Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. It is a scheme administered by the Inland Revenue which allows us to claim 25p for every £1 that you donate from your personal money. So, for example, if you donate £40 we can claim an extra £10, making your gift worth £50.
You simply need to have paid, or will pay in the current tax year, an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax that is at least equal to the tax that Jessie’s Fund and other charities you donate to will reclaim on your donations. You can find the government’s detailed information about Gift Aid here.
If you donate to us online you will have the opportunity to tick the box which confirms you would like to Gift Aid your donation. If you would like to send us a donation by post, it will help us if you do so with the form which you can download here.
Donating via Gift Aid makes a huge difference to us – thank you!
