£20 donation in addition to ordinary membership
Enhance your membership by becoming a Benefactor of the BDS and enable us to do more for the conservation of dragonflies, damselflies and their wetland habitats. For an additional £20 per annum you will enjoy all the usual membership benefits with the added satisfaction that you are contributing further to our vitally-important work.
By agreeing that your subscription or donation is given under the Gift Aid scheme you are helping the BDS by enabling us to reclaim the notional tax on the amount given. Currently this is worth an additional 25% on top of the amount given and you incur no additional cost. You do need to pay income tax or capital gains tax equal to the amount that we can reclaim to be able to sign up for the scheme. Signing up is particularly attractive if you are fortunate enough to pay tax at above the basic rate because you can reclaim from HM Revenue & Customs the additional tax paid above the basic rate.
