Canaries COVID-19 Community Project

Helping vulnerable people in Norfolk impacted by COVID-19

The Canaries COVID-19 Community Support Project has been set up to support people in Norfolk to respond and recover from the crisis.

Norwich City Football Club players, senior staff, owners and directors have each donated to the project, raising over £200k plus gift aid which will be used in a number of ways to provide support to the community, working with several partners.

The project has three core objectives:

Response – the first phase of the project is under way to help local authorities, charities and support groups combat the short-term problems during lock down such as limited access to essential items for vulnerable people.

Recover – as time progresses, we expect the project emphasis to move from providing short-term care such as food parcels, towards helping those who have been impacted in the longer term by inactivity, poor mental health, or a loss of employment. We already run projects that tackle these issues and will look to increase our work in these areas using fundraising income to the COVID-19 project.

If you wish to help us boost the reach of the project and help those affected in Norfolk, please donate to the Canaries COVID-19 Community Project by clicking donate below.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Norwich City Community Sports Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Norwich City Community Sports Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Norwich City Community Sports Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Norwich City Community Sports Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Norwich City Community Sports Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
