FOLLOWING THE EARTHQUAKES IN 2015 AND THE LAUNCH OF THE APPEAL CAN WAS OVERWHELMED BY SUPPORT .......
In the immediate aftermath of the earthquake the plight of the Nepalese, many of whom had lost their homes leaving them without shelter of any kind, captured the hearts of many and 306 new fund raising pages were opened.
As a result of that support the amount raised in the year to 31 December 2015 - including the gift aid which could be reclaimed - was £504,449.32.
CAN was very grateful to the efficiency of the JustGiving organisation and the manner in which the Gift Aid was reclaimed. However, as every penny donated to Community Action Nepal counted we were pleased to offer an alternative fund raisers account with the BT MyDonate platform. Unlike JustGiving, who levy a 5% fee on each donation, no additional charges were levied and it really did mean that every penny counted. However, from 30 June 2019, BT MyDonate are closing this arm of their charitable giving - click on the above link to read BT’s explanation.
CAN is now registered with Virgin Money Giving and we commend anyone wishing to donate or raise funds to visit our page on their site.
We have always tried to support fund raisers by writing something on the site about the event as well as creating a link to the individual's Just Giving account and if permission is given to make the link through to Facebook as well.
