A Note About Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a simple way for charities such as us to increase the value of gifts of money received from UK taxpayers. When a UK taxpayer gives a gift of money to a charity, they have already paid tax on that money. Because charities are generally exempt from tax, they can claim an amount from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) equal to the tax paid on that money by the donor. This repayment from HMRC is known as Gift Aid. By asking our donors for permission to reclaim the tax that they have paid on their donation to us we can increase the value of your donations to our charity by one quarter. If you would like to ensure your donations are eligible for Gift Aid you can download our Gift Aid Declaration Form here and send it back to us. We will then update your records on the computer so you will only have to do this once.
