One growing part of Links’ work is Act4You. This is where we act as a charitable umbrella for churches, individuals, missionaries, organisations and businesses for their overseas charitable activities. By handling their accounts for them, they can fulfil their vision without the difficulty of forming a charitable trust.
If you are interested in opening an Act4You account, please get in touch using the contact form here or call the office to find out more. If your ministry meets our criteria, we’ll open an account in your name. This account is used to receive money from your donors, from which we collate and apply for all your Gift Aid tax reclaims.
All monies are held under a separate designated account and paid out only on instruction from authorised agents. Links has expertise in overseas transfers and can, on request, send regular or one-off payments.
A small management fee is charged four times annually and statements are sent to clients each quarter. Our account holders find that this is more cost effective and easier than setting up their own charity.
You can make donations to one of our Act4You account holders in several ways: You can send a cheque to the Links office, make a payment though online banking, or click on the Act4You icon below to make a payment through PayPal. Whichever way you choose to pay, please let us know exactly who you would like your donation to go to so we can make sure we correctly pass it on. If you send a cheque, please just put a note with it, but if you pay online please send us this information by email. If you use Paypal there is text box you can write in to specify account. You open it up by clicking on the ‘Please specify ACT4YOU account’ link on the final checkout page. Unfortunately, putting your surname as a reference in any transaction does not tell us who should benefit from your funds. Thank you.
