Gift Aid

Your donation +25%

If you’re a UK tax payer, Gift Aid can top up your donations to Bluntisham Baptist Church by 25% at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid is a government scheme allowing charities and community groups to increase the value of donations made to them.

How Gift Aid works

Gift Aid is a UK Government initiative that allows tax relief on money donated to UK charities. It lets charities reclaim the basic tax rate for a total of 25% on every donation. This means that for every £1 donated, HMRC provides an additional £0.25 supplement. (Please note: tax rates are subject to change.) If you pay a higher rate of income tax, your donations may be included in the allowances on your tax return. This means that your donation costs you 20 - 25% less.

Gift Aid rules

To qualify for Gift Aid, you must:

  • Be a registered UK tax payer
  • Be donating your own money (not money collected or raised offline, or money donated on behalf of someone else)
  • Pay enough income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount reclaimed by all charities donated to in this tax year (VAT and council tax do not qualify).
  • Confirm that the donation is for the general use of the charity and will not in any way directly benefit the donor or their family (membership fees do not normally qualify for Gift Aid)
  • Provide personal details on our Gift Aid declaration
