Gift Aid

What is Gift Aid?
The Gift Aid scheme is a government initiative which enables charities such as Greatwood, to reclaim the basic rate tax that has already been paid on donations received. This increases the value of your donations by 25%. To sign up to Gift Aid, you must pay Income or Capital Gains tax. And you must have paid enough tax in the tax year in question to cover the amount which Greatwood will reclaim.

How does Gift Aid work?
When a UK taxpayer gives a gift of money to a charity such as Greatwood, 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).

How much is Gift Aid worth?
Gift Aid allows us to claim back 25p for every £1 you give to us, boosting the value of your donation by a quarter. All we need from you is permission to reclaim the tax you have paid to HMRC.

What do I need to do?
If you are a donor who has paid UK tax and not already completed our Gift Aid declaration previously, then please ‘Go even further’ and print our Gift Aid Declaration Form.
