Ways to Give

There are many ways to give to the library. We’d love it if you could consider giving regularly. Small donations of even £2 or £3 per month are helpful as they make it easier to predict our income and plan for the future. Gift Aid is also immensely useful – if you gift aid your donation, it increases its value by 25%, so £10 donated by you is topped up to £12.50 by the government.

Regular Small Donations

More than anything, we need lots of monthly small donations.

Monthly donations mean we have a regular source of income that can help us plan and manage our money properly. If you could afford to donate £2.00 per month (less than the cost of a takeaway coffee), then head over to CAF Donate and make a regular monthly donation.

KindLink Online Donations

KindLink is our preferred online donations method. They can manage one-off and regular donations, and they also make it simple for us to collect Gift Aid, which is the government scheme to top up your donations by 25% at no expense to you. To give, head over to our KindLink page now and follow the easy instructions on how to give.

Give While You Shop Online

Give while you shop – at no cost to you! Everyone’s shopping online at the moment. Why not help the library while doing so? It will cost you nothing, and will help us enormously.

Easy Fundraising

Donate Books

The book cupboard is brimming at the moment, but it’s always worth asking Sonja if she has any space for more stock. She can be contacted on books@cricklewoodlibrary.org.uk.

But PLEASE, don’t leave books outside the library without asking. They get spoiled and have to be destroyed.

Support Events

Before the COVID-19 crisis, we were all set to take part in the Blenheim Triathlon and Make Music Day. There will be more events in future in support of the library. If you have an idea for a fundraiser, and would like to talk it through with us, please email on info@cricklewoodlibrary.org.uk. We’re always happy to hear.

Give By Cheque

If online donations are not for you, we are also happy to accept cheques or cash!

If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can take part in the Gift Aid scheme where the government tops up your donation by 25% at no cost to you.

Please complete a Gift Aid Donation form, and return it, along with your cheque, made payable to Friends of Cricklewood Library, to 152 Olive Road, London NW2 6UY.

Payroll Giving

Many of the UK’s larger employers will support payroll giving, where your donation comes to us direct from your salary every month. In many cases, employers will top up your donations with their own money. See the government’s website for more details. The benefit to you is that you you don’t pay tax on it. Win-win!
