As indicated previously, donations should wherever possible be directed to the Development Office. Whereas, from an accounting viewpoint it may initially seem simpler and quicker to receipt and bank the funds yourself, you must also consider:
- The significance of the gift from the donor's perspective. It is important that we ensure that they receive an appropriate level of recognition both now and in the future.
- The opportunity to maximise the donation through Gift Aid.
Please notify the Development Office and the Finance Division if any assets are received as donations.
