Sponsor a Puja

We aim to offer Tara, Medicine Buddha and Lama Chöpa Tsog pujas each month. They are a Buddhist practice done in a group with the intention for the positive energy they create to benefit as many people and animals as possible.

Sponsoring a puja is said to help create the cause for the energy it creates to benefit yourself and anyone you wish to dedicate it (send the energy) to. When you request we dedicate a puja for you it is important to clearly communicate who and how you would like it to benefit so those doing the puja can have that in mind.

There is no set amount to donate for sponsoring a puja, however, donations of any amount are encouraged. Please complete the forms below to let us know the details of your sponsorship (left) and make an donation to Land of Joy (right). We will confirm we have received it and will request your dedication at the next appropriate puja.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Boost your donations by 25% at no cost to you! A Gift Aid declaration allows us to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I confirm I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Land of Joy will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When we receive a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
