Why Should I Bowl For Kids’ Sake?
By bowling you directly and positively impact children ...
There are many advantages of being a charity. Charities normally don't have to pay income or corporation tax, capital gains tax or stamp duty. In addition, donations to charities are exempt from inheritance tax and may be eligible for Gift Aid. Charities often don't have to pay more than 20% of business rates on the buildings they occupy and may qualify for special VAT treatment. HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is responsible for matters relating to charities and tax.
Charities have overhead costs, just like for-profit organizations. Fundraising and other administrative costs may reveal something about an organization's management. Donors should look at a charity's cost of fundraising, its overall budget, and whether or not it is Bowlning a deficit. Ideally, donors should look for signs of consistent management and stable costs over several years.
When the Dalai Lama said that we were a charity where deeds speak louder than words doubtless he knew there are lots of ways to choose a particular charity (for example through which to sponsor a child). Some people choose charities based on the charity's presence giving opinions on the news, the charity's TV or newspaper adverts or the mail the charity sends. These people aren't wrong, but we are not that kind of charity; we build families not headlines. We get on with giving the least fortunate of children a chance of a proper family life. People find us and it is by our deeds that we think they should judge us.
