Gift Aid

The Gift Aid Scheme allows The Donkey Sanctuary to reclaim the basic rate tax back from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on any donation from individual supporters who pay UK tax.

Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.


Gift Aid is reclaimed by the charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year.


How can I Gift Aid my donations?

In order to make a donation using Gift Aid, please complete our gift aid declaration form.

You can use Gift Aid if the amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax you’ve paid for the tax year in which you make your donation is greater than or equal to the tax that we reclaim on your donation.

A tax year runs from 6 April in one year to 5 April in the next.

Other taxes such as VAT and Council tax do not qualify, nor does any non-UK tax.

If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim further tax relief, (the difference between the higher rate and the basic rate of tax) on your Self Assessment tax return.

An overview of the Gift Aid Scheme is available on the HM Revenue & Customs website.
