Introducing the Roman Baths Foundation

The Roman Baths Foundation supports projects at the Roman Baths that go beyond the everyday.

Donate today and your gift will help:

  • Reveal new areas of the Roman Baths
  • Share more of the collections
  • Create more events, programmes and activities for all to enjoy.

Less than 1% of our income is spent on running the Foundation meaning your donation has a greater impact.

The Roman Baths Foundation is a registered charity No. 1163044. The first project the Foundation is supporting is the Archway Project

If you are small or medium-sized business you can also donate through Work for Good. You can also donate by cheque. Please make your cheque payable to ‘The Roman Baths Foundation’ and send the cheque with a completed donation form to The Roman Baths Foundation, The Pump Room, Stall Street, Bath, BA1 1LZ.

What is gift aid?

The Roman Baths Foundation is a charity and if you are a UK taxpayer, you can add Gift Aid to your donation. This means the Foundation can reclaim 25p for every £1 you give. Gift Aid is a government scheme and you can find out more from HMRC’s website.

Do I qualify for Gift Aid?

You must be a UK Tax payer. This means you must have paid Income or Capital Gains Tax in the UK. If you are a higher-rate tax payer you can also claim additional tax relief. For higher rate tax payers (paying tax at 40%) this works out as 25p for every £1 you donate and for the highest rate tax payers (paying tax at 45%) this works out as 31p for every £1 you donate.

How do I add Gift Aid?

You can choose to add Gift Aid when you donate online or you can complete our Gift Aid declaration form and send it to The Roman Baths Foundation, The Pump Room, Stall Street, Bath, BA1 1LZ.  The Foundation can then claim Gift Aid on all your donations in the last 4 years and on all future donations. The donation must be made from a personal bank or building society account. The donation must be your own money and not the proceeds of a collection.

What information do you collect?

To add Gift Aid, we need your full name and home address. All information is stored securely and is not shared with third parties. You can find out more in our Privacy Statement.

My circumstances have changed, what do I do?

Once you have become a Gift Aid donor, please let us know if your circumstances change so we can update our records. Please email The Foundation if you:

  • want to cancel an existing declaration
  • change your name or home address
  • no longer pay sufficient tax on your Income and/or Capital Gains
