Transforming Edinbugh

The IMPACT Centre will be transformative in its effect. It is a once-in-a-century opportunity for Edinburgh.  To be realised, the project depends on financial support for our £10m fundraising campaign.  We have already secured gifts and pledges towards this total and now invite your support.

Your support

Donations to our campaign will be vital in creating The IMPACT Centre - a new venue in Edinburgh that will be amongst the best in Europe. Your support will add to that of our key funders, the Scottish and UK Governments and Dunard Fund, the Edinburgh-based charitable trust.

Contributing to the project represents a once-in-a-century opportunity to play a part in transforming Edinburgh's provision for performers and for audiences.  We hope that you will help in the founding of the IMPACT Centre.

The project

HELP REALISE THE VISION

IMPACT Scotland is a registered charity, accepting grants, gifts in cash or shares and legacies. Tax-effective gifts may be made to IMPACT Scotland and donors may themselves benefit from the tax advantages of charitable giving.

Please contact Sandy Richardson, Development Director, to learn more about the project and discuss how you can help.

How can you support IMPACT Scotland

Gift aid donation

If you are a UK tax payer, you may support the project by making a Gift Aid donation. This means that we may reclaim from HMRC the basic rate tax on your gift (at no cost to you). This increases the value of your gift, so that a gift of £100 is worth £125 to the campaign. For a higher-rate tax payer, you receive a tax advantage which represents the difference between the basic tax rate and your own. (Thus a £100 donation would represent a £75 "cost" to 40% tax payer).

Gift aid donation

Cash donation

If you are not a UK tax payer, a donation of cash, shares or property that may be realised for the benefit of the campaign is very welcome.

Cash donation

Gift of shares

Share giving can be amongst the most tax-effective means of support, especially if the shares have appreciated greatly in value in your ownership. Giving shares means you get Income Tax relief on the value of the shares as well as exemption from Capital Gains Tax on disposal. We can advise on the process and would be very pleased to receive financial support in this way.

Overseas donation

Supporters in the USA may make tax-deductible gifts through a 501 (C) (3) incorporated organisation which is able to direct support to IMPACT Scotland.
