Gift Aid allows R&C Mind to claim tax back from HMRC on all your donations. For every £1 you give, they’ll add an extra 25p from your taxes and it doesn’t cost you a penny.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple way for a charity like R&C Mind to increase the value of gifts of money we receive from UK taxpayers.
How does Gift Aid work?
When a UK taxpayer gives a gift of money to a charity like R&C Mind, tax has already been paid on that money. This money therefore qualifies for Gift Aid. Because we are exempt from tax, we can claim an amount equal to the tax paid by a donor on their donation as a repayment from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
What do I need to do?
By ticking the box on our Gift Aid Declaration form below you confirm you are a UK taxpayer and would like R&C Mind to treat all donations you have made in the past four years and from this day forward, until you notify us otherwise, as Gift Aid donations. You must have paid an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax that all charities will reclaim on your donations for that tax year.
