Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows tax relief on money donated to UK charities. UK tax payers can top their donation up by 25% from the government which can make a huge difference to small charities and community groups.
If a charity isn’t registered with the Charity Commision or HMRC then it can’t normally claim Gift Aid, however at Localgiving we take care of the claim process so that unregistered charities and community groups can benefit too! For more details about how this works please click here
