How much more could I give with Gift Aid?
How does Gift Aid work?
It's simple. As soon as you give your permission by completing a Gift Aid declaration form, we can claim the tax back on your donation. This means that a £10 donation will be worth £12.50 and for every £50 gift, we will actually receive £62.50.
Do I have to give regularly?
No. We can claim the tax back on a donation of any amount that has been made to us in the last four years. It doesn't matter whether you make a one off donation or set up a regular standing order or direct debit. A single Gift Aid declaration will cover all future donations that you make to Macmillan.
