Where Most Needed

Your donations to our Where Most Needed fund enable us to fill gaps and sustainably continue our work.

Your donations to our Where Most Needed fund enable us to fill gaps and sustainably continue our work, building stronger Muslim communities, advocating on your behalf and working across the UK to bring us together for a more just society for all.

Help us create better mosques, and provide innovative and diversified projects to make a meaningful difference to our communities across the UK. By donating to the Where Most Needed fund you can be sure that your funds will be used to provide the best possible support to those projects most in need.

Given growing demand from communities for capacity building, empowerment and representation across Britain, the MCB has grown year on year since its establishment but in order to deliver the projects our communities need, we need your support. Meeting greater calls for community support means ever improving and developing the structures of the MCB.

You can help sustain and transform our work with one simple click. Please donate today.

How we use your money

1. Advocacy

One our key focuses given the growing spotlight on our communities and the unfortunate rise in islamophobic hate crime as a result is Tackling Islamophobia. The MCB has multiple projects in this area, looking to build consensus around the APPG definition of Islamophobia, delivering workshops across sectors, supporting the work of our Centre for Media Monitoring and looking at Islamophobia in Political parties as well.
However, we also advocate on behalf of our communities in other areas, such as, increasing funding for security to our mosques, better COVID messaging for communities, increased representation within the media etc.

2. Capacity building our communities

The MCB provides media trainings, racial justice workshops, islamophobia workshops, RSE support, and a whole host of resources for mosques and madrasas on governance, youth support and more. The MCB is also in the process of launching a Mosque funding platform that would help mosques access much needed funding to improve their governance and service delivery. Alongside this we provide a whole host of Ramadan and COVID toolkits and resources that are used across civil society.

3. Representing our affiliates

The MCB represents our affiliates in roundtables with media, civil service, MPs and government representatives. We work hard to share the views and feedback we receive from our affiliates to better inform policy and community relations. We also sit on interfaith and international panels, to represent the views of the British Muslim community as best we can. This continues to be vital work, though less highlighted, part of our work.

Support us to continue to develop and transform diversified projects where they are most needed, donate today.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) 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 Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) 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 Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) 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.
