Make a Difference Today

Small donations change lives

It’s midnight. A child is crying, unable to sleep. He hasn’t eaten today and the hunger pains keep him awake. His mother’s heart breaks at the sound, knowing there’s little money for food tomorrow either.
Friday night: 9pm. A young man makes his way home from a bar. He has a few shillings left in his pocket and decides to spend them on a girl, who sits huddled by the side of the road. The ‘prostitute’ is 8-years-old and gives her body for the price of a meal.
Heshima kicks a ball across a small patch of dirt. Her brother has gone to school today but there’s no money for Heshima’s education. She will be married as a young teenager and have a child before she reaches adulthood.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!UK taxpayers: Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Chaffinch to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that every £1 you donate becomes £1.25, at no extra cost to you!

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Chaffinch to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Chaffinch will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Chaffinch receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
