Thrive Online Appeal

Our world is in lockdown. COVID-19 is changing everything. For some, the challenge is overwhelming, causing a tragic surge in depression, addictions, and domestic violence.

This distanced, suffering world needs the Three Jewels more than ever.

The problem is that Triratna centres are closed. The core of what we’ve offered the world for 50 years relies on face to face contact: practising the Dharma with friends in centres or on retreat.

With no classes happening our dana bowls lie empty. Some centres risk going under within a few months. Our Indian sangha are especially challenged as direct debit is undeveloped and most giving is face to face.

We need your help so that our Triratna sangha continues to thrive, online.

We need committed Triratna Buddhists like you give, ideally each month for the next year.

Please help us raise £200,000 so that:

  • The Buddhist Centre Online can offer online collective meditation and inspiration £60,000
  • Ordination and youth teams in India, Australia and New Zealand can inspire and train people online £82,000
  • Sikkha can share best practice in online Dharma teaching £13,000
  • Windhorse Publications can give away free e-Dharma books £8,000
  • Triratna’s International Council can coordinate our global response, including advice for centres on crisis cash flow management and online fundraising £33,000
  • Indian Movement Coordinator Amritsiddhi can coordinate a national emergency food aid programme £4,000

Together, we can reach out to a world in need.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you.

I want FutureDharma to claim Gift Aid on all donations I have made over the past four years and in the future, unless I notify you otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my charitable donations in that tax year, then it is my responsibility to pay any difference. FutureDharma will claim 25p in Gift Aid on every £1 I give.

What is Gift Aid?

A Gift Aid declaration allows Future Dharma to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Future Dharma we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Future Dharma 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.
