Gift Aid on Donations
If a donor is a UK taxpayer, gift aid can be claimed on their donation meaning additional funds for the Health Charity – at NO COST to the donor. An additional 25p per pound can be raised so it’s really worth the effort.
It’s really important that on behalf of UHB, the Health Charity reclaims gift aid on all eligible donations. When you receive a donation from an individual, please obtain the home address of the donor and ensure that the gift section on the donation form is completed. Donors are usually very happy to learn that we can obtain extra support at no cost to them.
We also will send a thank you letter from the Health Charity and of course, if you wish to send a personal note too, that’s no problem.
In order for us to claim gift aid, it is vital that we have the donor’s name and home address and consent. Gift aid cannot be claimed on donations via company cheques.
Please make sure that the donation form is completed fully and clearly for us to read.
