Tick the Gift Aid box on donations so charities don’t miss out on £600m extra funding
Tick the Gift Aid box on your donations, government urges, as charities miss out on £600m extra funding.
People giving to charity are being encouraged by the government to declare Gift Aid on their donations, and boost the money that reaches their charity of choice at no extra cost.
The call comes after research showed that charities are losing out on potentially hundreds of millions of pounds in extra funding.
Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, Robert Jenrick MP, said:
- The UK has thousands of brilliant charities, all working hard to make people’s lives better. Through Gift Aid, we are already giving charities an extra £1.3 billion of funding so they can continue their important work.
- We know how crucial this funding is. This is why we’ve just written to 50,000 charities to tell them about the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme, which makes it even easier for charities to claim a 25% top-up on their donations.
