Gift Aid Your Donation

Gift Aid explained 

Gift aid is a fantastic way to make your donation go further. At no extra cost to you CLDF can earn an additional 25% on each donation you make!

What is gift aid?

Gift aid is a government scheme designed for charities which allows us to claim the tax you have already paid on donations back from HMRC.

The technical bit:

  • You must be a UK tax payer
  • We can claim gift aid on individual donations or from sponsorship
  • We can’t claim gift aid on sales, entry fees or tickets, competitions or when donors can’t be traced i.e. from a bucket collection
  • There are a few rule and exceptions to keep in mind please call 0121 212 6022 for advice

In order to claim gift aid CLDF need an up to date valid signed declaration from you. Please complete the form below to make your declaration. To request a postal declaration please either email or call 0121 212 6022. This form provides us with all the necessary details needed to make a gift aid claim.

Gift Aid details

• I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it
is my responsibility to pay any difference.
• I confirm that other taxes such as Council Tax and VAT do not qualify for Gift Aid.
• I confirm that my declaration covers this and any future donations I may make to CLDF.
• I understand that I may cancel this declaration at any time and that I must do so by notifying CLDF if I cease to be a UK taxpayer or no longer pay income or
capital gains tax equal to the tax CLDF reclaims.
• I confirm that if I pay income tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due, I must include all my gift aid donations on
my self-assessment tax return or ask HMRC to adjust my tax code.
• If you are unsure whether your donations qualify for Gift Aid tax relief, please contact CLDF.
