What is Gift Aid?
The Government allows charities to claim back tax on donations. This tax relief is called ‘Gift Aid’.
Gift Aid is great because it means we get extra money added to your donation at no extra cost to you. For every £1 you donate, we receive £1.25 when you add Gift Aid. It's like free money!
Can Gift Aid be reclaimed on all donations?
There are some exceptions where Gift Aid can’t be reclaimed:
If you’re not a UK taxpayer
We can claim back the basic rate of tax on donations because the donor has already paid the tax on their earnings. So if you don’t pay UK income or capital gains tax it can’t be reclaimed on your donation.
If you’re donating someone else’s money
Gift Aid can’t be reclaimed if you’re donating someone else’s money – for example, if you’ve sold raffle tickets or you’re making a donation on behalf of a company.
