The IAOBF depends upon voluntary donations. As far as possible, it makes payments from interest earned on deposits but it may, if necessary, make payments from capital. Donations, large or small, are always welcomed and acknowledged.

How to donate:

Many subscribers to Organists’ Review, the IAO’s quarterly magazine, include a donation with their annual subscription renewal.

Many organists’ associations and societies affiliated to the IAO make an annual collection for the IAOBF; others arrange special events in aid of the Fund. Individuals may also, by agreement with the Secretary, arrange events in support of the Fund, provided that they make a profit: the Fund cannot be responsible for any loss incurred.

Individual donations may be made by cheque payable to 'The IAO Benevolent Fund', sent to the Treasurer, whose address is shown opposite.

The IAOBF is a registered charity, No 216533, so UK taxpayers may elect to complete a Gift Aid declaration for single or multiple donations in the form shown below, which will add 25% to their donation at no extra cost to themselves

Many donors have included the IAOBF in their will. If you have done so, please notify the Treasurer, so that he can ensure that your instructions are carried out. Alternatively, he can supply you with a suitable form of words for inclusion in your will.
