GA Awards for Publishers

The GA Awards aim to recognise material which is likely to make a significant contribution to geography in primary schools, secondary schools or colleges, and to encourage the creative development of new materials. The Awards are well respected within the geography community, and the GA endorsement / Award logo on winning publications and promotional material is a valuable selling point.

Further information about the scheme and how to apply is available on the GA Awards page.

Donate to the GA

Tax repayment donation

You probably do not need reminding that personal members of the GA can treat their professional subscription as an allowable expense for Income Tax purposes. What this means in practice is that if you make a request to your local Tax Office they will include your GA subscription in the calculation of your PAYE code, thereby allowing you to receive tax relief on the amount that you pay to us.

However, did you also know that if you are a Self Assessment taxpayer you could use your tax return to donate tax repayments to a charity of your choice? The Inland Revenue, via its website, provides a search facility giving details of all UK charities and similar bodies registered with them to accept the donation of a tax repayment via the Self-Assessment tax return. The GA's unique reference code for this purpose is TAR05ZG and it can be obtained by typing 'Geographical Association' into their searchable charities database.

What this means in practice is that taxpayers can nominate the GA to receive a tax repayment due to them as a result of making the tax return. They can donate the whole repayment or specify a lesser amount. If donors make a Gift Aid declaration on the tax return itself the Inland Revenue will pay the tax on Gift Aided donations to the GA without the need to make a further claim. Furthermore higher rate taxpayers will be able to claim the relief due to them in the tax return for year in which the donation was made.

Individuals can also make online donations to the GA via Charity Choice or by visiting the Charity Aid Foundation's website and typing 'Geographical Association' into their charity search facility.

All enquiries regarding the above, as well as any requests for other information regarding bequests in favour of the GA should be directed in the first instance to Richard Gill.
