Please support OAS and The Cairns!

Because we are hosting this talk by Martin Carruthers on the work they have been doing for the Cairns we will be giving the Cairns 50% of any donations made through this page
Archaeology in Orkney hasn't stopped with lockdown - there has been masses of exciting and interesting research and it contributes enormously to our understanding of our ancient past - but it all needs funding. So any donation, however small, will help !


How much would you like to donate? Any donations through this page will be split 50-50 between OAS and The Cairns.

If you are a UK tax payer then please click the Gift Aid check box on the payment form so we can claim an extra 20% back from the government so for example: If you donate £20 we will get £24.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Orkney Archaeology Society to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Orkney Archaeology Society we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Orkney Archaeology Society to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Orkney Archaeology Society will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Orkney Archaeology Society receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
