How can I help Pothi Seva financially?
Pothi Seva is run entirely on voluntary donations. We do not have a set fee or hourly rate for the service we provide. This system allows us to offer professional quality conservation treatments to members of the wider community regardless of their means to afford it.
Financial donations are greatly appreciated. The best way to donate regularly is to set up a standing order via your bank. You are also welcome to send donations using the PayPal button. Standing orders are preferable as Paypal transfers incur a small charge. Please ensure you also complete the Gift Aid form found here.

Is Pothi Seva registered for Gift Aid?
Pothi Seva is registered with HMRC under reference EW90888 and can claim Gift Aid relief on your donations. This amounts to 25% additional money towards the seva and so we would humbly request that anyone making a donation who is a UK taxpayer (working and paying Income Tax for example) completes a Gift Aid declaration which is available as a simple online Google Form here.
If you have any questions about the form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I claim Gift Aid on my donations to Pothi Seva?
If you pay tax at the higher and additional rates of tax (broadly if your annual income is more than £45,000) you can claim additional tax relief by completing a tax return or asking HMRC to update your tax code.
If you need any further instructions on how to do this, our Treasurer Pavandip Singh Dhillon can help you. Simply send your query via email to email@example.com.
What if I do not pay tax and cannot make donations eligible for Gift Aid?
In this case, you can make a donation by using the bank details above. However, if you start to become a taxpayer, please don’t forget to complete the Gift Aid declaration.
Do you publish your annual accounts?
Yes, please see the accounts posted here. All contributions are applied wholly to seva projects and no one is paid for their seva or expenses incurred.
