Donations Policy

The Bookhams Residents’ Association (BRA) is a voluntary membership organisation that is open to all residents and is independent of political parties. The BRA provides a consultative link between residents, Councillors, public authorities and utility services, and co-ordinates voluntary services in the neighbourhood. Within its limited means, and within its objectives and purpose, the BRA occasionally makes donations to other local organisations.

  1. Donations to organisations within the Bookhams should only be made to those organisations whose objects and purposes are consistent with those of the Association (see below).
  2. Donations to organisations outside the Bookhams should only be made to those organisations that have the potential to be of benefit to the residents of the Bookhams.
  3. Donations should not replace funding that could be provided by public bodies.
  4. Donations should not be provided to individuals or businesses apart from circumstances whereby the BRA considers that the benefit provided meets the objectives.
  5. Donations up to £200 will be determined by the Chairman and Treasurer and will be reported at the next regular meeting of the BRA.
  6. Donations should be limited to a maximum of £200 unless approval to exceed this amount is given by the Board of Directors and will be reported at the next regular meeting of the BRA.
