How would you like to donate?
Gift Aid is a scheme which allows charities such as WWF-UK to reclaim basic rate tax paid
on any money donated to them by UK tax-payers.
As a UK taxpayer you will pay tax on your earnings, savings or pensions, at either a basic
rate of 20% or a higher rate of 40%.
If you make a donation to charity, this donation will come from money that you have already
paid tax on. As a charity, we can reclaim this tax back from the Government.
This means that if you donate £10, and use Gift Aid, it’s actually worth £12.50. Which is
great news for us!
And because this additional money comes to us straight from the government, not out of
your pocket, you would still only be giving us £10 of your own money. Which is great news
You can use Gift Aid if the amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax you've paid in
any tax year (from 6th April one year to 5th April the next) covers the amount of tax we will
reclaim on your donations.
For advice on how to check if you've paid enough tax to use Gift Aid, please visit the HMRC website.
If you pay higher rate tax, you can also claim the difference between the higher rate of tax
(40%) and the basic rate (20%) on the total (gross) value of your donation.
For more information on claiming back higher rate tax please visit the HMRC website.
It's easy! All you need to do is print out and fill in a short declaration [PDF file : 153KB]
confirming that you are a UK tax payer. Once you have completed and returned this form to us, we'll be able to claim
the tax back on all of the donations you have made to us for the past four years, and on any
future donations you may make. It really is as simple as that!
Once you have made your declaration, please be sure to let us know if your name or
address changes, or if you stop paying tax.
