Giving from the UK

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a UK government tax scheme, which enables the Hall to claim tax relief on donations from UK tax payers. If you would like to see 25% added on top of your gift, please complete and send us this Gift Aid Declaration – which can either be open ended (applying to a current donation and all future donations) or relating to a particular gift. Or, if making a new gift, you can Gift Aid it on our UK Giving Form.

For every £1 a UK tax payer donates, 25p in reclaimed tax is added. A £100 gift with Gift Aid, therefore, is worth £125 to the Hall.

  • In order for your gifts to be eligible for Gift Aid, you must be a UK taxpayer who will have paid an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities that you donate to will reclaim on your gifts for that tax year (currently 25p for every £1 you donate). N.B. Other taxes that you may pay, such as VAT or Council Tax, do not qualify for Gift Aid relief.
  • Donations from companies are not eligible for Gift Aid. However, the company can treat the gift as an allowable expense, making a saving on Corporation Tax.
  • Gifts made with Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) vouchers have already had Gift Aid claimed on them by CAF and passed to the charity, so further Gift Aid cannot be claimed.
  • You can further support us by nominating the Hall to receive all or part of any tax repayment. To donate your repayment to St Edmund Hall, please complete the SA100 Charity Form and post it with your tax return or complete the form online. You must include the Hall’s unique code – WAB88YG. This facility is only available to individual taxpayers, not to partnerships, trusts or estates.
