Gift Aid is a scheme run by the Government which allows charities to claim back the basic rate of tax on any donation or sponsorships made by UK taxpayers.
If you are a UK taxpayer and sign up for the Gift Aid scheme, Terrence Higgins Trust can claim back 25p from the Government for every £1 you donate. This means that if you were to donate £10, the value of your gift would rise to £12.50 at no extra cost to you!
You only have to complete a Gift Aid form once, and we will be able to claim the tax back on all of your future donations until you cancel your declaration. We can even claim back the tax on any donations that you have made to us in the last four years.
It’s quick and easy to sign up to Gift Aid, and is a valuable source of income to us.
What do we need?
In order to claim Gift Aid on your donations we need:
- your full name, including your first name or initial
- your full address, including your postcode
- a dated declaration which confirms that you are a UK taxpayer - this will normally be a tick box.
What if my circumstances change?
If any of your details change at any time, or you stop paying tax, you need to notify us so that we can amend our records.
You can either notify us in writing at:
