Maryhill Mini Multis Residents Association require funding for their much needed play area, community garden and growing space.
The Residents Association with help from Maryhill Housing Association are providing this new community space in an area considered to be one of the most deprived in Scotland.
This project will transform a piece of vacant ground into a brightly coloured play area and vibrant community garden. The location is next to a community centre and near to high rise flats.
The community spaces project is the best way to improve our community, improve the quality of people’s lives and breathe life into what is otherwise a bleak and austere landscape.
We are seeking a small amount of funding to complete the playpark and community garden and to be able to put on a launch event along with other events throughout 2016.
If the amount you wish to donate is not listed on this page then please visit the Donate to a park page, choose Park Fund and type Maryhill Mini-Multi in the Park field then type "maryhill mini-multi" in the Why did you want to support this park/city fund? field.
MyParkScotland provides a safe and easy way to make a donation to support this great project.
To make a donation, click on ‘Support Now’ and select your choice of Gift Level. If you are a UK tax payer, selecting a Level which includes Gift Aid means that we can top up your donation at no extra cost to you. Adding Gift Aid typically means that your online donation of, for example, £10 becomes a park investment of £11.53 (after paying platform and management fees). You need to provide your address to enable us to claim Gift Aid.
Gift Aid is a Government scheme which allows charities to increase the value of donations made to them. Gift Aid makes a huge difference to small charities and local organisations, but if they aren’t registered with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator and HMRC, they can’t claim Gift Aid (and many that could claim Gift Aid don’t because they find the process too complicated). At MyParkScotland, we take care of the claim process on eligible donations, so that the Friends and community groups can concentrate on the great work they do in our parks.
We use PayPal to manage online donations and they charge a small platform fee for handling donations. We work hard to keep our fees as low as possible to make sure that as much of each donation as possible is invested in our parks. For donations without Gift Aid, at least 92% of your donation is invested in parks. MyParkScotland is a not-for-profit registered Scottish charity (No. SC045424) and any fees taken go towards covering essential operating costs.
