Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows charities to reclaim the tax that you have already paid on your donations through income tax or capital gains tax.
So if you are a UK taxpayer, Bliss can reclaim the tax and add an extra 25p for every £1 you donate, at no extra cost to you!
On your behalf, we simply claim back the tax from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Donations you have made in the last four years may be eligible for the scheme.
So if you want your donation to go further, Gift Aid it.
Please call us on 020 7378 5740 to let us know that you would like to Gift Aid your donations and we can send you a Gift Aid form or you can download one from this link. We will then send you a confirmation in the post. It’s that simple.
To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains must at least equal the amount we will claim in the tax year (Council tax and VAT are not included under the terms).
