Major Gifts and Foundations

Brooke’s mission is to achieve both immediate and lasting change to the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules and the communities that depend on them. 

HELP ACCELERATE OUR MISSION

A gift of £5,000 or greater, made personally, or through your private fund or charitable trust, could help unlock the potential of communities around the world.  It can make a considerable difference to their 'invisible workers'.  Together, we can ensure your gift has the maximum impact to empower vulnerable equine owners and create sustainable change to the welfare of their horses, donkeys and mules.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MAJOR GIFTS & FOUNDATIONS

HOW DO I MAKE A MAJOR GIFT?
Major gifts may be made in a number of different ways including: making a single gift, setting up a regular donation, donating through your charitable Trust or Foundation, via matched giving or even a gift in kind. Contact our Philanthropy & Partnerships Managers to discuss your options. 

WILL MY GIFT BE RESTRICTED OR UNRESTRICTED?
That is entirely up to you. If you prefer to restrict your donation to a particular area of our work we would be more than happy to chat to you about our current projects. Such projects include our Global Farriery Project, Empowering Women in India and Building Water & Health Points in Ethiopia. Please get in touch to find out more.

WHAT IF I WANT TO GIFT LESS THAN £5,000?
Friends of Brooke is an initiative for supporters who want to get closer to our work in the field and support this work with annual donations between £1,000 and £5,000.

AM I ELIGIBLE FOR TAX RELIEF?
Every £1,000 you donate could be worth £1,250 to Brooke. If you are a UK taxpayer we can claim Gift Aid on your donations. 

WHAT IF I AM A HIGHER RATE TAXPAYER?
If you are a higher rate taxpayer (40% and above) you could be entitled to a tax rebate on your donation worth the difference between the basic and higher rate of tax - find out more at HMRC. For instance a donation of £1,000 from a UK taxpayer is worth an additional £250 under Gift Aid to the Charity. However, as a higher rate taxpayer you are entitled to claim the difference between what we claim at 20% basic rate of tax and your own tax rate. Therefore on a donation of £1,000 you too could claim £250 from HMRC. Please contact your accountant for more information.
