West Yorkshire Queer Stories

Why we need your help

Donate to support West Yorkshire Queer Stories!

WYQS has been made possible through funding by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. We still need to raise £10,000 match-funding to ensure we reach our target of building the biggest, most diverse and most accessible collection of queer oral histories in the UK.

Your donation will contribute to web development expenses, volunteer travel opportunities and transcribing stories online to make them more accessible to all.

Amount to donate 

£10: WYQS will thank you with some WYQS stickers, a story envelope and an acknowledgement on our website.

£20:  WYQS will thank you with some WYQS stickers, a story envelope, a WYQS tote bag and an acknowledgement on our website.

£50: WYQS will thank you with some WYQS stickers, a story envelope, a tote bag, front-row seats at our final project celebration event film launch and an acknowledgement on our website and on the night.

£100: As our top-level donor, you will receive your choice of a full colour, giclée quality photographic print by WYQS photographer, Geoff Brokate, from the collection commissioned for the project (see examples to the right). You will also receive some WYQS stickers, a story envelope, a tote bag, front row seats at our final project celebration event film launch and an acknowledgement on our website and on the night.

Gift Aid

Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.

Gift Aid is reclaimed by West Yorkshire Queer Stories from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.

In order to Gift Aid your donation, please read the following statement and tick the relevant box on the following page:

I want West Yorkshire Queer Stories to treat all donations I make to the project to be Gift Aid donations.

I am a UK taxpayer and 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 it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Please notify West Yorkshire Queer Stories if you:

- want to cancel this declaration.

- change your name or home address.

- no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
