There is a saying - There is no better donation than feeding a soul. You can help
us by donating money and/or your volunteering service in temple, in office administration,
collection of charitable donations and spreading the word about our mission.
As the extension of the temple is being finalised we are looking for funding and
sponsorships. Charity begins at home but should not stop there. An extension means
more space opening doors to more activities for the elderly and children. Our music
classes, language classes, singing classes and yoga sessions will be more comfortable.
We will be able to accommodate more people during the festive season, thus moving
forward. We are actively raising funds to ensure we can do all we can for the less
fortunate and the elderly.
Working together for the community, we should encourage young and old to ensure community
bonds and togetherness. Traditions are beginning to fade and involving the younger
generations will ensure the continuity of our traditions. We ought to work together
as a family. Everyone has something to contribute and working together we can build
on the strength of the community. We are actively looking for volunteers to help
us run this charity. Together we make great things happen, even the unexpected. Shared
experiences are a great way to build closer relationships. Resolve to get involved
now, start with a small commitment, Share your time, skills and abilities and follow
through to make a difference.

Our Registered Charity can claim back the tax paid on donations from the HMRC. The
money that you donate to the charity is money that you have already paid tax on,
so by Gift- Aiding it, we can reclaim that tax. Gift Aid is calculated at the basic-
rate taxpayer’s pay, which is currently 20%.
To donate under the Gift Aid scheme you must be a UK taxpayer and have paid sufficient
tax (as income tax and/or capital gains tax) to cover the amount that will be claimed
by the charity in each tax year.
Using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give, the charity can claim an extra 25p.
So, for every £100 you donate to Mataji's Temple we will be able to reclaim a further
£25 from HMRC.
