Make your donation 25% bigger...
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is one of the easiest and most effective ways to give to charity. The scheme, introduced by the Inland Revenue allows us to claim Gift Aid tax relief of 25p for every £1 donated.
Do I have to give regularly?
No. We are able to claim back tax on any donation that has been made to us whether it be a one-off donation or regular donations. A single Gift Aid declaration will cover all future donations that you make to St Barnabas Hospice Shops.
Am I eligible for Gift Aid?
Provided you are a UK tax payer, yes. However you don’t have to be employed to still be eligible. Do you pay tax on any of the following:
- Personal or occupational pensions
- Stocks and shares
- Rental income
- Bank and building society savings accounts
- Overseas and UK investment dividends
If yes, then you are eligible, and it doesn’t cost you a penny! To qualify for Gift Aid you should be a UK tax payer who has paid enough income tax to cover the amount we reclaim. St Barnabas can claim Gift Aid tax relief of 25p on every £1 of donations we sell on your behalf.
