What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid allows charities to reclaim the basic rate tax you have already paid on the money you donate. This means that currently, donations can be worth an extra 25p for every £1 donated, at no extra cost to the donor.
How does Gift Aid work?
You just have to complete a declaration saying that you pay enough tax to cover what the charity will reclaim from HM Revenue & Customs.
If you are a higher rate tax payer, you can also claim back the difference between basic and higher rate tax. That means that for every pound you give away, you can get 25p back from the taxman – which you can keep, or give to charity.
If you are a taxpayer, please tick the box on the application form to agree to Gift Aid or if you are telephoning us, please let us know.
