In Memoriam Donations
By making a donation to our charity in memory of a loved one or friend, you’ll ensure that for many years to come Jersey Cheshire Home can continue to enhance the lives of physically disabled adults in Jersey. Donations can be made in a variety of ways.
Many families encourage donations in lieu of flowers at their loved one’s funeral, and see it as a fitting way to honour those close to them, while supporting a cause dear to their heart. If you are arranging a funeral and wish to support Jersey Cheshire Home please either contact us directly or speak with your Funeral Director.
Many caring individuals are now choosing to mark their special occasions by asking friends and family, in lieu of gifts, to donate money to a chosen charity. So, on your wedding day, birthday or anniversary why not make the decision to give, rather than receive a special gift; one that will enable physically disabled adults in Jersey to reach their goals and enjoy life.
Your guests can make a donation to Jersey Cheshire Home in a variety of ways and we’ll help you communicate your wish to them by providing appropriate wording, branded donation cards and literature about our charity.
Wedding favours are also a lovely way to thank your guests on your wedding day. You and your partner can make a donation to Jersey Cheshire Home and express the thoughtful decision you made to give money to charity through donation cards at their place settings.

Corporate grants from trusts or foundations are a fantastic and valuable source of funding, but competition for these sources is fierce. Are you able to help us by facilitating a grant from your companies foundation or charity?
Many companies find charity match giving or funding a great way to support their staff in whatever fundraising they are doing for whatever the causes close to their heart.
It can also be a great way to increase employee engagement. Matching employees’ charitable activities can lead to improved staff productivity and loyalty, as well as boosting an employer’s public perception.
Matched giving schemes will normally involve pledging a sum of money relating to the amount their employee has raised for or donated to the charity of their choice. Some organisations will match funds on a £ for £ basis, others will stipulate what they are prepared to give.
You can make donations to a nominated charity directly from your salary.
If the accumulated amount over the year is £50 or more, the donation will qualify as a lump sum donation.
It is an easier way to give, as your employer will administer the scheme and you can spread your charitable giving over a year.
Your payroll will still provide your gross income (the amount before the charity deduction) to the Taxes Office and this is also the amount you must declare on your annual tax return.
You should also enter the details of the donation, along with any other qualifying donations to Jersey charities, on your personal tax return.
When you set up a lump sum donation payroll scheme you must ensure that the nominated charity is established in Jersey and exempt from income tax. The charity will be able to provide a letter from the Jersey Taxes Office confirming they ‘are exempt under Article 115(a)’ as proof of this.
When the total collected is given to the charity you must include a schedule with the following information for each employee who has donated:
You are responsible for the administration of the scheme, including keeping records of the donations for 6 years.
If you are below the tax threshold, exempt from income tax or a zero rated company you should not use these schemes, but just pay the charity the amount you want it to receive.
If you do make a payment using the above schemes you will have to pay income tax of the amount that the charity receives from the taxes office.
A 10% company would need to pay half of the amount the charity claims back.
