How to Give
Regular gifts to the Architectural Association allow the School to plan further ahead, in the knowledge that committed alumni and other individuals have pledged their support across the year. Such gifts, via banker's order or payroll giving, are extremely valuable.
You can make regular gifts to the AA via:
Banker's orders/Standing orders
These can be paid at fixed intervals (for example, monthly, quarterly or annually) for a set period of time (for example, five, ten or 20 years) or indefinitely. Banker's orders/standing orders provide a formal long-term pledge of support to the AA.
This is a means of making a donation directly from your salary before income tax is calculated and deducted. This way you automatically get tax relief at your top rate of tax, and the AA receives the gross value. For example, if you are a basic taxpayer, a monthly gift of £5.00 to the AA would effectively cost you only £3.90. Please contact your own payroll office to enquire whether they participate in Payroll Giving.
All one-off gifts are of great benefit to the AA, whether small or large. These can be made by cheque, credit card, Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) card or voucher. Please make all cheques and CAF vouchers payable to The Architectural Association Foundation.
