Make your support go further

Gift Aid is a Government Scheme that allows charities like Delfina Foundation to reclaim from HMRC the tax you have paid on your donations.

This means that if you agree to Gift Aid your contributions, HMRC will ‘top up’ every payment you make with the amount of basic tax paid, that is, for every £1 you give us, we will obtain an additional 25p at no extra cost to you. These much-needed additional funds make a vital difference to our work and we truly appreciate if you have decided to further support us in this way.

Understanding Gift Aid

In order for your gifts to qualify for Gift Aid, you must be a UK taxpayer and what you pay in income and/or capital gains tax must at least equal the total amount that the charities and community amateur sport clubs that you support will reclaim for your donations in each tax year. Please remember to check that you have paid sufficient tax, as it would be your responsibility to pay any difference to HMRC. If your circumstances change or you no longer pay sufficient tax, you can cancel this declaration at any time.

You pay UK income or capital gains tax if:

– income tax is taken from your wages or salary before you receive your pay
– you pay tax after filling in a self-assessment form each year
– you have any taxable savings, or a pension plan, or any other investment income
– you have paid any capital gains tax, e.g. on the sale of a property or share
