Charity Information

Inc. Gift Aid declaration form

The Scottish Orienteering Association is a charity, and one of the advantages of this is that the SOA can claim gift aid tax-relief on donations people make to the SOA. This includes the SOA part of your annual orienteering subs. The SOA has agreed to return this money to clubs for a minimum of three years, and potentially longer.
