Sign up to Gift Aid

Please help us to maximise the value of your donations by:

  • telling us if you are a UK taxpayer and therefore allowing us to claim Gift Aid on your donation
  • helping us understand how, when or if you would like to hear from us in the future.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving more to charity, and it won’t cost you a penny – you just need to be a UK tax payer. However remember you can gift aid only money donated by you and not on the behalf of others. For us to claim gift aid on behalf of others they need to individually give us permission to do so by filling out a gift aid form or making sure they fill out all the boxes on our gift aid envelopes. We need their name, first line of their address, postcode, signature and a tick in the box that confirms they pay tax.

It is a scheme introduced by HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs), which allows us to claim back the basic rate of tax you’ve already paid on the money you donate.

We can reclaim tax from all donations you’ve made in the last four years and all that you make in the future. That’s an extra 25p for every £1 you give at absolutely no extra cost to you. Please remember that what you pay in income/capital gains tax must be at least equal to the amount we will reclaim against your gift.
