What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple way for our Charity to increase the value of gifts of money we receive from UK taxpayers.
How does Gift Aid work?
When a UK taxpayer gives money to a charity, tax has already been paid on that money. This money, therefore, qualifies for Gift Aid. Because our Charity is 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.)
How much is Gift Aid worth?
For every £1 you donate under Gift Aid we actually receive £1.25, as we are able to claim 25p from the HMRC.
What do I need to do?
All we need is your permission to reclaim the tax you have paid to HMRC, so either let us know when you make a donation that you are happy for us to reclaim the tax on your behalf, or request a Gift Aid declaration from us.
Please print out our Gift Aid form and send it to us at The Fundraising Office, Hamar Centre, Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, Mytton Oak Road, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY3 8XQ.
