The process of donating money to the 2019 Festival is very straightforward and clearly outlined in the 2019 Festival Guideline.
Wherever possible it is vital to take advantage of the Gift Aided Scheme. Donations can be made direct to the RMTGB from funds held in your Lodge Relief Chest using the Blue transfer form and must be accompanied by a breakdown of who has donated, and how much, within the total transferred.
Donations can be made using the 2019 Festival Donation form for both single and regular donations. Donations can be made using the Envelope Scheme and should initially be accompanied by a Donor Verification Schedule.
Proceeds for Lodge Raffles can go direct by cheque, to the RMTGB but will not attract Gift Aid.
Donations can be made from Lodge Benevolent or Welfare funds but will not attract Gift Aid.
In short, however you wish to donate will be acceptable to the Charity.
There is no need to pass your donations through the Provincial Benevolent Fund as the RMTGB will be managing the process of claiming Gift Aid where applicable, and providing up to date financial information to our Province.
Should you have any difficulties in identifying the correct method for your contribution contact the Provincial Grand Charity Steward, Chris Noble,firstname.lastname@example.org
