OVERSEAS SERVICE PENSIONERS’ BENEVOLENT SOCIETY (Registered Charity No. 235989)

CHARITABLE OBJECTIVES AND ACTIONS

The Benevolent Society is a registered charity founded by OSPA in 1964 to relieve poverty by giving financial assistance to pensioners who are actual or eligible members of OSPA, and to certain dependents, who are in need.  The Society currently helps over 100 beneficiaries in the UK and overseas who are in serious financial difficulty, usually because of inadequate pension entitlement. The Society also works with other charities which can provide help for our beneficiaries.  See the Trustees' Annual Report.

OUR FUNDRAISING - HOW TO HELP

Our funds come from members’ donations and bequests, together with income from investments. We are having to draw down our capital reserves, and low investment earnings have reduced regular income.  There is therefore an increased need for donations and bequests.  Donors can make regular payments by deductions from their pensions or salaries under the Payroll-giving scheme.  All donations from people who are UK taxpayers can be made through the Gift Aid arrangements, which give a tax benefit to the Society.  Bequests can be made by a codicil to an existing Will; there is no need to make a new Will.  A bequest may also reduce liability to Inheritance Tax.  

Any money you can give will go to help former colleagues from our Overseas Service who are really short of money.

We acknowledge with thanks grants received from the Civil Service Insurance Society's Charity Fund and the Everest Trust.  These funds enable us to give one-off grants for special needs, holidays or respite care.

CONTACT

Since January 2016 the Society is one of several charities administered by accountants Lindeyer Francis Ferguson. Three supervising Trustees retain ultimate responsibility for the charity.  These include the OSPA Secretary, David Le Breton, working from the OSPA office.
