Make your donation 25% BIGGER at no cost to you
You can make your donation 25% bigger every time you donate at no extra cost to yourself providing you are a UK taxpayer. This is thanks to the Government’s Gift Aid scheme to help charities.
All you have to do is to confirm you are a taxpayer when you make your donations (simply tick the box) and confirm your address. The gift aid is then automatically reclaimed and added to your donation and sent to your See The Difference project.
If you are a higher rate tax payer you can claim the difference between the 25% and the higher rate as part of your tax return.
How Gift Aid is worked out
The government (HMRC) refunds the tax you paid on your charitable donation in line with the basic tax rate (20%). This means if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to the charity.
