Donations to the BIS
If you are NOT a UK taxpayer, please select 'NONE' in the dropdown menu below, where it asks you to specify your 'Gift Aid option. Gift Aid is a UK government tax scheme whereby the Society receives extra income from the tax authorities. Please ignore this if you don't pay tax in the UK.
The BIS has made significant changes to its outlook and working methods in the last few years, all with the aim of making the Society much more attractive. We are increasing our focus on the Members, improved ways to participate, and have concentrated on giving better value for your subscription. The BIS website is now at the centre of communications, keeping everyone fully in touch with the Society and its activities. We have added Odyssey e-newsletter to our output with its exciting focus on hard science fiction and the imaginative aspect of space exploration, and also with Society news. Your contribution, however small, will be acknowledged by letter and with your name entered in a ‘roll of appreciation’. We are a registered charity so please do consider making donations by Giftaid (for UK resident taxpayers), which increases the amount we receive. The Society is almost entirely funded by Members and Fellows, so we really do need your support.

If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your gift can be increased by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost to you. This means every £1.00 could be worth £1.25 to us, and it doesn’t cost you a penny! You must pay an amount of UK Income tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each year (6 April one year to 5 April the next) that is at least equal to the tax that the British Interplanetary Society and any other charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) you support will reclaim on your donations for that tax year (Council tax and VAT do not count). The British Interplanetary Society will claim 25p in tax for every £1 gift aided. If you are a UK taxpayer and want the British Interplanetary Society to treat as Gift Aid donations all qualifying payments made today, in the past four years and/or from this date of this declaration please change the Gift Aid box below. By changing the Gift Aid box, I confirm that I am a UK taxpayer and want the British Interplanetary Society to treat as Gift Aid donations, all qualifying payments made today, in the past four years and/or all donations I make from the date of this declaration until I notify you otherwise (select appropriate action below).
