Breaking Down Barriers

Why we need your help

Medical cannabis can have life-transforming effects for vulnerable patients in the UK whose lives are blighted by chronic conditions. NHS access is still virtually non-existent. In the recent grant application round, we have received a huge increase in applications.

How you can help

We are seeking to secure monthly contributions from a number of organisations with 100% of your monthly donation going directly to fund the prescription cost. Sapphire Medical Clinics contribute the grant recipient appointment costs.

The typical cost of a prescription for medical cannabis treating chronic pain is £114 a month. However, Sapphire Medical Foundation supports patients with the greatest need, facing the largest financial barriers. For example prescription costs for a child with treatment resistant epilepsy can be in excess of £1,000 a month.

All the below require a 12 month commitment as all grant recipients are supported for a minimum of one year.

£114 per month contributing to one patient
£228 per month contributing to two patients
£570 per month contributing to five patients

Reclaim Gift Aid

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Sapphire Medical Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Sapphire Medical Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Sapphire Medical Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. 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 Sapphire Medical Foundation 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 Sapphire Medical Foundation receives 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.
