Fundraising Activities

Donate now

Your gift will help us to develop the adventurous activities we offer to our 400,000 youth members. With your help we can offer Scouting to even more children and young people including the 36,000 currently on our waiting list.


You can donate online via our Virgin Money Giving portal. Make a one-off gift or set up a regular-giving account.

By using Virgin Money Giving to donate you are also helping us to keep our administration costs down.

Don’t forget to Gift Aid it

Gift Aid is a simple government initiative which allows you to increase the value of your donations at no extra cost to you. For every pound you give, The Scout Association can claim an extra 25 pence from HM Revenue & Customs, helping your donation to go further.

To be eligible for Gift Aid, you must pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that you donate to will reclaim on your donations for that tax year. Taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. This also applies if you pay tax on your savings, pension plan or investment income.
