Amazing but true
All our courses, workshops, talks & events, are offered free, not just in Manchester but in all our centres both across the UK & Worldwide.
How come it’s all free?
We are a charity and never charge for any of our events so that what we offer is available to all.
Our founder, Brahma Baba, created the principle behind our thinking in 1937, when he established a spiritual university for the world. His vision was to provide opportunities for people from all religions & backgrounds to develop their spiritual potential, so that they could experience peace, love, and compassion on a daily basis. To do this he trained meditation teachers from all backgrounds to serve every corner of society free of charge. This is why all the events, talks, courses, facilities provided by Inner Space today, or any day, are offered to you as a gift.
All the team who work and present at Inner Space give their time and talents freely. We aim to nurture the very best in ourselves so that we can naturally enjoy sharing something of value with others.
How do we fund ourselves?
Although all work is carried out voluntarily by practicing meditators, there are, of course, substantial costs involved in running Inner Space. We are able to continue our work because of the contributions made by those who have taken benefit and want others to receive the same.
As an aspect of their life of service, many visitors who come here regulary have also chosen to make a regular contribution, according to means, to support the work of Inner Space on an ongoing basis.
This is done without overview by Inner Space. We neither solicits nor accepts funds from others for activities that relate to the internal running of the organisation and there is no membership fee.
Gift Aid Scheme
As a registered charity, we are entitled to claim Gift Aid on contributions made by UK taxpayers.
The Gift Aid scheme allows us to claim back 25p from HMRC for every £1 that you donate to us at no extra cost to you. The declaration covers all donations including one off payments and regular donations. Your declaration has been applied to any donations that you may have made to Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University UK (BKWSU) over the past four years and any donations you make in the future. Your donations are eligible for the scheme if you are a UK taxpayer and you are currently paying Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax that is equal to or more than the tax deducted from your donations. Please let us know if you have made donations to us but have not been a UK taxpayer in this period.
You are entitled to cancel your Gift Aid declaration at any time within a period of 30 days without any tax being claimed by BKWSU. Should you choose not to Gift Aid your donations or if you stop paying tax, please let us know and we can take your donations out of the Gift Aid scheme.
