Support Staffordshire can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate. That’s as long as you’ve paid the basic rate of tax and made the donation from your own funds. That means Gift Aid can increase the value of your donations by 25%, so you can give even more to the causes you care about.

How to do it:

When donating money: Simply tick the Gift Aid box when completing our form online.

When sponsoring an activity: Simply complete the sponsor form in full with your name, house number and post code and tick the gift aid box if you are eligible. OR, complete the gift aid declaration on the online giving site you are using (e.g. Just Giving).

Does my donation qualify for Gift Aid?

Gift Aid can be claimed on both individual and sponsorship donations provided they are gifts. 

Certain donations are not eligible for Gift Aid. If your donations fall into any of the following categories, Gift Aid should not be claimed:

  • You have been charged an entry fee e.g. a ticket for a performance or a sports event
  • You have bought something
  • You have entered a competition e.g. a raffle or sweepstake
  • Your donation is on behalf of someone else or a group of people e.g. collection from work colleagues
  • A challenge event cost is being paid for out of sponsorship raised
  • Donations made with a company’s money or other people’s money. This includes amounts raised through fundraising (e.g. a bake sale). That means you won’t be able to ask us to claim Gift Aid on such funds.
  • If you are connected to a challenge participant in some way then your sponsorship donation will only qualify for Gift Aid if the participant pays for the full cost of the challenge themselves. This includes if you are a spouse, civil partner, or relative of the participant, or you are a company that is under the control of the participant.
Am I eligible?
 
To be eligible to sign up to Gift Aid, you must be a current UK taxpayer. This has to be either Income tax or Capital Gains tax and you need to have paid enough tax to cover the amount that you are donating in that tax year to both us and other charities that you are gift aiding with.
 
If you are a higher taxpayer you can claim additional tax relief by claiming the difference between the basic rate tax that we will claim and the amount of tax that you have paid. For further details on how to do this, please contact your tax office.
