Make it Count
Gift Aid is a great way of increasing your donations it gives you an extra 25p for every £1 you donate and is an income tax relief designed to benefit charities. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by 25%, because the charity can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift – at no extra cost to you.
The process is really simple... All you need to do is fill out a Gift Aid Declaration Form. This is a statement from you to the charity confirming that you want to donate through Gift Aid and receive tax back on your donation.
Some employers run a Matched Giving Scheme and will double the amount you have raised. This is a great tax-efficient scheme, so check with any organisations you are involved with.
Is my donation eligible for gift aid?
The charity can only claim Gift Aid on monetary donations from your own funds, and if you've paid UK Income and / or Capital Gains Tax during that year. The tax you pay in that tax year must be at least equal to value of Gift Aid the charity.
If you stop paying enough tax, it's important to tell us. If you don't let us know, and you pay less tax in the tax year than the amount of Gift Aid we are claiming, you will need to pay any difference back to HMRC.
Donations made with a company's money or other peoples' money, including amounts raised through fundraising (e.g. cake sale) are not eligible for Gift Aid and you must not request Gift Aid be claimed by the charity on such funds.
