What is Gift Aid
Gift Aid is a really easy way to make your donation to Tenovus Cancer Care go even further. It's a government scheme which means if you are a UK tax payer, you can increase your gift by 25% at no extra cost to you.
That means for every £1 you donate, we can reclaim an extra 25p! It's free money from the Taxman! Gift Aid makes a huge difference to how much money we can raise, and each year we’re able to claim around £500,000!
Who is eligible for Gift Aid?
You need to be a UK taxpayer and pay more money in income tax, than the amount that you Gift Aid in any tax year. For example, if you donate £500 over the course of a tax year, we can claim an extra £125 through Gift Aid (making your donation worth £625). You need to pay more income tax during the tax year than £125 to be eligible. If it is less, then it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
