The BSA has been supported by subscriptions and philanthropy throughout its 130-year history and, as we seek to reduce our dependence on government funding, the importance of these contributions is increasing. The BSA’s Supporters are a central part of our community and enjoy stand-out packages. The BSA offers four levels of contribution that are renewed each year on 1 January. All donations received from our Supporters who are UK taxpayers are eligible for Gift Aid. Supporters in all tiers are eligible to vote at the AGM in London.
