About Us Donate and Berkshire Moneywise

Donating and Berkshire Moneywise

The Credit Union will always need help in delivering its core social objectives of:

  • Promotion of thrift among its members by the accumulation of their savings.
  • Creation of sources of credit for the members at a fair and reasonable cost.

In addition we need help and support to assist us with our Young Savers and School Saving Clubs Initiatives which are encouraging children into good financial management from the start.

Accordingly we have sponsored the formation of an independent charity called BERKSHIRE MONEYWISE with its own Trustees and constitution whose charitable purpose is:

Providing financial support to Berkshire Credit Union in its activities in providing financial assistance and support across the Credit Unions common bond.

BERKSHIRE MONEYWISE is registered with the HMRC ref EW24246 for Gift Aid. For further information

  • Santander Bank

  • Sort Code; 09-01-28
  • Account Number; 66337329

Better still, how about making a regular monthly donation and set up a standing order (same account details as above) to Berkshire Moneywise?

We do not normally issue receipts or acknowledge donations because of the cost of doing so however, if you would like a receipt or acknowledgement of your generous donation please let us know.
