Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a government scheme that enables charities to claim the basic rate of tax on donations you have made to a charity. This means that if you're a tax payer, your donations are increased by 25% at no extra cost to you! So for every £1 donated, we can claim back 25p.

Hopefully the information below will help you understand Gift Aid more, but if you have any questions about gift aiding your donation please get in touch.
