Gift Aid – How it works?

Making Your Donations Go 28% Further

As a supporter of Brinsley Animal Rescue you will know how hard we work to ensure that every penny we raise goes as far as it can to help us rescue sick, injured and abandoned animals. Through Gift Aid and Transitional Relief, you can help us make your donations go 28% further and it won’t cost you a penny! 

How does it work?

So long as you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid enables you to boost the value of your donations by 28p for every £1 you give (25p in Gift Aid and a further 3p in Transitional Relief) to your favourite charity.  So, for example, if you decide to give £10 to Brinsley Animal Rescue, we will be able to reclaim an extra £2.80 from HM Revenue & Customs. It might not sound like a lot, but every penny really does count!  What is more, if you are a higher rate taxpayer, you are entitled to claim tax relief on your donations, enabling you to reclaim as much as 25p from every £1 donated to charity. 

What do you need to do? 

To donate through Gift Aid, all you need to do is complete a simple declaration (orally or in writing) confirming that you are a taxpayer and that you are happy for us to claim tax relief on your donation. Just one declaration can apply to all donations that you have made to us over the past 6 years and to any forthcoming gifts you make, until you notify them otherwise.  It is that simple.
