UCL Amyloidosis Research Fund
All university based medical research depends on funds that are
fought for in open competition (grants) from the Government-funded Medical
Research Council and other charitable bodies. Their renewal depends on a
successful research programme and the Amyloidosis Centre has an excellent track
record in this respect. However, there are constant shortfalls and every penny
from other sources is received with sincere gratitude, and is used specifically
and in its entirety for amyloidosis research.
UCL Medical School is part of University College London (UCL) which is a registered charity. Due to changes in the Budget nearly all gifts given to UCL now qualify for the Gift Aid Scheme. This increases the amount of the gift by 28% without any extra cost to the donor. It does so by allowing UCL to claim back the basic rate tax paid by the donor. To qualify for Gift Aid the donor must be a UK taxpayer and his/her combined income and capital gains tax bill must equal or exceed the amount UCL claims back on the gift. The gift can be of any amount and applies to one-off gifts and regular gifts made over a number of years. For UCL to claim the tax benefits the donor must make a "Gift Aid Declaration". One declaration will cover all future gifts and may be cancelled at any time. Cheques should be drawn in favour of "UCL Development Fund". This money is then transferred to the Amyloidosis Research Fund together with the reclaimed tax. If a donor does not qualify for the Gift Aid Scheme or does not wish to contribute in this way, cheques should be made payable to "UCL Amyloidosis Research Fund".
