Gift Aid

Did you know that you can Gift Aid your donation?

Gift Aid is a tax relief from the Government which helps charities to earn more on their donations.

To give under the Gift Aid scheme donors must be U.K. taxpayers and have paid sufficient tax (as income tax and/or capital gains tax) to cover the amount that will be claimed by the charity in each tax year.

By completing a Gift Aid form, available from Reception or by ticking the relevant Gift Aid permissions when donating online, we can claim the tax back on your donation, at no extra cost to you.  This will increase the value of your donation and for every £1.00 donated Walsall Society for the Blind can reclaim 25p of tax.

This means that for every £1.00 donated, we will receive £1.25 and for every £10.00 donated we will receive £12.50.

If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you
