Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your gift can be increased by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost to you.

Gift Aid is a way for charities  to increase the value of monetary gifts from UK taxpayers by claiming back the basic rate tax paid by the donor on the gift. 

When making a donation online, you'll be asked if you would like to use Gift Aid. By checking yes, you'll be confirming the following.

  1. You are a UK taxpayer
  2. This is your own money
  3. You are not making a gift on behalf of a group, company, or someone else
  4. That the following statement applies to you:

"I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference."

If you are paying by direct debit or making a recurring gift, please let Facing History know if your UK tax paying circumstances change in the future, should they affect the Gift Aid eligibility of your gifts.

If you are interested in using the Gift Aid option and would like more information please contact Facing History at +44 (0)20 3096 7844 or UK [at] facinghistory.org. For full details about Gift Aid and for answers to tax questions please visit HM Revenue & Customs.
