Make a donation to BYC
Brighton Youth Centre is a charity organisation that relies mainly on generating our own funds, with funding grants making up a fairly small percentage of our overall income.
We believe strongly in making our activities for young people accessible to all. We don’t charge entry to our youth clubs, and entry fee to the skatepark is heavily subsidised. We also host regular events, activities and workshops for free or as little as possible.
We ask you to please consider donating to our cause. Donations are a big way of helping us to keep running, and offer great opportunities to young people of all backgrounds across Brighton & Hove.
If you would like to help us out, please visit our Localgiving page. We urge you to also add Gift Aid to your donation, which gives us an extra 25% of the total amount, at no cost to you!
Thank you for reading,
The entire BYC Team
Remember Brighton Youth Centre in your will
You can help us continue our work by leaving a legacy in your will. Gifts in our supporters’ wills are making a HUGE difference.
Make a free online will
With our partner makeawillonline.co.uk, we offer a free online wills service: www.makeawillonline.co.uk/byc. All wills are checked by a will-writer and covered by £2m insurance. To help us with our campaign, details of your legacy will be shared with us: your name, your contact details, the amount of the legacy and the date you made the will.
If you already have a will…
If you do already have a will and want to leave a gift to us, contact your solicitor and let them know your intentions. You can work with them either to (a) make a new will or (b) a shorter and less expensive “codicil”.
Please ensure that your solicitor uses our full name: Brighton Youth Centre, our charity number: 1098557, and our registered address: 64 Edward Street, Brighton, BN2 0JR.
If you don’t currently have a will…
If you haven’t already made a will you can make one and leave a gift of a specific amount of money or a proportion of your estate to us and other charities. Once your family and friends are catered for, anything you can provide us will make a huge difference to our work.
Did you know that people who leave more than 10% of their estate to charity receive inheritance tax benefits?
If your estate is liable for inheritance tax (see here), we suggest you speak to your solicitor to discuss making a will and leaving a gift to us. If you don’t have a solicitor, you can go to http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ to search for a local solicitor.
If you have complicated needs in your will – for example: dependent relatives/ friends, property overseas, trust income or ongoing legal issues – we suggest you speak to a solicitor.
