Please make sure you claim Gift Aid

The Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) is a charity and can claim gift aid tax relief on the SOA part of your annual membership fees. Even better, the SOA has agreed to return this money to clubs for a minimum of 3 years, and potentially longer.

Gift aid can only be claimed through completion of a gift aid form by each member. You can do this online with SOA. The process is so easily, takes a few minutes to complete and you receive a nice thank you email from SOA once done. Just follow this link

For every gift aid form completed, FVO receives more money. So what’s stopping you?

And if you are still confused

Please contact Neil, our membership secretary.
