Gift Aid

Are you a UK taxpayer? If so, every £1 you give could be worth £1.25 to us - at no extra cost to you. Through the Gift Aid scheme, we can reclaim the tax on your donations. For every pound that you donate we can claim an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue. We will also be able to reclaim the tax on any donations you have made in the last four years and any future donations you make. And it doesn’t cost you another penny.

Gift Aid questions and answers

Do I qualify for Gift Aid?

As long as you pay enough UK income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax we will reclaim in the tax year.

Do I have to declare this information on a tax return?

Not if you are a standard-rate taxpayer and do not receive a tax return from the Inland Revenue. However, if you do receive a tax return, you must declare the information.

Do I have to fill in a Gift Aid declaration every year?

No, it’s valid for all donations that you give until you cancel it, although we do need to know if you change your name or address or cease to pay UK tax.
