PilotsTogether hit an important milestone this week. On September 2, 2020 we were awarded official charity status by the Charity Commission for England and Wales. This means that we are now able to formally push ahead with the next steps in our plan, including the crucial one of being able to accept financial donations.
Our team is busy setting up the systems that will allow people to donate to us online. We will make the process as simple as possible, allowing one-off payments and regular commitments. Donors will also be able to benefit from Gift Aid and tax effective giving (where permissible). We will be in touch with further updates when this goes live.
This is an incredible achievement in such short time, but time is of the essence as we face immediate needs from our community. Thank you to the team responsible for driving the application and pushing it through. Onwards and upwards.
