Could you be a Gift Aid donor?
If you live in the UK, pay tax on your income and donate your unwanted items to Break you can become a Gift Aid donor and in doing so we can claim 25p extra for every £1 raised by your donations. It doesn’t cost you anything extra but makes a huge difference to us!
What is Gift Aid?
When you agree to be a Gift Aid donor, you give your permission for Break to claim an extra 25% of the value of your donation from the Government. The money comes from the Income or Capital Gains Tax that you have already paid - It’s a way of telling the Government which charitable causes you support. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, as long as the tax you’ve already paid for the year is equal or more than the 25% claim we make on your behalf.
“I was surprised to learn with how much extra my donated items had raised, it’s definitely worthwhile signing up!”
Gift Aid can only be claimed on a voluntary gift of money, so when you donate items, we have to tell you how much those items have raised, and then we can claim the additional 25% from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
For Break to claim Gift Aid on your behalf:
- You must be a UK tax payer
- The items you donate must be yours to give
- You must agree for us to keep the money raised by your donations
Sign up with an e-mail address and ensure even more money goes to support Break’s vital services for vulnerable children, young people and families. We won’t share your details with any other organisation, and will only contact you to let you know how much your donations have raised for Break, and to say Thank You each time you donate. Your support helps us change young lives.
To become a donor is easy, you can sign up for Gift Aid by visiting one of our shops, where you’ll be given a card with their unique donor ID on it.
