NASS does not receive any government funding and relies solely on donations from its members and supporters to carry out our work for people affected by AS.
We know that many companies support and encourage their employees' fundraising efforts. Here are someways that you and your company can help NASS to keep doing more for people with AS.
Give as you earn
Various companies operate payroll giving programmes, such as Give As You Earn, that make it easy to donate on a regular basis.
There is a tax advantage to the employee as the donation is withdrawn before you pay tax.
Ask your payroll supervisor or accounts department if your organisation has set up a payroll giving programme. If they don't have one there is useful information on how to set one up on the Payroll Centre website at www.payrollgivingcentre.org.uk.
Many companies offer matched funding schemes, matching pound for pound the money you raise through events and activities that you organise such as cake sales and sporting event. Ask your company today to support your fundraising for NASS.
Charity of the Month or Year and Corporate Donations
Many companies will make a corporate donation to support the causes that affect their employees.
Working at Height's Managing Director, Ottie Whittle, has been a NASS member for many years and chose NASS as his charity of the year for 2012. Leon Wheeler, through his company, ICC, has donated a laptop for our Christmas Raffle.
