What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid allows us to claim at least 25% extra on top of your donation from the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). This means that for every £1 you donate, GI Trust can claim an extra 25p direct from HMRC.
Furthermore, for every Gift Aid donation made up to 5th April 2011, HMRC will pay an additional 3 pence on every pound.
Does your donation qualify for Gift Aid?
By ticking the Gift Aid box, you are declaring that you are a UK taxpayer (for the current year beginning 6th April) and you have paid (or are going to pay) HMRC more tax throughout that year than we are claiming back.
If you have donated £10, for example, and have indicated that you would like us to claim the tax back, we can claim £2.50 from HMRC. You must, therefore, be sure that you have paid (or will pay) more than £2.50 in income or capital gains tax for that tax year.
