At Smart Works we pride ourselves in being a low-cost, efficient organisation with a small staff team to ensure that every penny we receive delivers real value to our funders and real worth to our clients.
We are committed to the continued innovation, expansion and refinement of our Smart Works service in London and we are passionate about the potential to bring it to more women around the UK, ensuring we reach those who are often hardest to help and most in need.
To do this we need financial support to run our highly effective business model. For our combined London and HQ operations, 97% of expenditure is spent on charitable work (Smart Works Charity Report and Accounts, 31 March 2016), which means money donated goes directly to supporting our front line services, helping women back into employment across the UK, by allowing them to look and feel confident, empowered and successful.
“Smart Works helped me to look and feel fabulous, ready to get back to work with such confidence that I felt I could conquer the world”
If you would like to make a financial donation to support London and our HQ, you can contribute in a number of different ways:
Set up a standing order
Regular committed support means so much to us and will enable us to plan our services more effectively. Click here to set up a standing order through our Just Giving page or contact us directly on 020 7288 1770.
One off donations
A single donation will enable us to help more women immediately. Donations by cheque made payable to Smart Works Charity and posted to Smart Works, 89 Shepperton Road, London, N1 3DF.
Payroll giving - Give as You Earn (GAYE)
Regularly donating a fixed sum of money from your salary is a simple way to give. It’s also the most tax effective because donations are deducted before you pay tax.
For example, if you are a 20% taxpayer and donate £15, only £12 comes out of your salary and the tax office pays the rest. Or if you are on a higher tax rate (45%), only £8.25 comes out of your salary and the tax office pays the rest.
Please contact your payroll office and ask if your company runs a Give As You Earn (GAYE) scheme and tell them that you would like to donate to Smart Works in London.
We would be so grateful for your corporate financial donation. Donations by cheque made payable to Smart Works Charity and posted to 89 Shepperton Road, N1 3DF or please do contact our UK Head of Partnerships.
