As a charity we can reclaim tax on all donations under the Gift Aid scheme provided you are a UK taxpayer. This means that eligible gifts can be increased by 25p for every £1 that is donated. For example, if you donate £100.00 to the charity we can reclaim a further £25.00 from HM Revenue & Customs.

If you are a higher rate taxpayer in the UK, the charity can reclaim the basic rate tax and as a donor you can keep the difference between the higher rate and the basic rate of tax. There is no cost to you.
