Gift Aid – Making your donation go further
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple way to increase the value of your gift to Group B Strep Support – at no extra cost to you. If you pay tax in the UK Group B Strep Support can reclaim the basic rate tax (25%) on your gift. So, if you donate £100, it is worth £125 to us.
Do I qualify for Gift Aid?
In order for Group B Strep Support to reclaim the tax you have paid on your donations, you must have paid income or capital gains tax (in the UK) for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) at least equal to the tax the charities you donate to will reclaim on your gifts for that tax year.
How do I sign up to Gift Aid?
If you would like to send us a donation by post, set-up a regular donation or would like us to claim Gift Aid on the donations you have kindly made in the past four years to Group B Strep Support, please complete one of the following forms:
What do I do if my tax status changes or I want to cancel my declaration?
To let us know if you stop paying tax or wish to cancel your declaration, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0330 120 0795.
Can I claim Gift Aid on the funds I have raised?
To claim Gift Aid on your fundraising, we must have the first name or initials, last name, full home address and postcode of each individual donor/sponsor. So please encourage them to tick the Gift Aid box on your sponsorship form when they sponsor you. Without these details we legally can’t claim Gift Aid – so be strict with your supporters!
