About Gift Aid

Gift Aid increases the value of membership contributions and donations to charities by allowing them to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift. It allows us to claim 25% on top of your donation, for example, on a £50 membership or donation, we can claim back an additional £12.50.

We would like to reclaim gift aid on your behalf. We can only reclaim Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer. Please confirm that you are eligible for Gift Aid. More about Gift Aid.
