Opt in for Gift Aid
Gift Aid is a simple scheme that enables charities to reclaim the basic rate of tax on donations received from UK taxpayers. The scheme was originally introduced in 1990 and substantially revised from 6 April 2000.
It allows individuals to complete a simple, short declaration that they are a UK taxpayer, which allows the charity to reclaim the value of the tax that they have paid on the gift from the Inland Revenue.
For a basic-rate taxpayer, this adds 28 percent to the value of any gift, at no cost to the individual. Higher-rate taxpayers can also reclaim the tax that they have paid on gifts, above and beyond that claimed directly by the charities.
If donating by credit or debit card or direct debit please remember to tick the Gift Aid box or fill in the Gift Aid declaration.
