Wildlife Ball 2020 – A Global Gala

A Virtually Unmissable Evening

Friday 6 November 2020. From 8pm

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s (DSWF) annual Wildlife Ball is a pivotal fundraising event in our calendar and a wonderful opportunity to celebrate wildlife, champion conservation and turn the tide on extinction.

On behalf of the DSWF family and Board of Trustees, we invite you to join us on November 6th 2020 at 8pm GMT for a Virtually Unmissable Evening of entertainment, awareness and an exclusive silent auction by Hosting at Home.

Last year we raised over £160,000 thanks to the incredible generosity of people like you.

This year your support is more important than ever. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic however, things are going to be a little different but we do hope you will join us in evolving to end extinction.

Then from 8pm GMT tune in live with your guests for an exciting evening hosted by acclaimed zoologist and BBC presenter Mark Carwardine, broadcast directly to your home via our partners at Givergy.

You can expect an incredible programme of entertainment including a live performance by celebrated mezzo-soprano and BBC personality Laura Wright, environmental updates from our CEO, project partners in the field and celebrity friends, and an exclusive silent auction including an array of artistic treasures and money can’t buy experiences.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking this box I confirm that I want to gift aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past four years to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. I am a UK taxpayer and I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year, it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
