clinical care
  • Up-to-date diabetes education materials
  • Specialised diabetes training for medical staff

Donations to the Programme are carefully directed to key areas of diabetes care and management so that established paediatric diabetes centres and associations can provide the best possible care, given local circumstances, to all children and youth with diabetes in developing countries. Financial trails and health outcomes are carefully monitored by the Programme management team. Along with detailed and regular financial information, centres also send an annual list of the children who are supported, along with full medical details on each child (de-identified). Site visits of centres by international experts are conducted as needed.

Less than 5% of funds are used for administration.

How to donate

Tax relief on charitable donations varies greatly from country to country. If you are donating from Australia, The Netherlands, or USA. your donation is eligible for tax deductibility. Learn more .

#charity organisations


Welcome to our Charity Registration Services

We are Businesslegal a legal services consultancy established since 1994. We incorporate and set up both profit and non-profit organisations. On the non-profit side we have considerable expertise in charity registration of organisations in England and Wales with the Charity Commission. In Scotland we register charities with the OSCR (Office of Scottish Charity Regulator) .

We assist individuals or organisations who wish to register a charity organisation with the Charity Commission or OSCR and thereby obtain a charity number. Whether you are resident in the UK or overseas we can show you how to get charity status. You may need our assistance to set up an appropriate charity organisation (eg a trust, charitable incorporated organisation, company limited by guarantee or a constitution) and then register it as a UK charity. or, you may already have one of these organisations set up but need expert advice on how to register a charity in the UK .

As a separate process we assist charities who wish to register a charity with HMRC so that they can claim gift aid relief on donations from individuals. This is an entirely independent process to registration of a charity with the Charity Commission.

What is a Charity? Do you qualify for registration?

Charities must have, and carry out, wholly charitable purposes and activities. Not all purposes, even those that may be beneficial or philanthropic, are necessarily charitable.

FCRA: NGO Receiving Donation from Outside India #donating #cord #blood

#donation for ngo


FCRA: NGO Receiving Donation from Outside India. Foreign Donor.

NGO Receiving Donation from Outside India:

There are certain restrictions for NGOs to receive donation from outside India. The source of money is the important determination in applying Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) of 1976 on the recipient NGO. Any foreigner or organization, which is not controlled by Indians, is a ‘foreign source . Some organizations such as World Bank and UN Agencies are not called ‘foreign source’.

NGO need to have either prior permission or registration under FCRA.

In order to receive contribution in any kind or currency from foreign sources NGO needs the approval from Indian government which is called prior permission or they have to register under FCRA (foreign contribution regulation act). Foreign source includes:

i. The Government of any foreign country or territory and any agency of such Government.

ii. Any international agency, not being the United Nations or any of its specialized agencies, the World Bank, International Monetary Fund or such other agency as the Central Government may, by notification in the official Gazette, specify in this behalf.

iii. A foreign company within the meaning of the section 591 of the Companies Act, 1956 (1 of 1956), and also includes-

a. A company which is a subsidiary of a foreign company.
b. A multi- national corporation within the meaning of this Act.

iv. A corporation, not being a foreign company, incorporated in a foreign country or territory.

v. A multi-national corporation within the meaning of this Act.

vi. A company within the meaning of the Companies Act, 1956 (1 of 1956), if more than one-half of the nominal value of its share capital is held, either singly or in the aggregate, by one or more of the following, namely:

a. Government of a foreign country or territory.
b. Citizens of a foreign country or territory.
c. Corporations incorporated in a foreign country or territory.
d. Trusts, societies or other associations of individuals (whether incorporated or not), formed or registered in a foreign country or territory.

vii. A trade union in any foreign country or territory, whether or not registered in such foreign country or territory.

viii. A foreign trust by whatever name called, or a foreign foundation which is either in the nature of trust or is mainly financed by a foreign country or territory.

ix. A society, club or other association of individuals formed or registered outside India.

x. A citizen of a foreign country, but does not include any foreign institution, which has been permitted by the Central Government by notification in the Official Gazette, to carry on its activities in India.

Any organization, which has a ‘definite cultural, economic, educational, religious or social program’, is covered by FCRA. For practical purposes, this definition covers all NGOs and also the unregistered societies like Mahila Mandals. NGO with FCRA registration or prior permission should not give FCRA funds to NGOs which do not have FCRA registration or prior-permission. NRI donations to an Indian NGO may be Indian funds or FC funds. If the NRI holds an Indian passport, then the donation will be Indian funds. If not, then these will be FC funds. The type of bank account or currency does not matter.

From donor point of view, the following guidelines will be helpful in deciding whom to donate and what are the implications:

i. If you are holding Indian Passport, you are free to donate to any NGO registered in India. Your donation will not be treated as of foreign source.

ii. If you are a non-resident Indian, not holding Indian Passport, you can donate to NGOs that registered under FCRA. Your donation will be treated as of foreign source.

If you wish to donate an NGO that is not registered under FCRA, you may give a letter of intention to donate a specified amount for a specific purpose/program of the NGO to the Central Government of India and the NGO.

NGO need to apply for prior permission, under FCRA act, by attaching your letter of intention. Once prior permission is received by the NGO, then that NGO is eligible to accept your donation.

iii. If you are a citizen of any country other than India, the norms as stated above in point (ii) will apply.

iv. Please verify the NGO for FCRA certificate before you donate.

Get detailed information and forms visit FCRA FOR NGOs and you shall learn about FCRA with and forms are also available.
Post your NGO PROFILE, which may help others to know about your Organization. Any Non Governmental organization from any country shall post their profile which is 100% free.
