Rhythms of the World is a registered charity and in 2012 the festival alone cost over £300,000 in hard cash to put on. Donations from the public - organisations and individuals - contribute towards these costs and without your help the event would not be possible.
You can make a donation to Rhythms of the World via Charities Aid Foundation website using a credit or debit card. If you are a UK taxpayer and select Gift Aid and increase your gifts by up to 28% by reclaiming tax from the Inland Revenue. Go to the Rhythms of the World profile page at www.cafonline.org and select donate.
You can now donate to Rhythms of the World through the Give as you Earn scheme. You can ask your employer to make monthly donations, say £5 or £10 pounds, from you salary to ROTW. The donation is not subject to income tax — so it will cost you less than you donate! For example, if you pay regular tax at 22% and you donate £10 per month, it costs you £7.80 by ROTW benefits to the turn of £10.
You only need to ask for the donation to go to “Rhythms of the World”. (There is a reference number GYE 450 848 but so long as you spell Rhythms correctly it is not strictly necessary.) It's as simple as that. The money that you and Mr Brown donate will go a long way not only for the ROTW festival but increasingly for arts, music and community projects over the whole year.
