- Tax relief on donations. Read below and return the form
You can also make a donation through mycharity.ie:http://www.mycharity.ie/charity/novas/. Here you can find details about our charity, set up a fundraising page (that you can display on your social media pages) and make a direct donation.
Tax Relief on Donations
All charities can reclaim tax on donations made by individuals of over €250 made on or after the 1st of January 2013, whether self-assessed or PAYE tax payers.
All we need is for you to return this CHY3 Form to us and we take it from there.
A donation of €250.00 could realise a further €112.00 for Novas by reclaiming the tax already paid by you. The total value of your donation could become €362.00. Tax can be reclaimed by charities on any amount between €250.00 and €1,000,000.00. The amount of tax we can reclaim on your donation is relative to the amount of tax you have paid in a given year.
Your donation does not need to be made in one lump sum. For example, a monthly Direct Debit to Novas of €20.83 and above qualifies. A direct debit can be set up through the mycharity.ie option.
The CHY3 Form lasts for a period of 5 years. This does not compel you to dontate again to Novas at any time in the future. All you need to do is download and return the completed form to:
Chris O’Connor,Novas Initiatives, McGarry House, 7 Alphonsus St., Limerick.
Alternatively, we will be happy to post a form to you together with a replied paid envelope. Call us on 061-370325
Run an Event
Many clubs, societies, schools and other organisations have been very generous to Novas over the past number of years. It is through this generosity we can develop and deliver life-skills programmes that directly tackle the causes of homelessness, for our clients. If you would like to organise an event we would be very grateful if you would consider Novas as the beneficiary. We will also provide as much assistance as possible to ensure the smooth running of the event. For4 examply, if you wanted to run a Quix Night we will provide a bank of questions for you to use. We can even provide the quiz-master if needed.
“Our services depend almost entirely on state funding and as you can imagine our funding has been greatly reduced in recent years. The homeless are always at the end of the queue. We urgently need funds.
Our needs are not confined to financial donations or assistance. Some of our clients and residents and their children need items which are in good condition and can be passed on. Our annual Christmas Appeal greatly benefits children and adults who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Look at our website from mid November to get the details of how you can help. You can also support us by practical items of good quality, such as clothing, which are needed throughout the year for adults and children. Contact the INFS at 061 468033. Unfortunately due to safety requirements we cannot accept electric appliances.”
