Get Wet, Get Dirty, Get Wild this summer at Kinneil Estate.
Falkirk Community Trust have secured funding to run a number of exciting events across the summer months of 2017 and we want your support to be able to organise events for the summer of 2018.
PAY IT FORWARD - If you have enjoyed a free event this year at Kinneil Estate please consider making a donation to enable us to run similar events next year.
This ‘Pay what you Can’ approach let’s you rate the experience you had by adjusting your charitable donation to reflect how happy you are.
As a charity we also benefit as you can gift aid your donation which releases additional funds for us at no cost to yourself. The more donations we get the more events we’ll be able to run in 2018 so please consider giving what you can to help us continue providing fun opportunities for local families.
We’ve listed some suggested donations but if the exact amount you wish to donate is not listed on this page then please visit the Donate to a park page, choose Park Fund and then type a message starting with "Wild About Kinneil" in the Why did you want to support this park/city fund? field.
You can now donate to the Wild About Kinneil project by TEXT. Just text the project code (KINN60) plus an amount to 70070 – for example: 'KINN60 £5' to donate £5. You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10. If you wish to Gift Aid your donation please REPLY to the Gift Aid text.
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.
