Gift Aid Declaration​

I understand that if I pay less income/capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in the tax year in which they are received, it is my responsibility to pay any difference and that I must notify the charity of any changes to my tax status, including changes to my name or address.

Gift Aid FAQs

Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows charities to reclaim the tax that you have already paid on your donations.

For every donation you give, we get an extra 25% from the government. So if you give £4, we can get an additional £1. A £20 gift will be worth £25 – with the extra £5 coming from the government. It also counts for donations you’ve made in the past, up to four years ago.
