Gift Aid on financial donations - How does it work?

If you pay income tax or capital gains tax you could complete a gift aid declaration form (at the bottom of our donate page) which means we are able to claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated to us. That’s £12.50 for every £50 donation!

As long as you pay enough tax in the tax year to cover the amount we claim back, claiming gift aid has no affect on you at all. It is simply a tool for us to claim tax back from HMRC.

The above is not meant as a legal definition of Gift Aid, but simply as an insight into the way Gift Aid works. For more information regarding Gift Aid please visit
