In addition, if you
are a UK taxpayer, The Provincial Society can
benefit from Gift Aid as described on the UK
Government’s Direct Gov website as follows:
“When an individual, sole
trader or partnership gives money to a charity
through Gift Aid, then you (i.e. the charity) can
take their donation – which is money they’ve already
paid tax on – and reclaim basic rate tax from HM

amount before tax was deducted. Similar arrangements
are available to those who are higher tax rate
payers. For further information, go to
