Supports Us

We want to help you to get involved in ‘Sharing Success with Tomorrow’s Leaders’ in whatever way works best for you.

Support comes in all forms: donations, time or even ideas. Whatever you choose to offer, we are more than happy to receive. With your support, today’s young people will transform into tomorrow’s leaders.

The Aleto Foundation was created to provide significant lifetime opportunities for young people with high potential.

Our main focus is on identifying and developing leaders from diverse backgrounds in order to create a positive impact on society. We are looking for a meaningful partnership whereby everyone benefits by working collaboratively to create a pipeline of diverse leaders in the United Kingdom.

We require Partners who support our vision and would prefer to work with organisations who would be expected to not only support financially, but would also engage with the young people that we are supporting to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Financial support from our Partners is key to ensure that our leadership development programmes are wide reaching and that the ongoing mentoring support is available to progress the next generation.  Your support will enable us to continue to have a solid platform to project our young people into senior leadership positions.

Whether it’s online fundraising, regular giving or donating by text message, you can support the Aleto Foundation by donating via JustGiving.

Using easyfundraising is just about the simplest way to raise money for the Aleto Foundation. EasyFundraising work with over 2000 retailers who have all agreed to pass a donation to charities when you shop with them. To raise money, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log into easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as you would normally. But because you visited easyfundraising first, the Aleto Foundation gets a donation. It really is that simple.

Donating shares

Did you know that donating shares is one of the most tax-effective ways to give to charity?

Over 12 million people in the UK own shares, with a combined value of more than £200 billion. If only a tiny fraction of these were given to charity, imagine what a difference it could make.

You can put shares to good use by giving them to charity, because they can be more tax-effective than giving cash.

  • You won’t have to pay any capital gains tax on the shares you donate and you can claim income tax relief too.
  • If you are a higher rate (40%) taxpayer you will be able to claim income tax relief equal to 40% of the value of the gift.
  • If you are a highest rate (50%) taxpayer you will be able to claim income tax relief equal to 50% of the value of the gift.

 

If you would like to donate shares to Aleto Foundation, contact us and we will send you a letter acknowledging your intended gift. Email veronica.martin@powerlist-foundation.com
