Friends of Standpoint — Donations matched £ for £

Friends of Standpoint — Donations matched £ for £ for August

Dear Standpoint readers,

We are currently hard at work on Standpoint's September issue — going to the printers this week — and hope our readers have been enjoying our current July/August double issue, the bestselling for over a year.

Nevertheless it remains a sad fact that a magazine such as Standpoint cannot survive on sales and advertising alone. In addition to this we have to rely on the generosity of our readers and other supporters — it is only through their munificence that our magazine keeps going. Standpoint is published by the Social Affairs Unit — a UK registered charity — and donations are eligible for Gift Aid.  Existing supporters are generous enough to make donations ranging from £50 — £25,000.

One of our supporters has offered to match all donations pound for pound — up to a total of  £20,000 — we receive between now and the end of August — so your support would be especially welcome at the moment.

Standpoint has considerably cut its costs this year with its new look — and we have also substantially broadened out our support base. Nevertheless we do remain reliant on donors such as yourself and do still need to raise around £70,000 this year.

Donations are Gift Aidable and should be made to the Social Affairs Unit.  You can do so most conveniently by bank transfer to:

Account name: Social Affairs Unit

Sort Code: 20 - 67 - 59

Account No: 70919853

Alternatively you can send a cheque (or a CAF/other Charity Voucher) - made out to "Social Affairs Unit" to me at Standpoint at our new address:


10 Greenwich Quay



Those wishing to donate using PayPal should email [email protected].

Thanks again for your support and enthusiasm for the magazine. It is much appreciated.

All the best


Michael Mosbacher
