What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid adds 25p to every £1 donated, at no cost to the donor. It’s a Government scheme that enables charities to claim this ‘extra money’ from tax that people have already paid. To allow us to claim Gift Aid, the donor has to be a UK taxpayer and have paid sufficient Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover the amount BHF will reclaim in the tax year. Gift Aid raises extra funds like magic, so please ask everyone who donates and is a UK taxpayer to fill in the Gift Aid form (using their home address). And please be sure to send it to us after your event. You’ll find a Gift Aid form and pre-paid envelope in your Fundraising Kit.
