Gift Aid is a government scheme whereby we can claim 25p on every £1 donated by a UK taxpayer (certain conditions apply) through HMRC. This money makes a huge difference to us and costs the donor nothing! You only have to complete a Gift Aid Declaration once and we can claim for any donations you make (you can easily revoke your declaration if your circumstances change). Additionally, there are potential tax benefits for higher rate tax payers and you can reclaim some of the tax paid through your self-assessment form. It really is worth looking in to!
