Donating through Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you any extra.
As the Anaphylaxis Campaign is a registered charity, donations made by individuals to us are tax free, known as tax relief. Gift Aid allows UK charities to claim back the basic rate tax you have already paid on your donations. This means we can claim back from the government 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of the donation by a quarter.
You need to make a Gift Aid Declaration for us to be able to claim Gift Aid on your donations. We will also need your home address to identify you as a tax payer.
You can include all donations from the last 4 years. Please tell us about any tax years where you didn’t pay enough tax.
Are my donations eligible for Gift Aid?
Your donations will qualify as long as they’re not more than 4 times what you have paid in tax in that tax year (6 April to 5 April). The tax could have been paid on income or capital gains. You must tell the us if you stop paying enough tax.
Donations from non-UK taxpayers are not eligible for Gift Aid. HMRC regulations also mean that we can’t reclaim Gift Aid on some donations.
Higher rate taxpayers
If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate, you may be entitled to additional tax relief.
If you pay tax above the basic rate, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation. You can do this either through your Self Assessment tax return or by asking HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to amend your tax code.
