Gift Aid is a convenient way to show your support for The Guild of Aid as it is quick and easy to set up and increases the donation you make to us at no extra cost to you. How does it Work? Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows us, as a registered charity, to reclaim 20% basic rate tax on any gifts you make. To make a Gift Aid declaration, you must be a UK taxpayer. This includes people who are retired and still pay tax on savings and pensions. So, for every £1 you donate, we receive an extra 25p from HM Revenue and Customs. Gift Aid can be claimed from any of the following forms of donations: cash, cheque, credit or debit card, standing order or direct debit, postal order or telegraphic transfer. You should be paying Income Tax, or Capital Gains Tax, equal to the amount The Guild of Aid can reclaim on your donations in any particular year. To make a Gift Aid declaration, please contact us on 020 7935 0641 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
