Gift Aid FAQs

Here are the frequently asked questions around Gift aid donations and gifts.

Am I eligible for Gift Aid?

To be eligible you have to be a UK taxpayer, paying tax on your salary, savings, investments, pensions or capital gains. All these qualify, as long as the total tax you pay is at least equal to the amounte we, and other charities you donate to, can reclaim on your donations.

How much more will my donations be worth?

For every donation you give, we get an extra 25% from the government. So if you give £4, we can get an additional £1. A £20 gift will be worth £25 - with the extra £5 coming from the government. It also counts donations you've made in the past, up to four years ago.

Are there any hidden charges?

No. Gift Aid is taken from tax you've already paid, so there's no charge to you. It doesn't affect your tax status either.

Do I have to make a declaration for every donation?

No. Once you've completed and returned your form, you won't have to do it again for Exeter Leukaemia Fund. You should however, let us know if your tax status changes by calling 01392 247725.

What if I give through Gift Aid to other charities?

That's great. You can Gift Aid all your donations to different charities - you just have to tick theGift Aid declaration for each charity you support, and make sure you pay enough tax to cover them. Again, if you're unsure, feel free to call us on 01932 247725.
