Broom Foundation is an independent registered charity devoted to you and the charities you donate to. With close to thirty years experience providing services for the administration of charity accounts, we ensure clients benefit from our personal and supportive service at all times.
The advantages of a charity voucher account are manifold, facilitating & guaranteeing a simple, swift, streamlined and secure manner to create and manage your charitable donations.
Limited companies pay less Corporation Tax when using a company charity account. Your company can claim tax relief by deducting the value of the donations from the total business profits before paying tax. Companies and Charitable Trusts also benefit from an efficient and streamlined system, having only one charity account to keep records for, thereby being relieved from keeping track of each charitable contribution.
Broom Foundation is a charity voucher system enabling donations to be distributed with ease to any charity of your choice. Our charity account lets you manage all your donations to charity in one place, and works just like a bank account. You receive monthly statements, and by registering for our online account portal, you will also be able to check your balance, view transactions, credit your account, order voucher books and download statements with ease.
Using Broom Foundation as your charity giving medium will ensure your charitable contributions are made in a most safe and secure method. We provide secure accounts with both our account software and online portals being encrypted and protected for your security. Established in 1986 and currently distributing over £2m on behalf of our clients to charities each year, we specialise in swift and secure distribution of donations to charities nationwide.
Charity vouchers allow you to distribute funds to charity with simplicity. Pre paid vouchers in various convenient denominations as well as voucher cheque books enable hassle free donations to charities with the full donation value passed on to the charity. New and replacement books can be ordered via email or via your online account easily.
Your donation to Broom Foundation can be made via Bacs, card payment, cheque or cash. Registered online clients have the ability to top up directly online too. Upon your account being credited, you will have the ability to make donations immediately to charities of your choice. Donations to charities can be made via one-off direct payments, standing order or charity vouchers. Registered online clients are able to create and generate these online.
As online charity giving has taken great strides in recent years, largely due to our pioneering the Broom Foundation web portal and app, more and more charities have taken to reaching out and accepting charitable donations in this method too.
A Charity Donor Card, is the next step along this route, ensuring secure, greatly enhanced and simplified charitable giving even further. The simplicity and security of using a Charity Donor card are enviable … no fumbling for your voucher books, no searching for the working pen, no using personal credit cards… BroomPay is the solution.
This is a genuine banking product being issued via QPay under authority of Mastercard inc, with bank grade security and automated transaction confirmation receipts on each swipe. In addition, we have developed the software for this debit card to be fully integrated with your Broom Foundation client account. All card management features have been added to a new card management tab on the portal, and as expected, all debit transactions will be visible on your webpage as well as on your monthly statements, clearly defining the charity they have been donated to.
We invite you to register your interest here.
We reserve the right to cancel your BroomPay Donor Card contract and withdraw your card if:
1. We suspect attempted use for any purpose where the donor is to paying for fees, benefits or services received, and/or usage contrary to our regulatory t’s & c’s as shown at https://online.broomfoundation.org.uk/Donor_Charity_Cardholder_TCs.pdf
2. Total debit card spend per annum is below £100.
3. Atypical lost & stolen card reports and cancellations with subsequent re-registration.
As an employee, you can utilise the GAYE/Payroll Giving scheme to have your donation deducted from your earnings. This allows for gross donations to be made from your salary prior to calculation and deduction of income tax, leaving you to pay less tax overall, and eliminating the need for a tax return to claim higher rate tax relief. If your employer is registered on a Payroll Giving scheme, please ask them to arrange for the funds to be transferred to Broom Foundation. It’s plain sailing and hassle-free from there!
Broom Foundation provides the maximum level of service at a minimal cost to you. Administrative costs are incurred in the process, for which we take a fee. Our standard commission is 5% off your gross donation with this being reduced and rates tiered for larger donations dependent on account turnover and usage. Unlike many charity service providers, this is the only account charge payable; the charity receives the full value of your donation.
Broom Foundation is proudly associated with local projects and institutions; our current liabilities & overheads being below 2% of the total income, with surplus administration charges and a share of profits being distributed to selected local charities at periodic intervals.
