How to Benefit from Your Contributions to ASMAA Efforts Against Big-Oil

This note was written by one of our very hard-working and always willing to step in when necessary – one of our much loved volunteers – she sent it to us via Facebook. I’m now sharing her note with you.

 

TO ALL THAT SAY THAT THEY ARE AGAINST THE OIL & GAS EXPLORATION IN THE ALGARVE & ALENTEJO

DO YOU KNOW:

  1. That donations are a claimable item in your annual tax returns?
  2. You can only submit claims for all donations given to any registered not-for-profit organizations during the year but not for any donations given to any non-registered body?

 

TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THAT ASMAA IS A REGISTERED NOT-FOR PROFIT, if you donate to us, you will in fact be saving money at financial year-end, and it could even mean having to pay no additional taxes, or even getting a tax rebate.

 

Don’t you think, that this is another great reason for contributing financially to just causes?

Let’s get serious!

The question that I’m asking you is:·

Do you see value in having a group of “volunteers” continuing to fight for a healthy, clean Algarve | Alentejo | Portugal?

 

If the answer is YES, then there is a really good reason for you to think twice about how to spend that 10, 50 or 100 euros that you where going to spend on non-essential things and goodies, and instead make a donation to ASMAA.

Don’t you agree?

The time to CONTRIBUTE is now! Not in three years time or when you win the lottery ... We just can’t keep on financing this fight ourselves with the help of a few very kind donors.

If we want to be SUCESSFUL AGAINST GIANTS we need to BE MANY, and WE NEED THE FUNDS with which to fight these giants. They are relying on our lack of funds to win this fight anyway … let’s not give in to their wishes.

With elections around the corner, besides deciding whom to vote for this year, we should also think about how to spend some of our extra money, even a tiny part of our income, however small it might be. We can replace that cup of coffee for a few days, or a meal out, or a new pair of shoes with a donation to ASMAA. I’ve done it, and I don’t have much money … how about you joining me too, and donate now?

 

I know, that you are not a millionaire, but neither am I, nor any of us that are at the front lines battling this fight. But we ARE MANY. So LETS DO THIS TOGETHER!!! If each of us gave 5€ for example... JUST imagine..!

 

We wouldn’t t need to spend time and money (!) running around raising funds for the next step… We have a lot to do without that,... we not sitting on our backsides drinking tea.

 

So.... NOW THAT YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO GET A REFUND FROM THE GOVERNMENT:

Make a decision. Make your donation: - via bank transfer, via PayPal or even if you know us personally, you can hand it over directly to one of us. We will always pass it on to our financial team. (You can always follow-up that we’ve done that)

When you donate, please make sure that you include the following information, so that we can issue the correct receipt.

Name........
Amount.....
Contact details.(Tel and email) .....
NIF number / Fiscal number (if you have it)

Then when you receive all your receipts – either during the year or at financial year end (normally we finish all our books around January of each year) – then in April or May all you have to is to add your receipt statement as a claim on your tax return.  

Easy as that!

If you have ANY questions that have kept you from donating until now, please stop hesitating and CONTACT us.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED IN THE PAST!!! TO THE ONES THAT HAVE 'THOUGHT ABOUT IT' BUT HAVEN'T GOT AROUND TO IT YET: GET MOVING!

THANK YOU

Your ASMAA team of volunteers
