Have you registered for Gift Aid? One form can make a big difference
At the Scottish Orienteering Association we recognise it has been a challenging year for everyone! We are asking that you help us raise funds through the option of Gift Aid.
As the SOA is a registered charity, Gift Aid allows us to claim extra funds from HMRC on any donations made to us – including your SOA membership fees – AS LONG AS the person donating the funds completes a declaration that they are a UK tax payer.
Every single declaration completed helps us gain extra funds to help us provide our service and further support clubs and events into 2023 and beyond.

I think I’ve made a Gift Aid declaration to the SOA in the past; do I really need to complete this?
If you’ve joined or renewed Scottish membership with British Orienteering, the British Orienteering membership system gives no option to make a Gift Aid declaration to the SOA, so please complete the form now.
If you used SI Entries to join the SOA only, you would have been given the option to make a declaration when joining but – sadly – some people didn’t select this option.
If you’re in ANY doubt please complete the form – we’ll happily receive a second declaration, rather than none at all!
