Gift Aid – Specific to UK Taxpayers

As a UK taxpayer you can increase the value of your donation by 25%, by adding Gift Aid, which means the UK government will top-up 0.25p for every £1 of your donation. 

This is a Scheme, operated by the UK Government, allowing tax to be reclaimed by charities from eligible donations. Not all donations are eligible for gift-aid (such as donations made by businesses or by someone who is unemployed etc.). We will use the Gift Aid, where it is available, to cover the administrative costs of the Charity, namely: transport logistics and bank charges. 

Should you wish to top-up your donation with gift-aid, and you are a UK tax payer, please send us an email with your signed declaration form, which you can find here.

This is how we can operate our 100% Donation Policy of your personal donation.
