If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase your donation to us by 25% at no extra cost to you. This is tremendously valuable to us, and we therefore ask you to take five minutes to email us a Gift Aid Declaration.
HMRC Allow Gift Aid Declarations to be sent by email as long as they are in an approved form. An example is below. Please note that the email must include your first name (not initial), surname, first line of your home address and postcode. Please send your email to:
Sample Gift Aid Declaration:
I, Joe Bloggs, whose home address is:
1 Acacia Avenue
I would like the Friends of the Swiss Garden (Registered Charity No 1015724) to reclaim the tax on this and any other eligible donations or membership subscriptions that I may make in the future or have made in the past 4 years. I understand that I need to pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all my donations otherwise it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.
Please let us know if you change your name or home address.
You may cancel your declaration at any time by notifying us.
Higher-rate taxpayers may claim further tax relief on donations made under the Gift Aid Scheme.
Corporate donations and those made from Charitable Trusts or Foundations are not eligible for Gift Aid.
