The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. Charities or CASCs take your donation - which is money you've already paid tax on - and reclaim the basic rate tax from HMRC. on its 'gross' equivalent - the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.
In order to make a Gift Aid donation you’ll need to make a Gift Aid declaration. All you need to do is complete the simple form which is downloadable below one form can cover every gift made to the same charity or CASC for whatever period you choose, and can cover gifts you have already made and/or gifts you may make in the future.
You can donate to us through a Gift Aid Certificate

To be eligible for Gift Aid you need to be a UK tax payer and pay sufficient tax (income or capital gains) to equal the amount you have donated. We can then reclaim tax against all the donations you have made in the last six years and on all future donations you may make.
Republic of Ireland:
Changes in Government tax laws mean that, since 2001, certain donations to approved charities are eligible for tax relief. For PAYE individuals, this means that your donation could be worth an additional 66% to the Meningitis Help Charitable Trust - at no extra cost to you!
For self-assessed and company tax-payers, tax credits may apply.
