Please Gift Aid your membership fee


Gift Aid increases the value of payments to charities by allowing us to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift. If you pay higher rate tax you can claim extra relief on your payments. If you claim age-related allowances or tax credits, Gift Aid payments can sometimes increase your entitlement.


The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid payments are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. Charities will take your donation - which is money you've already paid tax on - and reclaim the basic rate tax from HMRC on its 'gross' equivalent - the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.
