A Gift Aid declaration allows Sadaqah Jariyah Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Sadaqah Jariyah Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Sadaqah Jariyah Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.
All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
By ticking the “Yes, I would like to claim Gift Aid” box, you agree that you would like Sadaqah Jariyah Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations you have made, as well as any future donations, until you notify them otherwise. You understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year you may be asked to pay any difference. You understand that Sadaqah Jariyah Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you give.
