The Gift Aid scheme is a government initiative which enables charities like ActionAid to reclaim the basic rate tax that has already been paid on donations received. As a result, the value of each donation increases by 25%.
If you are a UK tax payer, you can enable ActionAid to claim vital extra funds from the government. It won't cost you a penny to sign up for Gift Aid, but ActionAid will receive an additional 25 pence for every £1 you donate.
Even better, once you've signed up, we can claim Gift Aid on any gifts you've made in the past four years and any you make in the future.
So please sign up for Gift Aid when you buy your Gifts in Action. And should your circumstances change, please write to us to let us know that you no longer pay tax or capital gains tax on your savings.
