Gift Aid Declaration

  • I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax which all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand that the Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.
  • Gift Aid Details

    Thank you for your donation and for ticking the boxes. This enables us to claim tax back from HMRC in UK and means that your donation can go even further. For example, a donation of £1,000 enables us to receive a total of £1,250; we would receive £1,000 from you immediately and could then claim a further £250 from HMRC later. The reason for ticking all boxes is to cover monthly subscriptions as well as single donations.

    Please notify the Foundation if you:
    • • Want to cancel your declaration.
    • • Change your name or home address.
    • • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.
    Note:
    If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code. This relief is due to you in addition to the amount that we can reclaim. Further details can be found on the HMRC Website at: https://www.gov.uk/search?q=Gift+Aid
