A CIO provides all members (trustees, parents and children) with additional protection, increased transparency and also enables the club to claim tax reliefs on certain subscriptions, purchases and donations that will be used to benefit children.
The South Oxfordshire Heat Basketball Fund
The trustees of SOHBC have set aside an annual fund for community projects that benefit children in South Oxfordshire. Members of the club (players and parents) are encouraged to apply via email with details of a specific charitable project that they would like to see developed to fruition (a select number of grants to a maximum of £500 per grant are provided to projects that meet the approval of the trustees).
Examples of causes that are supported by SOHBC (with free coaching sessions and/or club donations):
Oxfordshire Heat Wheelchair Basketball
OASIS Autism/ASD Charity
Sports Works - Autism/ASD Basketball (20 week coaching project run by SOHBC)
South Oxfordshire Schools (6*6 week coaching programmes run by SOHBC)
London School of Basketball Reach & Teach
