Make a regular gift to a cause close to your heart
Did you know one of the best ways to support the work of Epilepsy Scotland is by setting up a regular gift? Regular donations allow us to anticipate our future income. This means we can plan ahead knowing our current services are secure and also develop new services.
Your regular donation can be as little or as much as you like. We are grateful for any amount you can give.
How can I donate?
Alternatively, you could donate through your employers’ Payroll Giving scheme. If you are a UK tax payer, when you make a donation through Payroll Giving, Epilepsy Scotland automatically receives up to 88% more. You can set up your donation online now.
If you already make a regular donation and wish to increase the amount, please contact fundraising.
Gift Aid it! Making your gift go further
Don’t forget you can make your gift work harder at no extra cost to you by ticking the Gift Aid declaration box on the standing order form
If you make a regular monthly donation of £5 a month i.e. £60 a year under Gift Aid, we will be able to reclaim £15 over the year. So you can see how quickly Gift Aid mounts up.
For an explanation on how Gift Aid works go to our Gift Aid it! page.
How your monthly gift helps

£200 funds advertising for our Information Events
We regularly hold public information events all over Scotland. Access to services and information particularly in rural areas can be limited so our road shows are a welcome source of information.
Staff are on hand at these events to give face to face support and information.
£200 will help us contact interested parties and the general public and publicise our events in advance.
