God is free! All accommodation, food, pujas and services at Skanda Vale are provided free of charge. We never fundraise or ask anyone for donations of any kind – the ashram is run entirely using anonymous, voluntary donations. Everyone who lives at Skanda Vale works as volunteers, without pay.

Your donations help us fulfill our charitable objectives.

Gift Aid

Did you know you can increase the value of your donation by 25% at no additional cost? If you are a UK taxpayer then all you have to do is click the gift aid option on the donation page and we will then receive an additional 25% of the amount you give us, directly from the Inland Revenue. You must pay an amount of income or capital gains tax at least equal to 25% of the value of your donation. Find out more about Gift Aid.

Donate by cash or cheque:

Cash can be put in the big yellow donation boxes, located outside each of the three temples in the ashram. Please do not offer cash in the temples. Remember to pick up a gift aid form in reception, fill it in and put it in the donation box with your cash.

Cheques and postal orders can be made out to ‘Skanda Vale Temple’. Please post them to Skanda Vale, Llanpumsaint, Carmarthen, SA33 6JT, Wales, UK, or if you prefer, put it in a yellow donation box outside the temple. Don’t forget to download and print a gift aid form.

Our charity project

Skanda Vale’s main seva project is caring for families affected by life-limiting illnesses, like cancer. This part of our work is administered by our partner charity Skanda Vale Hospice CIO (registered number 1166180).

The two charities are integrally linked; Skanda Vale community members offer their time and skills for free to serve our patients and their families. If you’d like to know more about the CIO, you can find out more on the Charity Commission website.
