About Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a simple scheme for UK tax payers that enables us to claim an additional 25p from every £1 that you donate - and it won't cost you a penny. In fact, if you pay tax at a higher rate then you can reclaim 25p from the taxman for every £1 you donate to us by including details of your donations on your Self Assessment form.

If you are a UK tax payer, all you have to do is tick the relevant box on the donation form and we can reclaim the tax from the Inland Revenue. No matter how large or small, regular or one-off, all donations, whatever the method of payment, now qualify.


  1. You can cancel your declaration at any time by notifying us.
  2. You must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains at least equal to the the tax we reclaim on your donations in the tax year (currently 25p for every £1 you donate).
  3. If in future your circumstances change and you no longer pay tax on your income and/or capital gains equal to the tax we reclaim, you can cancel your declaration.
  4. Please notify us of any change in your name or address.
