Personal Donation (PAYE Workers)
Sports clubs can reclaim tax from revenue on behalf of the donor. For PAYE workers, who contribute a minimum of €250 per annum, this contribution is paid from post-tax income and it is this tax payment that is reclaimed by the sporting body. It does not cost the donor anything additional but provides a huge benefit to the sporting body. Section 41 of the Finance Act 2002 provides for a scheme of tax relief for relevant donations to an approved sports body for the funding of approved projects.

Example – Donation of €590 per year
A donation of €590 to a club from a PAYE taxpayer will be treated as having been received ‘net’ of income tax. This means that a donation from an individual who pays income tax at the higher rate of 41% is worth an additional 72% to the Club. The amount received by the club is calculated as follows:
– Donation / Cost to Donor € 590
- Tax rebate reclaimed by club € 410
- Club receives € 1,000
If you are in a position to provide a personal donation please contact Tim (0872052842) or Paddy (0868506711).
We are all proud when asked to say I'm from the Bridge and even prouder to declare or associiation with Sixmilebridge GAA. A lifetime membership for €2,000 is now available so please contact Tim (0872052842) or Paddy (0868506711) as this offer is limited to 25 people.
Remembering those who are no longer with us is but who have made us what we are is of huge importance for the club in all we do and the memorial wall in the new arena will allow families to mark the memories of loved ones by including their name on a special memorial granite plaque which will reside inside the arena. (Cost for inclusion on the wall including engraving is €1,000 for life).
