Gift Aid explained
Gift Aid is a scheme run by the Government which allows charities to claim back the tax you have already paid on your donation. This means that you can increase the value of your donation by 25 per cent, at no extra cost to you!
It’s quick and easy to sign up to Gift Aid, and it provides a valuable source of income for us. You only have to sign up to Gift Aid once with each charity you support, and we can even claim back the tax on all of your donations in the past four years.
Are you a UK taxpayer?
If so, all you need to do is let us know your name, full address including post code, and confirm that you are a UK tax payer. If you donate via the Virgin Money Giving website, you will be given the option to Gift Aid your donation online.
In order to qualify for Gift Aid you must be a UK tax payer, and you must have paid at least the amount of tax being claimed back by your charities. For example, if you donate £10 we can claim £2.50 extra in Gift Aid, so you must have paid at least £2.50 in tax this tax year.
Income tax and the tax paid on pensions and savings all allow you to claim Gift Aid. VAT and council tax do not qualify.
The tax reclaimed through gift aid will be used to help The Trust to continue to provide summer holidays for children with special needs. Thank you.
