Give it Back George

03 Apr 2012

The VSB Foundation signs up to the Give it Back George campaign to reverse the cap on income tax relief announced in the recent Budget.

This cap on income tax relief will significantly reduce the income from donors and will impact particularly on large donations which are the genesis of new charitable trusts and foundations. The future of the voluntary and charity sector requires ongoing long term availability of finance, new independant funding streams such as charitable foundations are one way that new long term finance is created to support the sector. An income tax cap has the potential to undermine the development of new foundations and certainly it will reduce the income available.

It is mean spirited, short sighted and an attack on philanthropy at a time when the UK government is asking us all to engage by giving our time , money, and energies to charities and local communities.
