Squash and CASCs: the Context • Squash currently have 75 CASC-registered clubs • Sports clubs have saved over £10 million in Rate Relief since the CASC scheme began in 2002 • Only 1 in 10 clubs claim Gift Aid* meaning that grassroots clubs are missing out on vital funds they are entitled to claim • Joining JustGiving for Sports Clubs takes the work of claiming Gift Aid away from the CASC so that the club can focus on squash and spend less time on administration*Source, HMRC
