Increase your donation through Gift Aid

Gift Aid allows U.K. charities to claim back the basic rate tax already paid by donors on their gifts. This means that the Chapel & York UK Foundation can claim back from the government, on your behalf, 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of your donation to your chosen fund by 25%.

Are you eligible?

To qualify, you must be a U.K. taxpayer who has paid income or capital gains tax equal to the tax that will be claimed on your donation. You are a U.K. taxpayer if:

  • tax is taken from your wages at source (i.e., PAYE);
  • you fill out a self‐assessment form;
  • you have any taxable savings (for example, in a building society), a pension plan, or investment income;
  • you have paid capital gains tax or expect to pay it in the near future.

How it works

If a donation is eligible for Gift Aid, Chapel & York will submit and process a claim to HMRC and grant the reclaimed tax to your charity of choice along with your donation. 

To reclaim the tax on your donation, you must complete the Gift Aid declaration.
