Are You Eligible to Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a scheme available to charities like ours, which enables the charity to claim an extra 25p from HMRC (at no extra cost to the donor), for every £1 donated by the donor. (See below for explanation).
You are eligible to Gift Aid if you have paid at least as much in income tax or capital gains tax in the current tax year.
For donations made via a donor platform, such as Give as You Live, you will be asked by them if you can Gift Aid. We have no direct involvement other than to receive the funds.
For donations being made directly to CIS'ters, either by cheque or bank, please contact us if you are able to Gift Aid so that we can include this when processing our annual claim to HMRC.
If you are also one of our amazing regular donors and have not told us you are eligible to Gift Aid, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
