Give more with Gift Aid
Gift Aid increases the value of your donations and means charities can benefit even more at no extra cost to you.
If you’re a UK taxpayer, add Gift Aid whenever you make a donation and the charity can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift – that’s 25p for every £1 you give.So if you donated £100 to The Mulberry Centre, it means that you’ll actually be giving us at least £125.
Higher rate tax payers can claim additional tax benefits for donations they make to charity, which you can keep or pass on to any charitable organisation. Simply indicate how much you have donated when completing your tax self-assessment form.
- Gift Aid rules require the completion of a Gift Aid Declaration Form or on The Mulberry Centre sponsorship form. This provides us with the minimum information required for us to be able to claim Gift Aid on a donation.
- Gift Aid can be claimed on individual and sponsorship donations that are made to The Mulberry Centre.
- Gift Aid applies only to ‘gifts’. That means we can’t use Gift Aid to boost fundraising totals on activities where people have been charged an entry fee, have entered a competition, received a service or a product. This also extends to activities where the donor can’t be traced (such as giving to collections).
- Donations given through Give As You Earn for example, cannot have Gift Aid claimed on them because they are taken from your salary pre-tax and therefore are already tax-effective.
