Arcangelo Gifts policy

  • Arcangelo is authorised to receive gifts as a registered charity in England & Wales No. 1139783.
  • Arcangelo is authorised to claim UK Gift Aid on eligible gifts under HMRC Charities Reference No. XT30297
  • In order to fulfil and develop its charitable aims and purposes, Arcangelo appeals for gifts to support:
    • a) Ongoing core costs
    • b) Projects including but not limited to recordings, and the Arcangelo New Ensemblists programme.
  • Core cost fundraising targets are set annually by Arcangelo’s board of trustees. Project-based targets are established at the initial planning stages for the respective project and approved by the board on a rolling basis.
  • Arcangelo accepts direct gifts in the form of cash, cheque and online transfer via BACS or PayPal. We also accept gifts made via third-party platforms Charities Aid Foundation, Virgin Money Giving, and Amazon Smile UK, and via the King Baudouin Foundation US ‘Network for Good’ for US taxpayers.
  • All gifts made to Arcangelo are restricted or unrestricted as per UK charity law. Unrestricted gifts will be allocated by Arcangelo in best favour of its charitable aims and purposes and with the oversight of the board of trustees. The terms of restricted gifts are defined either by the donor or by the terms of an Arcangelo appeal, and restricted gifts are allocated as per these terms. In the event that restricted gift income exceeds the costs of the project, Arcangelo will discuss with the donor as to how such excess may be reallocated to e.g. applicable project overheads.
  • Arcangelo declares all restricted and unrestricted income received year-on-year in its Annual Accounts, filed with Companies House and with the Charities Commission.
  • Arcangelo stores and handles all personal donor data submitted with donations directly to Arcangelo in line with its Privacy Policy. We do not disclose any donor data or activity without specific affirmative consent. Data submitted with donations to Arcangelo via third-party platforms are stored and handled in line with the Privacy Policies of those organisations:
  • Where donors provide specific affirmative consent, Arcangelo will always ensure every opportunity within its control for the proper crediting and acknowledgment of gifts and support including but not limited to its website, social media, and printed assets and materials including CD booklets.
