Fundraising

1st Fareham Scouts is a registered charity and is completely self funded, this means we need to fundraise to provide everything we need for day to day Scouting.

You can support us by encouraging your Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer to attend fundraising activities or by any of the following methods:

Gift Aid

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a simple government initiative which allows donors to increase the value of their donations at no extra cost to them. For every pound given, charities can get an extra 25 pence from HM Revenue & Customs, helping donations go further.

As a charity 1st Fareham Scouts can claim gift aid on subscriptions and other donations. If you’re a UK taxpayer you can donate 25 pence in every pound at no cost to yourself. Simply fill in the form below or complete the Gift Aid declaration on OSM and we will do the rest.
