Gift Aid

Gift aid is a simple government initiative which allows you to increase the value of your donations at no extra cost to you. HM Revenue and Customs regards membership subscriptions as ‘donations.


Therefore, your group can claim gift aid on these. You can also get gift aid on money donated for sponsored events. Gift aid is not available on camp or trips fees because the benefit to the ‘donor’ is regarded as too high to qualify for the scheme.


For every pound donated you can claim 25p from HM Revenue and Customs, helping your donations go further.
