// Fundraising

The Wayfarer Trust is committed to supporting the needs of artists - pastorally, professionally and financially.  To that end, Trustees of Wayfarer have re-affirmed their commitment to:



  • supporting artists financially, enabling them to play a key role on the frontline of the arts and media

  • fostering a more tangible sense of belonging through membership in The Wayfarer Community

  • supporting the ongoing Wayfarer Fellowship academic residency at St John’s College at the University of Durham

  • subsidising the cost of events for Wayfarers at Freswick Castle

  • meeting ongoing running costs of The Wayfarer Trust

// Tax Efficient Giving

We greatly appreciate your financial support, whether a one-time gift or a regular donation by standing order.



Basic Rate Taxpayers: The Wayfarer Trust is a registered Scottish Charity (No SC027212), which means that we are able to claim Gift Aid on all donations, provided a donor signs a Gift Aid declaration stating that he or she is a UK tax payer.  If you pay tax at the basic rate, Gift Aid applies to 25% of the value of your donation which means, for example, that a donation of £100 is currently worth £125 to The Wayfarer Trust. 



Higher Rate Taxpayers: Higher rate taxpayers can claim a tax rebate from the Inland Revenue on their charitable gifts.  The actual amount The Wayfarer Trust receives could be boosted significantly if a donor is willing to donate the tax rebate in addition to their gift.



Donors from USA & Canada: If you’re a taxpayer in the USA or Canada, please email here to find out how you can give to The Wayfarer Trust tax efficiently.
