Gift Aid

A new deal for giving to charities was announced in the Budget on 21 March 2000. Any gift to a registered charity made by an individual tax-payer will be eligible for income tax relief. There is no minimum sum and no official forms to complete. All that is required is a simple declaration of donation.

In this way, a gift of £1 becomes £1.28 for us (i.e. we receive a further 28% of your gift). For example, if you give £780, we can reclaim tax to provide us with a total of £1000. In addition, if you are a higher-rate tax-payer, you will be able to reclaim £180 through your tax return; thus a gift of £1000 to us will actually cost you £600.

Any such gift can be enhanced in this way. If you are thinking of making a substantial gift, you may also consider the transfer of shares where savings can be made through both income tax and capitals gains tax relief.

Please print this page, which may be used as a Declaration of Gift Aid. If you prefer, you may make an oral or electronic declaration, in which case we will confirm your offer in writing.
