Sports Fundraising new platform to help local Sport

It is time to prepare for the launch of the new Podium Partners website. We are looking to recruit new appeals to kick start the launch of the new website .Podium Partners Logo

 Wiltshire and Swindon Sport (WASP) has an innovative fundraising scheme for the benefit of those playing and involved in sport in Wiltshire and Swindon.

In association with Podium Partners, WASP want to help local people to develop their potential and to be able to support clubs looking for new equipment or facilities. This will add to a wide range of services already offered by Wiltshire and Swindon Sport that support sport locally.

WASP offer the opportunity for the local community sports organisations and athletes to promote their appeal on the Podium Partners Sports Funding website, enabling them to raise funds by bringing their appeal to the attention of the wider public and businesses.

Working with a charity such as Podium Partners allows donations to be eligible for Gift Aid which increases the value of each donation by reclaiming the basic rate of tax on the donation at no extra cost. This could convert every £10 donated to as much as £12.50* This means you can get a 20% better return on donations that other such platforms like - Just Giving, as the fees are taken from this gift aid not the amount donated. Therefore £100 will become £118 to you !

Steve Boocock CEO of WASP says “It’s a great new initiative and we have already had a really positive response from local clubs and athletes who are looking for funding to support their aspirations”.

Our objectives are as follows

  • To advance the education in sport of all people by the provision of support, assistance and encouragement, (so as to enable them to fulfill their potential)
  • To advance the education, development and improvement of people (mainly) through the provision of grants so as to develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible citizens.
  • In addition, the trustees have the power to do anything which is calculated to further its objects or is conducive or incidental to doing so. 

We can now accept applications from any person or organisation where the purpose of the campaign is to “educate, develop and improve” through sport those taking part (where sport is defined as all types of physical activity that people do to keep healthy or for enjoyment)

It could be a campaign to get elderly people more active through Nordic Walking or Bowls, ethnic minority women playing running or disadvantaged kids enjoying cricket endless applications.
