Gift Aid is a scheme that allows charities such as Gainsborough’s House to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers. Donating to Gainsborough’s House through Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give and it won’t cost you any extra.
It’s a simple process
To Gift Aid your donation all you need to do is complete a Gift Aid form and return it to Gainsborough’s House.
Paying enough tax to qualify for Gift Aid
- You need to be a UK tax payer
- You need to have paid enough tax through income and capital gains tax in the financial year of your donation (6 April to 5 April)
- You must tell the charities you support if you stop paying enough tax.
