Funding of PAT’s work relies wholly on the generous sponsorship of a number of organisations connected with the pensions business.  We have no income from any other source.  But we need more financial support if we are to develop further the scope of the Pensions Archive – for example by digitising more of our records, to make them more easily accessible to a wider audience.

You personally can help by becoming a Friend of PAT, which means you can confirm your interest in our work, without committing to any involvement beyond that.  But, of course, you would be kept up to date with developments by way of our periodic newsletters, as well as being invited to attend PAT events.

To become a Friend, we simply ask you to make an annual donation to PAT of at least £25. Unless you advise otherwise, we will then include your name on our website as a ‘Friend of PAT’. To set up a Standing Order, please fill out the form on page 4 of our Friends of PAT leaflet, or, if you prefer, you can make your donation by way of a cheque payment.

In either case, please consider making your donation under Gift Aid, by signing the Gift Aid declaration on page 5 of the leaflet.  This enables PAT to reclaim, from Inland Revenue, an amount equal to 25% of the actual donation, without extra cost to you.  If you are a higher tax payer, you can reclaim from the Inland Revenue an amount equal to the difference between the higher and basic tax paid upon you donation.  The only requirement is that the total donations under Gift Aid may not exceed the total income tax and capital gains tax you have paid in any tax year.

Please return your completed form to The Pensions Archive Trust, 88 Battersea Place, Albert Bridge Road, London, SW11 4DT. For queries about Friends of PAT, contact: alanherbert@btconnect.com
